I think he is the truth...Maclin...Heyward-Bey...Crabtree and Harvin are eligible for the draft this year and get all the hype...I think this dude will be better than all them...what do you all think??

I was laughing so hard when I heard that. But Regis Benn is the truth so disappointed when he didn't choose FSU and instead went to Illinois.

One of the most physical WRs I have ever seen. Top 15 lock barring a leg amputee.

If you saw the Penn State game you saw all you needed to really see. He is really big, physical, fast, and a huge YAC guy.

His first TD catch against PSU was absolutely incredible. When the play was live it looked like he was 5 feet out of bounds, but he somehow got both his feet down.

& On his second TD reception he dragged a defender 5 yards and finished in the endzone..

Potential first rounder down the line. He reminds me a lot of Anquan Boldin.

Yes that's exactly what I was thinking. I love Benn, it's unfortunate he has such inconsistent QB play, but so did Calvin Johnson and so many other wideouts. I'm still sour though that he didn't go to Maryland, Benn and DHB would be rediculous. You could put Reggie Ball with them and he'd throw for 4,000.

Has more pure speed than Boldin though, this dude reminds me of TO. The physicality, and ridiculous catches.

Haven't seen much of him other than the PSU games and he's a beast, can't wait to see what he can do in the NFL.

Looking at potential '10 wideouts

Michael Crabtree
Jeremy Maclin
Darrius Heyward-Bey
Arrelious Benn
Percy Harvin

Of course the other 4 can go this year

Very good comparison! I'd say he is the top WR prospect for 2010.

I think Benn will be a very good prospect down the line but at the moment there is at least one other WR comparable to him. Oklahoma State's Dez Bryant. Bryant might not be the fastest guy, but he's so physical, attacks the ball really well and can pile up the yards after the catch. I'm sure other receivers will emerge to compete with Benn for the top WR spot among true sophs.

I haven't seen too much of him, but what I have seen I like, and i like it a lot. He went on a rampage against PSU's defenders in last years game for a TD, and had another powerful run for the TD this weekend. He also had that b-e-a-utiful grab that was already said, but I actually thought he had it when I saw it live. He showed such great body control on that catch. His body looked like it was at a 20 degree angle from the ground as he caught it and he got both feet in bounds. I didn't see much of him in the Missouri game thoguh, but the other receivers for Illinois had big plays, perhaps Benn was getting a lot of attention and that resulted in the opportunities for the other WRs. He already has the body and the physical tools, and he could be a terror in the NFL as long as he keeps his head on straight. I haven't heard of any problems with him in that respect though. It was wierd for me, last week, I was thinking last week that there really haven't been any great WR prospects (I was also thinking the same about DEs) except for Calvin Johnson in recent years. But with Benn doing what he is, and Julio Jones really doing well for a freshman that trend may end in a year or two.

Let's see, 2008 season stats:

Arrelious Benn: 19 catches, 260 yards, 2 touchdowns
Jeremy Maclin: 26 catches, 361 yards, 4 touchdowns
Michael Crabtree: 29 receptions, 457 yards, 6 touchdowns
Percy Harvin: 16 receptions, 247 yards, 2 touchdowns

I see no case for him being better than any of them. The stats don't prove it.

Michael Crabtree(Graham Harrell): 29 receptions, 457 yards, 6 touchdowns
Percy Harvin(Tim Tebow): 16 receptions, 247 yards, 2 touchdowns

I see no case for him being better than any of them. The stats don't prove it.

don't bring stats into this conversation becuase Benn plays in a much different offense than the others

Stats cannot tell the whole story. I don't like making excuses for WRs, but look at the quarterbacks of those guys. Three of them have Heisman trophy candidates tossing them the ball, while Benn has Juice Williams and his career 50% completion percentage.

Stats usually don't prove much of anything when figuring out how good a player is. As said before, he has the worse QB of the 4 guys and Maclin and Crabtree are in systems that inflate their numbers to an extent, though both Maclin and Crabtree are great WRs. But put Benn in either of those offenses with those QBs, the stats should be similar. There are plenty of other factors that affect this as well, stats aren't the end-all-be-all.

Arrelious Benn is an NFL ready WR right now. I like the Andre Johnson/Anquan Boldin predictions. He's a very physical WR who gets a ton of YAC, has very good speed, and is a game breaker. Plus he loves to block in the run game.

I love Juice, but if Benn had a more consistent QB he'd be putting up some huge numbers. Top 15 lock for next year, possibly higher. He's a carbon copy of those two players though and that's scary.

Last four:

Penn State - 4 receptions, 110 yards, 2 TDs
Michigan - 6 receptions, 122 yards
Minnesota - 12 receptions, 181 yards
Indiana - 7 receptions, 130 yards, 1 TD

2008 stats:

Jeremy Maclin - 47 receptions, 666 yards, 6 TD (1 rushing), 14.1 per reception
Arrelious Benn - 44 receptions, 693 yards, 5 TD(2 rushing), 15.8 per reception

Benn is the best yards after contact receiver I have seen in a long time..

The catch I, and a few others were talking about:

Beast mode would probably be the best way to describe him. My family is a big Illinois house so Ive watched him for the better part of every Saturday and hes just a monster out there. You dont see him drop a ton of passes, attacks the ball and the opposing players, and can return kicks.

I'll get blasted for this but Benn reminds me the most of Eric Moulds. He's a big physical WR who can block on the outside and be a strong redzone threat.

Much props for the Eric Moulds comparison. If Benn can develop the route running ability that Moulds did, I think the sky is the limit.

I think Damaryius Thomas needs to be put into the conversation with Benn and Bryant for the top junior WR next year.

I also like Terrance Tolliver of LSU to emerge as well, but I think I am the only one who likes him.

BeerBaron
12-05-2008, 07:21 PM
does he really only have 5 career TD's or did I read that wrong?

I mean...that alone isn't bad, he's a 1000+ yard guy and whatnot, but I'd figure for how great he is, he'd find the endzone a little more often...

I also love Demaryius Thomas and think he may even declare this year as a RS Soph. I'd like to think he realizes his stock will never get better in the triple option and he'd develop more as a 3rd round rookie WR than as the leading WR on a team that runs 45 times a game

I am not sure about the career TD mark, but I know there is not many.

Illinois offense is the run option and almost all the redzone stuff is Juice or the RB getting carries. It's pretty awful.

Arrelious Benn is the man, and the best receiver eligible for the '10 class.

1. Arrelious Benn
2. Dez Bryant
3. Damien Williams

Right now, I think any of those three can make a good #1 in the pros.

Yup Denaryius it's so hard to get a read on him because no wideout will ever succeed at Georgia Tech again as long as Paul Johnson is coach and they run the option.
