Jaws impressed by Kelvin Benjamin

By Andy Jasner

ESPN's Ron Jaworski watches a plethora of film.

In the time Jaworski has studied Florida State wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin, the NFL analyst has come away quite impressed.

ESPN's Mel Kiper Jr. even has the Philadelphia Eagles selecting Benjamin with the No. 22 overall pick in the latest mock 4.0 draft .

"When DeSean [Jackson] left the Eagles I think it was the first thought in everyone's mind -- it's going to be [Brandin] Cooks out of Oregon State -- he's going to be the guy," Jaworski said on Comcast SportsNet's "Philly Sports Talk." "But the guy who has impressed me the more I've studied is Benjamin out of Florida State. He reminds me a lot of a guy I threw to -- Harold Carmichael."

Jaworski, a former Eagles quarterback, continued to gush about Benjamin.

"He has great body control, which is what you look for in a wide receiver," Jaworski said. "He's savvy and he can settle into the voids. The more I watch him the more he's grown on me. He can high-point the football -- he's 6-foot-6 and he goes up and takes the football away. As a quarterback, you love this great big radius to throw to."

Benjamin had 54 catches for 1,011 yards receiving and 15 touchdowns for the national champion Seminoles last season.
