2014 NFL Draft Grade: Carolina Panthers Select Kelvin Benjamin, WR, Florida State


With the 28th pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, the Carolina Panthers have selected Kelvin Benjamin, WR, Florida State.

This pick is a bit of a surprise despite the Panthers’ need at WR because of their superior need at OT. There were a number of players they could’ve taken here but it’s important to focus on the guy they got.

Benjamin is a big receiver who is a red zone matchup nightmare. He’s not overly fast but he has some upside and could be a really nice pickup for Cam Newton and the Panthers.

Pick Grade: B
