Not bad.

I think Benn still has potential. Likely better than pretty much anything they would find in the later rounds.

At 6'2 he can add some size to the Eagles WR corp. He is only 24 and can certainly get better.

Really? A guy who couldn't even beat out Tiquan Flattop for the #3 spot in Tampa had trade value?

Low risk/very high reward. Was showing some real promise his first two years until falling deep into the Bucs depth chart. Fresh start could be just what he needs.

Remember when Benn was the greatest WR prospect of all time on these forums? Laughing

By a certain poster who reffered to himself in the third person? I remember.

Not a bad pickup for us, I assume he would be a good blocker being a former center, and Kelly wants WR to block, which our current crop of receivers don't do. Worth the risk IMO.

Mostly because he was a former 2nd rounder. There's always a chance someone like that turns it around.

Especially a former 2nd round pick that doesn't turn 25 until September that has also shown flashes in the past. Worth a risk.

It's Mark Dominik. Guy is an animal!

Didn't Anquan just get traded for a late 6th?
