Draft Kelvin Benjamin

49 posts in this topic

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.

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 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.

(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.

I'd be very happy if we drafted Kelvin Benjamin because Cam throws the ball high and with Kelvins length I'd be helpful

So you think we're going to take another receiver with our second round pick?  I was thinking we could go after another receiver maybe with our 3 or 4th round pick.  But hey, they doubled up on DT's last draft.  For argument sake's, let's say we did take another receiver with our 2nd round pick.  My choices would be:

 

(1) Martavis Bryant - 6'4

(2) Brandon Coleman - 6'5

 

*Of course, if KB is still available, TAKE HIM.

 

Now, let's say we didn't take a receiver with our 2nd round pick.  Either we traded that pick or went after an OT and decided to go after another receiver later on in the draft.  Potential guys I would like to have that should be available would be:

 

(1) La'Damian Washington - 6'4

(2) Bruce Ellington - 5'9 - he's projected to be a 2nd/3rd round pick, but I think he's going to be taken a little later.  His height may be an issue to some NFL scouts.

I wouldnt doubt if we go WR consecutively.

 

I would have to say that taking Bryant in the 1st would be a huge reach. I dont see it happening. A lot of fans will probably be upset with that pick. Nor can I see your 2nd scenario.

 

 

 

"IF" I was Gettleman, this would be how I would go about the draft "right now":

 

(1) Antonio Richardson, OT

(2) Beckham? / Landry / Adams

(3) Moncrief / Coleman / Bryant / CB
