2012 NFL Combine Results: Michigan DL Mike Martin And Michigan State DL Jerel Worthy Work Out Monday

Michigan defensive lineman Mike Martin did himself a favor Monday at the NFL Combine, registering the second-highest bench-press repetitions of anybody at the position. Martin bench pressed 225 pounds 36 times, along with UConn DT Kendall Reyes and BYU DT Loni Fangupo.

Dontari Poe stole the show, mustering 44 reps on the bench press, while also running a 4.98 40-yard dash, despite weighing in at 346 pounds. Martin, meawhile, ran the 40-yard dash in 4.88 seconds, while finishing adequately in the other tests.

Michigan State's DT Jerel Worhy, on the other hand, had a poor effort at the combine that could see him drop into the third round, according to Russ Lande of Sporting News:

Worthy didn't work out as well as he's capable of Monday. He looked out of sorts in the bag and pass rush drills. He did run well in the 40-yard dash for his size, but that was really the only area he looked good. Worthy showed poor balance and no true explosiveness throughout his workout. Once viewed as a first-round pick, he's the type of player who could continue to fall, possibly all the way to the third round.
