INDIANAPOLIS, March 6, 2018 -- EXOS athletes displayed strength, power, explosiveness, and speed while breaking records and performing position and overall bests at the 2018 NFL combine.

The 106 EXOS-supported athletes produced a record 335 top performances across their position groups. Six athletes led all combine participants in five drills — Denzel Ward in the 40-yard dash with 4.32 seconds and broad jump with 11 feet 4 inches; Mike Gesicki and Terrell Edmunds in the vertical jump with 41.5 inches; Harrison Phillips in the bench press with 42 reps, and Avonte Maddox in the 60-yard shuttle running 10.72 seconds. And eight athletes set position records including six in the new EDGE position category.

“We’re excited for all of the top performances by our supported athletes, in addition to the many personal bests and great performances during the position work,” said Adam Farrand, vice president of pro/elite sports at EXOS. “During combine preparation, the athletes put in full days consisting of twice-a-day strength and speed training, position-specific work, and preparing for media interviews and the Wonderlic test. We’re excited to see the rest of our athletes perform at their pro days and for all the results to pay off at the draft.”

In addition to the athletes who participated at the combine, 41 other athletes supported by EXOS over the eight-week prep program will be putting their hard work on display at their pro days.

“We’re fortunate to work with the top agencies in the world who continue to put their trust in EXOS to ensure their athletes perform their best in Indy,” said Trent Wilfinger, senior vice president of elite sports at EXOS. “We take that responsibility seriously, and we’re honored to support another year of top performances.”
