Former Michigan wide receiver Junior Hemingway might have put himself in position to be drafted in April after a good performance at the NFL combine on Sunday.

The Sugar Bowl MVP posted good numbers during his drill work in Indianapolis, where he was one of three former Wolverines trying out this week. As of 4:25 p.m. Sunday, he was the top finisher in two drills.

Former Michigan defensive tackle Mike Martin competed in the bench press Sunday, putting up 36 reps. That is currently tied for third among all combine participants. Former Michigan center David Molk, who only benched at the combine as he recovers from a foot injury, is second with 41 reps among all participants. Memphis defensive tackle Dontari Poe is first with 44 reps.

Here's a look at Hemingway's numbers and where he ranked as of 4:25 p.m. Sunday:

Three-cone drill: 6.59 seconds. Leader -- Hemingway.

20-yard shuttle: 3.98 seconds, tied with Eric Page. Leader -- Hemingway and Page.
