Former Illinois wide receiver Arrelious Benn doesn't agree with ESPN NFL draft analysts Mel Kiper and Todd McShay.

Benn believes he will be drafted in the first round on Thursday; Kiper and McShay don't.

"Yeah, I feel I will end up going in the first round," Benn said on Wednesday. "I have a lot of confidence in myself. I put myself in a position to do it. The team has the say so. It's out of my control. I hope for the best."
