    Oh my God, 44 reps? My eyes litterally bugged out a little bit when I read that.. that is very, very beastly. Hard to imagine that guy wasn't invited to Indy. That is a very sad story though, I wish him the best..

    (Converted tight-end to o-lineman, think Kubiak is taking a look?)

    It was a very weak attempt at sarcasm.

    Dang...I feel for the guy. Hopefully, he can heal and pursue football in the NFL if not maybe the UFL and then move up?

    44 reps on 225-Lbs. Did better then Andre Smith, who ended up going MIA during the combine. Maybe he wasn't invited b/c the media didn't pay attention to him. Iv'e noticed in the past that players who hyped-up by ESPN, Rivals, SI, etc usually end up getting invited to the combine.

    Good luck Ryan Reed!
