1st Round – Kelvin Benjamin, FSU
If he waited until next year, Kelvin Benjamin could very well be a top-10 selection. The sophomore had a spectacular year with James Winston and the Seminoles, tying the FSU record 15 touchdowns, including one with 13-seconds left to help win the National Title.
Physically, the guy is outmatched. 6’5, 240 lbs, 34 7/8″ arms, and 10 1/4″ hands. He needs some time to develop, but there’s no question that he’s a special player. As of now, Sammy Watkins and Mike Evans are ranked ahead of him. Should that stay the same, Benjamin could be around for the Cowboys at 16, and he may very well be worth the controversy of spending the first round draft pick on a lesser need.
