He is a solid, durable, and unexciting back. He isn't even as good as Steven Jackson. Yet all of these "experts" had him going #2 to Miami. It is not going to happen. I think he is a lock to fall to the middle of the first and probably lower.
There is no compelling reason to take the guy any higher.
I saw a couple games with Benson and the most notable one was when Texas played Oklahoma and he looked like a 4th round pick compared to Peterson from Oklahoma.
To me I think he is more hype then Potential... but I hope he goes top 5 anyway pushing a better player down to us......
