RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

Let's start with the positives: Benjamin is only one of eight rookie receivers since the start of the millennium to post a 1,000-yard season, and he scored nine times, largely on account of his massive 6-5, 240-pound frame. He did this in a passing game that generated only 7.0 YPA (22nd) and 23 passing TDs (T-15th). Conversely, Benjamin averaged a meager 7.0 YPT (31st among the league's 41 100-target WR), had only two catches of 40-plus yards and tied for the league lead in drops with 10. Benjamin is also on the slow side (4.6 40), though he requires far less separation from opposing DBs given his size and huge catch radius. Heading into Year 2, it was reasonable to project some improvement, but alas Benjamin suffered a torn ACL in August and will miss the 2015 season.

2014

If any team needed to draft a receiver in the first round, it was the Panthers. With Steve Smith and Brandon LaFell gone, Carolina had 31-year old placeholders Jerricho Cotchery and Jason Avant atop the depth chart, but two veteran possession threats were not going to cut it on what’s presumably a contending team. Enter the 6-5, 241-pound Benjamin with the 28th overall pick. He may be on the slow side for a true No. 1 (4.6 40), and his hands and focus were questionable at times in college. But he’s a good athlete and a massive target with a huge catch radius. As long as he doesn’t underwhelm in camp, Benjamin should start out of the gate and be a frequent red-zone target.
