Kicker Hopkins can pump iron

Bills sixth-round pick Dustin Hopkins is a good-sized kicker at 6’2″ and 193 pounds. He’s also among the strongest kickers in the class when it came to the bench press.

Most kickers skip the bench press entirely. Hopkins had an impressive 20 reps on the bench. That was more than all but two of the wide receivers at the Combine and more than all but two of the cornerbacks in Indianapolis. He also out benched all but four of the safeties at the NFL Combine.

Here are some of the more notable NFL draft choices that he out benched as well.

K Dustin Hopkins – 20 reps of 225
OLB Jamie Collins – 19 reps
OLB Chase Thomas – 18 reps
OLB Khaseem Greene – 17 reps
LB/DE Damontre Moore – 12 reps
