Panthers selected Florida State WR Kelvin Benjamin with the No. 28 overall pick in the 2014 NFL draft.
Benjamin (6-foot-5, 240) burst onto the scene as a redshirt sophomore, catching 54 passes for 1,011 yards (18.7 YPR) and 15 TDs from Heisman winner Jameis Winston. He generated Alshon Jeffery comparisons for his high-pointing ability, but dropped too many passes, and NFL teams informed him during the draft process that they want Benjamin closer to 225 pounds. He weighed 242 at the Noles' Pro Day. It's also worth noting that Benjamin will be 23 1/2 when his rookie season starts, so he's older than typical underclassmen. He's a boom-or-bust prospect, but should at worst make a red-zone impact with his size and freakish 35-inch arms. Benjamin will have every opportunity to earn an every-down role in Carolina's depleted wideout corps. Thu, May 8, 2014 11:24:00 PM
