    He is really having a difficult year, but I think a lot of it has to do with poor QB/OL play by Illinios.

    He appears to be getting good separation against single coverage, but is struggling with double coverage and rolled coverage. His hands looked better last season, but with so many passes thrown behind him this year, it is hard to tell exactly what kind of hands he has.

    Depending on his character and how he runs, this guy will probably fall into the first third of the second round where we might have two shots at him.

    Does he project highly enough to warrant BB taking a flier on him, especially with the ghosts of Bethel and Chad hounding BB?

    After the Chad Jackson pick, I think BB would look for more of a "sure thing" at WR... Someone with proven hands who has produced at the college level.

    If im not mistaken, Chad Jacksons production was never that good in college which is why he slipped to the 2nd round despite having a great combine

    No.

    I don't want a WR in the 1st 2 rounds. And if I did, I'd consider Demaryius Williams and Golden Tate before Benn.
