You don't waste a 1st or a 2nd round pick on someone who lacks motivation and has off field issues. WR pool this year is deep, and I have several players I want over him. He might have potential, but it doesn't help anyone having potential if you don't have the mindset to use it the right way.

Seriously, I know this guy has off the field issues and motivation problems, but he is one of the top 3 WRs in this draft and someone that could be a true #1 receiver.  

 

If we were lucky enough to have him fall to us, we would be on meds not to take him.

He's a late 1st guy. I won't be mad if he was the pick at all.

I'm curious specifically what these motivational and work ethic issues are.  Are they the same ones that Cam supposedly had?  Are Benjamin's coaches confirming he's regularly tardy and doesn't properly keep up with the playbook and tape study?

Can someone explain to me how someone can be a bust in the first but be a good pick in the second?

Ouside of watkins evans and beckham Benjamin is the best of the rest. The guy will at worst be a redzone monster. He is still nee to the game of football but that said shows how good he can be. I hear hes 23, so what whp cares you can still get 10 good years out of him. He may outgrown thr position and at worse what do you have? A jimmy Graham at the catch point te? He wasn't ask to run alot of routes at fsu doesnt mean he can't.

What I know about him is he got better every year at fsu. Continued to get better which speaks on his work effort. He steps up in big games florida and won thr national championship at the end. He catches with his hands doesn't let the ball get into his body. Seriously go benjamin 28, get late round value on tackles like thomas and Henderson.

In an interview last August, five months before he would catch the game-winner in the National Championship Game for Florida State, Kelvin Benjamin labeled himself "lazy," admitting he "didn't have a good attitude" and took "plays off."

 

 

 

According to NFL Media analyst Gil Brandt, when an NFL coach recently went to work Benjamin out, the wide out told the coach "he was too tired" and blew off the workout.

 

 

 

One scout, after being told of the story of the blown-off workout, speculated that Benjamin's agent might have given him the advice, perhaps not wanting his client to work out for a team at the lower end of the first round because he might have heard he'll go higher. It's a decent theory considering the ACL-tear injury suffered by guard Brandon Thomas during a recent workout for the New Orleans Saints. Limiting workouts, especially ones deemed unnecessary by some, limits exposure to injury.

Why would anyone draft a player with motivational issues?  Never take that chance.  If Football in front of 95,000 fans every Saturday does not motivate you, how good are you going to be when you are playing against the best players with the best work ethic in the world.

Well seeing as this has been the longest draft process ever..not. not to mention wasnt he doing a tv show days before that? Clowney has blown off workouts for the last few months no one bats an eye...

IMHO work ethic comes down to coaching and proper motivation.

 

My biggest fear is that he would work his way into the dreaded Rivera dog house and never see the field.

Do not want. There's something about him that screams Bust to me. That's my personal opinion about it though. I wouldn't mind him in the second round. But not in the first for sure.

Agree. It's just a guy feeling I have about this dude. Granted, my gut feelings about dudes have been wrong before, BUT.......

I really want Cooks or OBJ. I think Cooks might be there at 28, but not OBJ.

Work ethic is something that you inherently have in you...not external.
