2014 NFL Draft: Panthers Come to the Podium at 28, Pick Kelvin Benjamin
Benjamin is a big bodied receiver who may be overvalued here in the late first round. His technique isn't great, and he still has a ton of work to do. Benjamin did fit in here at the end of the first, and so the quality fits, I suppose. He is just so big that he outmuscled most smaller DBs in college, but he will be playing up against a higher class of player now, and as raw as he is (one year of college production), he may take some time to develop. I don't see a true starter from day one, and if you aren't going to start right away, why blow a first rounder here? It's just too early to tell how much impact he will have.
