Tennessee DT Owen Williams puts up 42 bench press reps at pro day

In the 2016 NFL Draft, the defensive line is loaded with talent. This means that if you want to get draft, you will have to stand out and make a name for yourself, which is exactly Tennessee defensive tackle Owen Williams did at his pro day on Wednesday.

According to reports, Williams actually posted an impressive 42 reps of 225 pounds on the bench press at his pro day. Wes Rucker of 247Sports said that it looked like Williams would have gone for 45, but just stopped lifting.
