    Kelvin Benjamin | Wide Receiver
    Team: Florida State Seminoles
    Age / DOB: (22) / 2/5/1991
    Ht / Wt: 6'5' / 234

    Florida State redshirt sophomore WR Kelvin Benjamin was ranked by's Daniel Jeremiah as the player who improved his stock the most this past weekend.
    Benjamin caught nine passes for 212 yards and three touchdowns in Saturday's 37-7 demolition of Florida. "His combination of size and athleticism is rare, but I was most impressed with his ball skills on Saturday," Jeremiah wrote. "He made several impressive adjustments to corral the deep ball." Although Benjamin is criminally under-discussed, we think there is a good chance he bolts for the draft after this season. Benjamin, who turns 23 in February, dominates at the catch point, a vital skill at the next level. Dec 2 - 9:58 PM

    Interesting prospect in the late 2nd or 3rd round.. IDK if he will be able to get much separation at the next level.. Always could use a guy that can go up and get the ball and he can do that for sure.

    This dude is a beast, I'm sure as a redshirt sophomore he won't be in this draft but I would love to have that guy next year. Love what Twill has done but I want an Alshon Jeffrey.

    Dude is a monster. I would be surprised if he doesn't become a force on Sundays.

    [​IMG] Kelvin Benjamin, WR, Florida State
    After a rough start with a couple of drops, Benjamin took over to dominate Florida; he owned cornerback Loucheiz Purifoy. Jameis Winston hit Benjamin on a short slant, and the big wide out broke a couple of tackles to run down the field and into the end zone for a 45-yard score. Benjamin later burned Purifoy on an out and up route to get wide open for a 29-yard touchdown. In the third quarter, Winston laid out a bomb for Benjamin as he beat Purifoy on a deep post for a 56-yard completion. Benjamin then made an impressive adjustment to make a four-yard touchdown catch. Against Florida, he totaled nine receptions for 212 yards with three touchdowns.

    In 2013, Benjamin has 45 receptions for 838 yards with 12 touchdowns. Many believe the redshirt sophomore will enter the 2014 NFL Draft. Benjamin dropped three passes - one a definite touchdown - against the Gators, but he made some phenomenal catches that illustrate a great skill set. Benjamin (6-5, 234) has a rare combination of size and speed. This performance will definitely help him to be an early-round pick.

    Would love to have this kid but Dallas have other critical positions to address before the Cowboys draft a WR or QB.

    Kelvin Benjamin - WR - Seminoles
    Duke coach David Cutcliffe called Florida State redshirt sophomore WR Kelvin Benjamin "a monster."

    "They're all good," Cutcliffe said of FSU's receivers. "They've got size and speed. They've got quickness. All of them catch the ball extremely well." Of all the matchup problems on the outside facing the Blue Devils against the Semionoles in Saturday's ACC championship, Cutcliffe is particularly concerned about Benjamin. "We don't have anybody that can line up and match up physically with Benjamin," he said. "He's just a monster, and with great skills." Benjamin has seven TD catches in his past four games. We expect him to declare for May's draft.

    Benjamin dominated again today against Duke (I know, it's Duke). But they're having the best season in their program's history and were ranked #20. He's just a man amongst boys in college with that size and athleticism. He needs to be in the NFL already (preferably wearing a star on his helmet).

    Florida State redshirt sophomore WR Kelvin Benjamin caught five passes for 119 yards and two touchdowns.

    Our own Josh Norris ranks Benjamin as the No. 30 overall prospect in the class, and he showed why in this game. Few are better at the catch point than Benjamin, who turns 23 in February. However, don't overlook his strength to pick up yards after the catch.
