Florida State Seminoles’ wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin is one of the 2014 NFL draft’s more intriguing prospects.
At 6’5 and and 234 pounds, Benjamin obviously has fantastic size.
As a redshirt sophomore last season, Benjamin was fantastic. He had 1,011 yards and 15 touchdowns on just 54 catches. Of course, the most important of those receptions came on the final play of his career when he caught the game-winning touchdown pass from Heisman Trophy winning quarterback Jameis Winston to lead the Seminoles to a 34-31 victory over the Auburn Tigers in the BCS National Championship Game.
Benjamin, however, hasn’t always been consistent. He was even forced to redshirt during his first year in Tallahassee and consistency issues plagued him throughout his career.
Of course, with the flashes he’s shown, every team has to be at least someone interested in Benjamin.
According to Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post Dispatch, the St. Louis Rams will host Benjamin tomorrow.

The Rams certainly have a need at the position, so potentially trading down or trading back into the first round to select Benjamin makes sense.
Benjamin has also drawing heavy interest from the Baltimore Ravens, New York Jets and New England Patriots.
