Kelvin Benjamin NFL Draft Scouting Report

Kelvin Benjamin 1st round Position: Wide Receiver
School: Florida State
Class: Redshirt Sophomore
Height: 6-5
Weight: 235
Draft Stock: First round; tier one WR




From the day he steps foot in the NFL Kelvin Benjamin will be one of the most feared players in the redzone. It doesn't matter if he's double or triple teamed, Benjamin's height and length combined with his leaping ability make him impossible to defend.

Over a quarter of Benjamin's catches this year went for touchdowns, including the game winner in the National Championship Game. He's the type of receiver you can just throw the ball up to when things break down and trust he will come down with it. Not just a tall tree, Benjamin is a fluid athlete and an adept route runner, especially on slant and dig routes across the middle.

Kelvin Benjamin is no burner, but what would you expect at six foot five (not everyone can be Calvin Johnson)? My only real concern with Benjamin is with his effort level and intensity which sometimes seem to be lacking.

Benjamin compares very favorably to Saints receiver Marques Colston and I would expect about the same type of production out of him. Look for him to start drawing consideration in the teens and likely finding a home somewhere in the late first
