Draft Kelvin Benjamin

Recommended Posts

This was a tough game for every player on FSU. They didn't have time to clean up their stats as usual. He'd be great for us in the redzone.

I wouldn't count Evans, Watkins, or Lee out so fast especially if everyone declares that is predicted. Most mock drafts I've seen still has atleast one of these on the board. Like I said on a seperate thread if these three are taken then that probably means there were some highly rated oline players that dropped, we would be better off with them as a first round pick. Because of Benjamin's size I think he would be a great 2nd rounder for someone and probably a steal for a late 2nd rounder

I think I would prefer Benjamins over Evans because due to lack of NFL QB every catch Evans made were unconventional. Every highlight is about Manziel running all over the place and then heave it to the wide open guy. It would have been nice to watch Evans operate with a QB that can step in the pocket so he could finish his route instead of broken plays.

I see your point, not all the balls thrown to him are off manziel's scramble though. Probably not even half, it just so happens that those are the highlights shown most often. I even think it's a bigger testament to see a receiver of his size be able to get open after his route and/or on a scramble, could be one of the best at doing so.

I think evans gets alot of his catches because of johnny not the other way around. He doesn't separate very well and pretty much just boxes out corners for his catches. Not that he isnt worth a first rounder,just my opinion.

Obviously didn't watch the highlight vs Alabama he did it all: separated, blocked, jump balled, and got off the jams. Def a top 5, probably top 3 WR in the draft. Not saying I'm sold on him but if he's available hard to pass on him.

I have to disagree.

 

Evans is a stud. Huge down field threat and very explosive with the ball in his hands. Evans leads Watkins, Matthews, Landry, Beckham, Cooks, and Robinson with catches of 20+ yards. He also has sure hands only behind Landry with a 3.51% drops percentage.

I think it's safe to say we're going to take 2 WR's.  Who would be your second pick? 

 

(Assuming who may be there in the late 2nd)

(1) Kelvin Benjamin

(2) Davante Adams

 

Loves Beckham but pretty sure he'd be long gone. Same with Moncrief. Would love to have "KB" and "Coleman". Imagine that receiver duo. Two 6'5" receivers added to a 6'5" TE (Olsen) with another 6'5"QB in Cam throwing them the ball. Good luck NFC South corners. Yall midget corners can get out of the way.

ESPN has him as around the 32nd best prospect so let's make it happen.

 

CBS has him as the 29th.

 

But, I'm really just waiting on Mayock's mock. I love that dude! I really do. He's the only guy I really pay attention to.
