Bench pressing Field Yates has apparently become a thing on NFL Live.
It all started when former offensive lineman turned ESPN analyst Damien Woody bench pressed Yates for a NFL Live segment in February. Woody did 26 reps with the 165-pound reporter.
On Monday, projected first overall pick Myles Garrett took a turn bench pressing Yates. The former Texas A&M defensive end did 25 reps with Yates, one rep less than the record set by Woody.
It doesn’t look like Garrett’s draft stock will take a hit, though. He’s still the unquestioned top prospect in the draft, even though the 39-year-old Woody is apparently better at lifting human beings.
