Stephen Paea Breaks NFL Combine Bench Press Record With 49 Repetitions (Video) Oregon State’s Stephen Paea may not have been a household name heading into the weekend.

On Sunday, however, the defensive tackle has caught the attention of the entire sports world after he bench pressed 225 pounds 49 times, setting a new NFL combine record. Paea passed guard Mitch Petrus (2010), defensive end Mike Kudla (2006) and defensive tackle Leif Larson (2000), who all put up 45 reps.

He checked in at Indy at 6-foot-1, 303 pounds, but something tells me he’s walking a little taller this week.

Check out the “live one” in the video below.
