Orson Charles Charging to Be The #1 TE at The 2012 NFL Combine
Wheww!!! It’s Christmas day for draftniks. The On the field scouting combine drills being today with Offensive linemen and tight ends today.
There are a few players who could use a good showing, and a few who did yesterday.
Orson Charles had a terrific day. Yesterday he weighed in over 250 pounds and then out benched all but one offensive linemen and all Tight Ends. For a guy who is supposed to be a faster, weaker type tight end he put some of that speculation to rest. He has a great chance to pass Dwayne Allen as the #1 Tight End
Orson Charles: The third-ranked tight end on NFLDraftScout.com’s board, Charles showed up on Thursday and told the media that he’d be thrilled if he was drafted by a team like the Falcons and needed to sit until Tony Gonzalez was done. (It’s an appropriate hypothetical for a kid who went to Georgia.) Then on Friday he made it a little harder for people to pass on him, when he benched 225 pounds 35 times. That’s eight more than the nearest tight end and more than all but one offensive lineman.
