Former USC kicker David Buehler turns heads at NFL combine
1:41 PM, February 25, 2009

Former USC kicker David Buehler, who seems like a linebacker and could have been a fullback or safety, wams up for football by playing volleyball with a soccer ball. Naturally. Usually, the only guy on a football field who can't kick anyone's tail is ... the kicker.

Kickers aren't required to lift at the NFL Combine, but Buehler did -- outperforming many linebackers, tight ends and even offensive linemen. He bench pressed 225 pounds 25 times in a row -- which would have made him the strongest cornerback, second-strongest wide receiver, third-strongest safety, fourth-strongest tight end, sixth-strongest running back and eighth-strongest linebacker at the weeklong event. He actually lifted more than a couple linemen who are projected as first-round picks.

His strong legs are also quick legs. Buehler ran a pair of unofficial 40-yard dashes in 4.56 and 4.63 seconds, easily ranking among the best tight ends, linebackers and broadcasters.

Wingman, on the sidelines.
