Florida State WR Kelvin Benjamin will be selected between the No. 12 and 20 picks, according to one NFL scout.

"He really came on the scene this year. He can extend to make a lot of grabs. His route-running is raw," the scout added.

NFL Media analyst Charles Davis:

"Mike Evans and Kelvin Benjamin are, in a lot of ways, the same guy," Davis told 93.7 The Fan.

NFL Films' Greg Cosell prefers Florida State WR Kelvin Benjamin to Texas A&M's Mike Evans.

"I thought that he had a little more natural quickness and athleticism than Evans," Cosell said. "I thought that Benjamin brought a lot of the same attributes to the table as Evans, but I thought he was just a little more athletic." Cosell believes Benjamin runs faster than his 40 time.

"You want to see a burst when the ball is in the air," Cosell said, mentioning Jerry Rice as one example of a WR who ran a 4.6-second 40-yard dash in shorts but appeared far faster once donned in pads.

ESPN's Kevin Weidl called Florida State WR Kelvin Benjamin's tape against Florida "absolutely dominant."

"Showcased his entire skill set," Weidl wrote. "He's a power forward in pads."

Benjamin lit up the Gators' defense for 212 yards and three touchdowns on nine catches

Florida's pass D last season:

#2 in NCAA, #1 in SEC - fewest passing TDs allowed

#5 in NCAA, #1 in SEC - lowest comp pct allowed

#7 in NCAA, #1 in SEC - fewest passing ypg allowed

#8 in NCAA, #1 in SEC - pass efficiency D

When watching Benjamin's game tape I felt the best WR on the field wasn't him but Rashad Greene.

It's funny that people knock Benjamin for maybe skipping a private workout but the big story right now is how all these private workouts are really tiring out these prospects. Just something to chew on.

Yep, that's my exact concern. Calvin Johnson is essentially the same size. He's listed at 236, but it wouldn't surprise me a bit if he's 240+. But again, he's a freak.

When you look at KB's measurements and times, they scream elite NFL TE. They don't scream WR.

The same can be said for olsen. Hes more a wr than a te. But the fact of the matter is the kid is a football player a weapon who cant be defined by a simple position. Yoy can play him te or wr and he wins. That's a valuable asset this day and age.

fun fact:

Kelvin was #3 in the NCAA in TD catches with 15 last year behind Adams and Cooks (who had 1 more). Kelvin ended the year with a TD catch in six consecutive games

    • Yeah really dumb idea. Star players will be getting thrown out for incidental contact that the ref "misunderstands" as a helmet shot. The solution isn't adding more rules or "being stricter" so to say but enforcing the rules that are already established down the middle. Our games are evidence enough that the refs suck but damn I got tired watching other teams play and see the game decided on either bullshit flags or lack of flags. If anybody needs to be punished more it isn't the players but these POS refs the league can't get their heads noses out of the asses of. Always an excuse or some convoluted reason why the refs were right. I actually heard the announcers calling it out tons of these obvious blown calls and yet still the league stands behind the refs like idiots.
    • First I got to say, damn, people trying to instantly make us the most hated team in the league, even over the Patriots aren't they lol. With all the hate Cam already gets then add Kap even if briefly, oh lord I'd hate to picture it. Yeah that first play is what stands out to me the most. I'd expect even a rookie QB to make that read and throw the ball instead of handing it off. That drive ended up in a safety where as if he throws it to Torrey Smith it is easily a 1st down and possibly a TD as he only has to beat one man. I don't even see Kap look around any in that clip so even more so it feels like he gave it away that it was a run play and the Rams read it like a book. I don't feel like we need him nor do I feel like he is better than what we have. As for his protest, I didn't like what he was doing when he was kneeling but hey he had the right to do it. I personally think him putting his money where his mouth was, was a better way than just kneeling and I commend him for doing so. To be honest the 49'ers have said they would welcome him back. Let's not forget he would still be with them had he not voided his own contract. Somebody will sign him though I just don't see it as a starter which is what he clearly wanted to try and be by voiding with the 49'ers.
    • I feel like this is some kind of guilty admission lol and you should feel bad for voting for that Lunatic / traitor president of ours.    But guess what, you will get a chance to redeem yourself in 2020 with more information about the disgraced president  coming out every week.
