2012 NFL Combine Results: Temple's Bernard Pierce Among Top RB Performers In Broad Jump, Vertical Jump

The 2012 NFL Combine results for Sunday's workouts is available for the running backs (via NFL.com).

Temple's Bernard Pierce wasn't known as a speedster in college and wasn't expected to blow anyone away with his 40-yard dash time. He did however put up a respectable 4.49 in the event. His 10-yard split time was a 1.52 which was better than LaMichael James' 1.6.

In the 225-pound bench press, Pierce did 17 reps. Pierce's vertical jump was marked at 36.5 inches. His best event was the broad jump: 123 inches. Pierce also finished the 3-cone drill in 7.07 seconds and the 20-yard shuttle drill in 4.28 seconds.

Pierce was in the top ten in the broad jump (tied for 2nd), vertical jump (tied for 5th) and 3-cone drill (9th). Pierce's grade at NFL.com ranks him as a draftable player in the 4th-7th round.
