Couldn't agree more. Allen Robinson will be a stud. I don't care what his measurements or his 40 time are, this guy just gets open on every single play.

Rashad Greene isn't the best athlete on FSU's offense, but he is the best football player. And he fits the slot WR mold in the NFL perfectly.

I do too. If Greene were coming out I would be a proponent of his at #33, obviously depending on who's there. I don't see him slipping to 3rd or 4th round. Although he dropped a pass in Nc game, he has good hands. He is consistent, always a factor in games and he's been good for years now. I think he'll be a 1st round pick next year barring injury. He has elite speed and explosiveness. He can go long or turn a short pass into a long gain. He is only lacking elite size basically.

Ten years ago he is a third round pick. In today's NFL he is a first rounder. Put him in the slot and he will get you a first down every time the defense tries to blitz your QB.

I liken Benjamin to Alshon Jeffery, natural receiving skills, big catching radius, has power & some quickness to make people miss. They posses prototypical NFL size for position & Kelvin Benjamin is even bigger edition. I don't see how that doesn't translate to a first round grade & if there #33 has to be in bpa discussion.

Of course this is an educated guess. You never know what they know that we don't.

I meant Greene.

I think Benjamin is off the board in the top 30, no question.

I get a very Stephen Hill vibe from this guy. Remember when everyone was mocking him to the Texans, and we went with Mercilus instead? Hell, even I think I mocked him to us once.

He's probably closer to Demaryius Thomas than Stephen Hill. Not quite the prospect Thomas was but somewhat close. I never liked Hill and I remember being dogged around here quite frequently for suggesting that Alshon Jeffery and Rueben Randle would be better pros. Both guys were drafted after Hill and have been better players, btw.

Default Re: Kelvin Benjamin

We simply have too many needs to throw a high draft pick at a WR. With our cap situation we need to address as much NEED as possible in the draft.

Although I love size and speed, it's there late (hopefully where we're drafting) in the first round every single year.

In "another Texans message board" 2 years ago I was banging the table for Alshon Jeffrey. Last year C Patterson.

Nuk isn't the future Dre replacement to me. He is a great complementary piece. We still need that replacement, but hopefully we can wait one more year.

You can rightly say what you want about his QBs but this dude can't run routes or get open to save his life.

I don't think he's gonna make a lot of noise his rookie year, but in 3 years I believe. He's just too big. And 4.5 speed for a guy of that size can only be held down for so long. Regardless of how raw he is.

Is coming out, what are your thoughts, draft grade? Maybe with WR depth Texans should take WR per bpa somewhere in this years draft...
He is impressive, that is for sure. Right now I see him as a late 1, early 2. People will think of megatron when they see this guy during the combine, although there is just something missing from Benjamin which keeps him from being a top 10 draft prospect.

I tend to think that our WR core is pretty talented. Maybe a late round guy to come in and compete.

AJ/Hopkins/Martin/Posey/Bonner and some other young guys.

Default Re: Kelvin Benjamin

just saw this, how ironic- Carolina Panthers
wide-receiver-kelvin-benjamin-of-the-florida-state
Draft Position: 29

Dream Fit: Kelvin Benjamin, WR, Florida State

The Carolina Panthers must continue to surround Cam Newton with weapons. After a year in which Carolina boasted one of the best defenses in the NFL, it is time to shore up the offense. With Steve Smith in the twilight of his career and the emergence Brandon LaFell, the Panthers would do well to bolster the wide receiver corps.

Benjamin fits the bill perfectly here. His huge 6'5" frame would be a welcomed target for Newton. His big-play ability would also ease the burden of losing Smith once he decides to retire.

With other receivers such as Sammy Watkins and Mike Evans looking to go off the board early in the draft, Benjamin becomes the best fit for the Panthers at 29th overall.
