This is what I got from it:

 

Q: If you were drafted by Panthers

A; I would be excited.  Focused on training to help my team when a super bowl.  6’5” 234. 

Q: SO many people are saying Kelvin Benjamin.  How does that make you feel? (laughs)

A: “Go to show up.  What the sport is all about.  Fans.”

Q: Caller.  Some crackhead calls in and starts talking about FSU crap—Stay healthy-love to see you in Carolina. 

Q: About WR beside Steve Smith

“Thank you.  Steve Smith good physical route runner. Love to play beside him, under him, learn a lot from him.”

Q: Another question that asks him to come to Carolina. 

  1. “The decision is not up to me.  If I become a CP, I will get y’all where you supposed to be.”

Q:  Marc refers to Rivera’s comment then leaves it.  Comes back but does not follow up…Rivera about Benjamin:    “He is a big solid WR, plays with his hands and did some good things”

Q: (Marc starts babbling about the super bowl and undrafted WRs catching passes, then transitions to having played with 2 NFL QBs—did not follow up on Rivera’s comments, which I thought was the poiint for quoting RR.  Now starts blabbing aout Florida St.)” I am a hurricane, etc etc etc.  Just pulled the guest away from the audience to let him know that he likes Miami U.  Referring to Miami as “we.” What a joke)

Q: What would you bring to the Panthers:  “No days off.  Great teammate. I believe in teamwork.  Nobody bigger than the others.”

  Also, a great place to raise a family.  

Q: What area do you need to improve:

A: “Route running, too high, leads to drops.  Try to run before I catch the ball…Stay low in and out of breaks”

Q: Could Richard Sherman cover you?

A: I love to compete-I would give him a run for his money.

Q: Who do you compare to?

A: Calvin Johnson. 

Q: What is ball park figure of 40 time:

A:  We have not run it yet—doing other stuff.

Final thoughts = Great leader,  push the team,  compete , love to win.  Lost 2 games in HS, 4 in college. 

Q: What # would you want? 

A: 2

Q: I don’t think they let you wear 2 in college (Yes, he said College).  You will get something in the 80s.

A: Laughs.

Mercifully, interview over. HOWEVER, Marc starts babbling about how he did not ask him about marijuana becuase it would probably hurt Benjamin's draft stock.  Wrong on many levels.

I must have read the same thing.  A lot of big WRs bust.  The ones that don't are solid workers, pretty fast, and have solid hands.  I am scared that we would be beginning a spree through WRs like detroit did before they hit paydirt with Calvin. 

 

I am actually interested in Odell, Abbrederis (I know that I did not spell that right), and Lee.

I am actually scared that he will, but I trust Gettlemen.

what off field issues? I did see that he got started at FSU a little late. 

 

If this draft is supposed to be "loaded" with WR talent (according to analysts/experts) - I just hope we don't take a guy too soon when we have bigger needs and their may be better options (like a CB or OT) in the first. Benjamin is an inticing prospect though.

Highlights:

 

These "highlights" are against DUKE and NC STATE - so you've gotta take what you see from him here with a HUGE grain of salt. He handled scrub teams pretty well. According to draft dudes, he's still pretty raw.

Incredible potential. Big game experience. Good producer. Has so far demonstrated good character. Would have the best position coach in the game along with a HoF mentor.


I don't understand the "DO NOT WANT" sentiment.

Stop being scared of greatness. BPA doesn't mean "Safest Player Avaliable." It's okay to take a chance.

I don't know of any, other than work ethic was questionable when he was a freshman.
