Player Spotlight: Kelvin Benjamin

A detailed look at Kelvin Benjamin's fantasy prospects for 2016

As an Athlete

We know that Benjamin is a mountain of a man, measuring at 6’5” and 240 pounds at his 2014 combine. He boasted huge, 10 1/4" hands and long, 34 7/8" arms, sporting a catch radius like few prospects in recent memory. These are all sexy figures in the draftnik community, of course, but they don’t paint much of a picture of a prospect’s athleticism. Speed testing (dashes, like the 40-yard) and explosion testing (vertical and broad jumps) are iffy measures at best when applied on their own. Therefore, I always make it a point to evaluate a prospect’s general explosiveness – the correlation of his timed speed and jumping ability – to develop an athletic profile.

Since great receivers come in different shapes and sizes, of course, we have to adjust those numbers for height and weight. I can’t in good conscience compare Benjamin’s speed or height to Corey Coleman’s. So, to examine just how athletic Benjamin tested, I compared his combine workouts to the 12 other wideouts since 1999 who met the following criteria:

  1. Measured at 6’3” or above
  2. Weighed in at 230 pounds or above
  3. Participated in the 40-yard dash, vertical jump, and broad jump at his combine[1]
How did Benjamin stack up?
