Athletic testing isn’t the be-all and end-all when it comes to draft position, but some players put up impressive numbers at the 2012 NBA Draft Combine, while others slipped behind.

Among the most outstanding numbers were Harrison Barnes 38-inch standing vertical, Scott Machado’s 17 bench press reps, Quincy Acy’s combine-best 10.48 lane agility test, and Darius Johnson-Odom’s all-around strong showing in the vertical and in the bench press.

Below is the full list of test results, with a hat-tip going to Draft Express.

To be noted: Anthony Davis, Dion Waiters, Royce White, and Tomas Satoransky did not participate, Oregon State guard Jared Cunningham participated only in the bench press, and Kim English, Kyle O’Quinn, and Kendall Marshall did not take part in the bench press. John Henson was slowed by an ankle injury and skipped portions of the speed and agility testing.
