Some people applauded earlier this week when former USC safety Talanoa Hufanga said he wasn’t working out at an elite gym for Pro Day but doing one-on-workouts with Troy Polamalu to help with the mental aspects of football.
Maybe he should have hired a trainer since he did only 12 reps on the benchpress. No one else is going to mention this, however.
The good thing for Hufanga is his film will get him drafted in the mid rounds and his other Pro Day marks were fine.
One of the frustrating things from Pro Day was I didn’t hear anyone list the 10-yard dash marks for Marlon Tuipulotu, who chose not to run the 40.
The 10-yard mark is actually more important for offensive and defensive linemen. So it should be made public.
Jay Tufele, who is about the same size as Tuipulotu, didn’t mind running the 40 and had a nice mark (4.97).
