    324lbs? That is a good sign, imo.

    Len Pasquarelli, of, reports University of Maryland OT Jared Gaither had a solid overall workout for NFL scouts Monday, July 9, and likely will be taken in the league's supplemental draft Thursday, July 12. Scouts clocked Gaither at between 4.98 and 5.14 seconds in the 40-yard dash, 4.49 and 4.53 seconds in the short shuttle and 7.12 and 7.25 seconds in the cone drill. He posted a vertical jump of 31 1/2 inches and a broad jump of 9-foot-3. Gaither, however, completed only 15 repetitions on the 225-pound bench press after slightly injuring his shoulder last week. Gaither measured a height of 6-foot-8 3/4 and a weight of 324 pounds.
    No spring practices so he got down to that weight on his own.

    Also that's around the same reps he did as a recruit, so the "injury" might be BS.

    That's damn good speed for a player his size. There aren't many Broncos lineman that could run a 5.14 right now.....

      Having extra long arms doesn't help with the bench either, but those are impressive numbers outside that.

        His longer arms are a disadvantage but I think it is offset by his chest size. He still doesn't have to move the weight as far as most of us mere mortals.
