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.

 

Few quotes about his "work ethic"

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.

Work Ethic is a value, or the belief in moral benefit of work and its ability to enhance our character.

In the absence of work ethic, external motivators are the driving force behind productive behaviors.  Motivational forces like coaches, paychecks, endorsements, etc.

 

I do not put much value into NFL players "work ethic" as their rewards are often externally motivated.  Give me a coach who can motivate a player and he can succeed in the absence of internal motivation.

I'd be pissed if we took him in round 1, and maybe at all before round 3. But of course I was wrong about Alshon Jeffery and Keenan Allen so I dunno. Wideouts are tough to project outside of an AJ Green slam dunk prospect. So... Who knows.

Good reasoning. I sitll believe he will be a bust, I'd rather they pick him in the second where it won't be a bigger waste than in the first. Especially when there are other players that are safer and better picks than him. Hope that makes sense, if it doesn't. Oh well, can't explain it to you any clearer.

I just have trouble with the concept of saying someone is a bust but still being ok with using a second on them. If they are going to be a bust wouldn't you just not take them and use the 2nd on somebody else?
