Aidan Hutchinson, the potential No. 1 overall pick in the 2022 NFL draft, was a limited participant in the University of Michigan’s pro day. But the action that he did take part in seems to be getting a ton of attention from observers.
The 21-year-old defensive end took part in the bench press and completed 28 reps…or did he?
The video below seeems to show him getting a lot of help from his spotter on every rep.
Will this hurt his draft stock? Absolutely not. But that didn’t stop the Twitterverse from sounding off on the shady reps.
Hutchinson has emerged as a strong candidate for the Jacksonville Jaguars, who own the first selection for the second straight year. They took quarterback Trevor Lawrence to kick off the 2021 draft.
The edge-rusher enjoyed a breakout senior season with the Wolverines when he recorded 62 total tackles, 14 sacks, three passes defended and two forced fumbles in 14 appearances to capture the Ted Hendricks Award as college football’s top defensive end.
