Former SEC standout Mitch Petrus, a guard from Arkansas, tied the Combine record with 45 repetitions of 225 pounds late last week.
An old foe, Georgia defensive tackle Jeff Owens, nearly matched him Monday, lifting the bar 44 times.
Owens' prowess in the weight room is no surprise. While not blessed with great quickness, his strength at the point of attack has made him one of the better run stuffers in the conference over his career.
East Carolina defensive tackle Linval Joseph (39) and Owens' former teammate, Geno Atkins (34) and UCLA's Brian Price (34) also were quite impressive in the weight room.
