The Cleveland Browns have finally addressed their WR situation.
The Browns waited until the No. 100 pick in the fourth round and drafted Miami WR Travis Benjamin. One of Benjamin's biggest assets is his blazing speed. He ran a 4.36 in the 40-yard dash at the combine. From what I've read, Benjamin is also a good route runner and can get open.
The most obvious weakness for Benjamin is that he's not even a full 5'10'' and is considered very undersized. That size might also be why he lacks strength off the line and struggles in traffic. Overall, I think there's a lot of upside to Benjamin and seems to fit the mold of previous Heckert WR picks such as DeSean Jackson.
Here's his scouting report from NFL.com:
Benjamin has been a big-play threat for the Hurricanes over the years. Initially an electric return specialist only, he eventually became an effective pass-catching option. He is undersized but shows speed to get past safeties, and the route-running savvy to outwork corners and separate from them to make plays on the ball. He will be somewhat limited in his transition to the NFL due to his size, but there are many receivers of his stature that have shown the ability to overcome this at the next level. Benjamin has third- to fourth-round value due to his speed, ability to separate and experience as a returner.
What do you think of Travis Benjamin and the pick at No. 100?
