PITTSBURGH (AP) -- The question comes up in every meeting Jordan Whitehead has with NFL teams considering drafting the talented if enigmatic Pittsburgh safety, bench press or highlight-reel play., one that could have as much of an impact on where Whitehead begins his pro career as any 40-yard dash

There's little question about Whitehead's ability. He has the speed, an uptick from 21 at the combine. He knows he didn't have to lift again but wanted to show the 26 NFL teams that stopped by on Wednesday that he ''had a little bit more left in the tank.'', athleticism and versatility to fit in on both sides of the ball. He bench pressed 185 pounds 24 times on Wednesday

however,The questions,Authentic A.J. Green Jersey,  linger. Teammate Avonte Maddox, admitted teams have brought Whitehead's name up during Maddox's own sit-downs them., a four-year starter at cornerback for the Panthers who is likely a mid-round selection in the draft

Green Jersey,''They ask me about what's going on and this and that,Authentic John Ross Jersey,great person off the field. You won't get a lot of trouble out of Jordan.
