PFF: Bene Best Rookie CB Through 2 Games

16 September 2014 - 01:02 PM

I take everything from PFF with a grain of salt, but according to them (on ESPN Insider - Top 10 NFL Newcomers):


5. Bené Benwikere, Carolina Panthers
If there's one thing better than a rookie performing well right out of the gate, it's a fifth-round rookie doing so. Benwikere came across my radar with an impressive run of preseason performances, but he has carried those across to the regular season. He is the best-graded rookie cornerback at PFF, and unlike Jason Verrett just below him, he has put together two consistently good games, rather than one very good one. Quarterbacks targeting Benwikere so far have a passer rating of just 56.2.


Also ranks KB 7th:


7. Kelvin Benjamin, Carolina Panthers
Like Watkins, Benjamin has been asked to step in right away and be the No. 1 receiver for the Panthers. Benjamin hasn't quite managed a 100-yard receiving game yet, but his first game saw 92 yards and a touchdown on six catches. His second game saw a few unfortunate drops but also one of the most spectacular plays of the short season, hauling in a fantastic one-handed grab down the left sideline for a significant gain.





KB's effect on the Offense

16 September 2014 - 10:10 AM

What kind of effect has Kelvin Benjamin had on the Panthers' offense? Brandon LaFell led the team in 2013 with six receptions on deep passes. In two pro games, Benjamin already has five receptions on deep balls, including two against Detroit this week. Newton through seven deep balls against the Lions, completing four of them for 87 yards.






PFT: NFL may suspend Hardy

16 September 2014 - 08:48 AM

Previously, the NFL had decided not to penalize Hardy because Hardy’s legal case has not been resolved. He still hasn’t had a trial before a jury; his trial before a judge was under North Carolina criminal procedure was so preliminary and cursory that a transcript isn’t prepared unless the defendant chooses to hire a court reporter. (In this case, Hardy did.)





If I had to guess, I think the NFLPA will intervene if he is suspended without pay. They'll argue that nothing has changed with the facts of the case or Hardy's legal status, so why suspend him now instead of months ago? And I think they have a case honestly. 
Sucks for the team, they'll have to deactivate him but still pay him $770k per game.



I know this will be moved...but
