At 6'6" 240lbs I think he really should be considered a TE anyways.

You said the same thing about Alshon Jeffery.

This is a pretty good WR class.  I think almost any analyst would put Benjamin behind Watkins, Evans, and Lee at the very least.  I think I'd have Jordan Matthews ahead of him as well.  Obviously, the combine will be very important for him.


Did I really? I don't remember that. Alshon was only big because he was fat. Once he got in great shape for the combine, he was 216lbs. He never had the frame to be a TE.

Kelvin looks very ripped though. Almost skinny. If he is truly almost 240lbs as listed....then I think he has an entirely different frame. I'm not saying he couldn't be a great WR at the next level. He could be the next Megatron for all I know. I'm just saying with his frame, skillset, and nastiness...he might stand a better chance of being a top 5 TE in the NFL than he does a top 5 WR.

I guess a lot will depend on the combine. If he shows up 225lbs and runs in the 4.4s or less...then he'll certainly go as a WR. If he shows up at 240lbs and run in the 4.5-4.6 range...then I think he'll be looked at as a TE. Or at least he should.

I think there's a difference between saying that he should go back and that he's stupid for not going back. A raw product like him could certainly benefit from another year at FSU, but that doesn't mean he's stupid for leaving. He's going to be a 1st round draft pick. He could improve his stock from late 1st to early 1st, but he could also hurt himself, miss a big chunk of the season, and wind up a middle round pick. With the current CBA, taking that risk to improve your stock by 5-10 picks isn't as lucrative as it used to be.
