Former Michigan linebacker Ben Gedeon led all linebackers in the bench press on Saturday at the National Football League Combine. Gedeon benched 225 pounds 27 times.

The other top linebackers at the bench press were Marquel Lee (25), JoJo Mathis (24), Matt Milano (24), Keith Kelsey (23), Raekwon McMillan (23), and Anthony Walker (23).

Gedeon is projected to be drafted in the later rounds of the 2017 NFL Draft, but the athlete from Hudson High School (OH) knows it would be a blessing to end up with his hometown Cleveland Browns.

The 6-foot-3, 245-pound linebacker committed to Michigan on March 10, 2012. He was ranked No. 215 in the 2013 class, according to 247Sports Composite.
