Jeff Owens, DT, Georgia -- 44 reps

Owens was an undersized tackle heading into the 2010 combine, likely hoping a stellar performance would get him drafted. At 6-foot-1 and 304 pounds, Owens ran a 5.01 40, then powered through 44 bench reps.

The Eagles were sufficiently impressed and selected him in the seventh round of the draft. He spent one season with the franchise before being waived in July of 2011.
