Ravens' draft prospect: Kelvin Benjamin

With 29 days until the NFL draft begins, here is a potential draft prospect for the Baltimore Ravens:

KELVIN BENJAMIN

Position: Wide receiver

School: Florida State

Height/weight: 6-5, 240

Round projection: Late first-round pick

File this away: Benjamin caught 15 touchdown passes, which tied a Florida State single-season record.

Good: His size makes him a physical mismatch for defenders. Benjamin has the athleticism to make leaping grabs and the strength to break tackles after the catch. He has the confidence and competitiveness needed to be a big-play NFL receiver.

Bad: Benjamin doesn't have elite speed, causing some to wonder whether he's more of a hybrid tight end. He had a good number of drops last season, so concentration is a question mark. His route-running has to improve at the next level.

Bottom line: The Ravens brought in Benjamin for a pre-draft visit, so there is interest in him. He has the potential to be a No. 1 receiver in the league, but he's still a little too raw for the Ravens to take him at No. 17. Benjamin could be in play for the Ravens if they trade down in the first round.
