Bennett had a great freshman season, hauling in 79 passes for 876 yards and nine touchdowns, earning All SEC honors in the process. He improved those numbers as a sophomore, this time bringing down 82 passes for 1,146 yards and six touchdowns. His numbers dipped a bit as a junior, but he still caught 75 passes for 830 yards and five touchdowns.
Bennett has a sturdy frame, and plays bigger than he is. He is not afraid to cross the middle of the field, and has the toughness and strength to catch the ball while taking a hit. He displays the quickness in and out of his breaks to consistently get open, and has great hands. Bennett’s best quality is that he is a developed, all around receiver. He may be able to provide an impact right away, and has the added value of being an experienced return man.
Bennett does not possess any standout physical tool. He’s not necessarily lacking any either, but he does not have one explosive quality to carry over to the NFL.
Bennett is a solid receiver that should become a dependable receiver in the league. He may never be a true gamebreaker, but he has the talent and toughness to be a consistent starting receiver in the NFL.
