Former Georgia Tech defensive back Jemea Thomas got off to a good start at the NFL draft combine, bench pressing 225 pounds 19 times Monday. It was the sixth best total among cornerbacks, according to nfl.com.
There were 39 cornerbacks invited to participate at the combine. Thomas earned a reputation at Tech as one of the team’s most dedicated and powerful weight lifters.
Thomas will complete his work at the combine Tuesday with the 40-yard dash, vertical jump, broad jump and other agility and skill tests.
