The amount that the average NFL player can bench press varies depending on a number of factors, such as their position, age, and training program. However, it is generally accepted that most NFL players are able to lift weights well above the average for their size and weight.
According to the NFL Combine, which is a pre-draft event where potential NFL players are evaluated for their physical abilities, the average bench press for an offensive lineman is around 26 repetitions of 225 pounds (102 kg), while the average for a defensive lineman is around 24 repetitions. For other positions, such as running backs, wide receivers, and quarterbacks, the average bench press is typically lower, with most players able to lift between 10 and 20 repetitions of 225 pounds (102 kg).
It is important to note that these are only averages, and there is significant variation among NFL players in terms of their bench press strength. Many players are able to lift well above these averages, with some offensive linemen able to lift over 40 repetitions of 225 pounds (102 kg) and some defensive linemen able to lift over 35 repetitions.
