2012 NFL Combine: A Look At Some Combine Records

On the brink of the 2012 NFL Draft Combine, we thought it would be fun to put a few of the numbers you'll see over the next week in a bit of context. SB Nation's Louis Bien put together a primer on some of the notable records at the Combine:

40-Yard Dash

4.24 - Rondel Melendez, WR, Eastern Kentucky - 1999
4.24 - Chris Johnson, RB, East Carolina - 2008
4.28 - Jerome Mathis, WR, Hampton - 2005
4.28 - Champ Bailey, CB, Georgia - 1999

Bench Press (Most 225-Pound Reps)

51 - Justin Ernest, DT, Eastern Kentucky - 1999
45 - Mike Kudla, DE, Ohio State - 2006
45 - Leif Larsen, DT, Texas-El Paso - 2000

Vertical Jump (In Inches)

46 - Gerald Sensabaugh, FS, North Carolina - 2005
45 1/2 - Derek Wake, OLB, Penn State - 2005
45 - Chris McKenzie, CB, Arizona State - 2005
45 - Chris Chambers, WR, Wisconsin - 2001

Many of the names associated with the Chicago Bears and the 19th overall selection -- like Notre Dame receiver Michael Floyd and South Carolina receiver Ashlon Jeffrey -- won't be a threat to break these records. Still, it paints a nice picture of what the current set of NFL prospects is working against.

One other record of note: Pat McInally of Harvard is the only player to ever score a perfect 50 on the Wonderic Test. McInally played from 1976 to 1985 as a member of the Cincinnati Bengals.
