Punter Pat O'Donnell Bench-Pressed More Than Jadeveon Clowney at NFL Combine

Jadeveon Clowney may have been drafted No. 1 overall, but people will continue to needle him due to the fact that a punter bench-pressed more reps than he did at the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis.

Former Miami punter Pat O'Donnell bench-pressed 225 pounds 23 times at the combine a few months ago, while Clowney recorded just 21 reps. While it didn't seem to hurt Clowney's draft stock at all, it might have helped O'Donnell's, as the Chicago Bears made him the first punter taken in the draft with the No. 191 overall pick in the sixth round.

Clowney may have not bench-pressed as many reps, but it's safe to say he'll be talked about more than O'Donnell over the next few years.
