Draft Kelvin Benjamin

I love Benjamin and Robinson but they're not better than Moncrief. Matthews isn't even on his level (that'd be like comparing Allen to Gordon), but he remains a very good talent.

My Top 12:

1.) Watkins - Top 5

2.) Lee - First

3.) Moncrief - First

4.) Evans - First

5.) Cooks - FIrst

6.) Robinson - First/Second

7.) Benjamin - First/Second

8.) Landry - Second

9.) Matthews - Second

10.) Beckham - Second

11.) Parker - Second

12.) Coleman - Third

Watkins, Evans,and lee will definetly be gone before the 19th pick.in a best case scenerio.

That leaves moncrief, cooks, robinson, and benjamin from the 19th pick down. Not to mention at least 3 teams with wr as a high priority after that who pick before us.. So I eliminate cooks cause he small and will keep smitty from preserving career in the slot. That leaves 3 bpa Wr left. So are you not willing to take Benjamin at our pick if he makes it pas those 3 teams?

After the 1st rd you could be left with landry and below hoping they make it to the bottom

I like Benjamin, but I think he's a Brandon Lafell 2.0. He'll have a big game or two, but for the most part, Benjamin comes off as an inconsistent WR. I'm sold on Matthews from Vanderbilt. He's the SEC's all time leader in yards and receptions, which is no easy task to accomplish. This guy seriously reminds me of Andre Johnson. Really hope we get him in the first round.

Lol at comparing Benjamin to Lafell. Matthews is good but stats ain't everything.

I think that if Cooks runs a 4.41 to 4.44, he'll be drafted in the Top 25. Brandin is a firecracker.

 

If Benjamin makes his way down to us, we should draft him and never look back. Without a doubt. However, he's not the best receiver in this draft. He's a very raw version of Roddy White.

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.

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

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.

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