6. Brian Cushing
With the 15th pick in the 2009 NFL Draft, the Houston Texans selected USC workout warrior, Brian Cushing. NFL scouts described Cushing as a player who was fast enough to play linebacker and strong enough to play defensive end.
In 2009 a video surfaced of Cushing muscling through 35 reps of 225 pounds on the bench, breaking the all-time record at Joe DeFranco’s legendary athletic training facility that has served as a training grounds for elite NFL players. While allegations of PED’s have surrounded him throughout his career, those who know Cushing swear by his strict dedication; which includes not consuming any alcohol or junk food, and having his meals custom made and delivered to him.
