Default Is Cedric Benson worth a 1st round pick?

My opinion . . . NO!

He just doesn't impress me as someone who has the tools to succeed at the NFL level. He doesn't have anything that stands out as far being able to get separation or break tackles. It appears that he's only successful running behind a blue-chip offensive line in the Longhorns scheme.

But somehow, I just get the feeling the NFL scouts are asking, "where's that explosive burst off the line, and where is that great open field speed?"

He doesn't even display those qualities in college. In the NFL, it's a lot faster.

Can you say, "Jonathan Wells"?
