Scouting Report: Strengths
  • Flashes some physicality as a hitter.
  • Bennett tracks the ball well and does a nice job of getting his head around in plenty of time to avoid flags.
  • Explodes out of his backpedal and has the hands and coordination to force interceptions.
  • Should excel as a zone defender because of his closing speed to wrap receivers after the catch.
  • Has quick feet and excellent change-of-direction ability, capable of mirroring quickness underneath.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • Has tense ankles and hips with choppy footwork when attempting to redirect and doesn't always look natural changing directions.
  • Feet aren’t ideal, as Bennett gets sloppy in his backpedal and can be sluggish when transitioning to close on the ball.
  • Feet aren’t ideal, as he gets sloppy in his backpedal and can be sluggish when transitioning to close on the ball.
  • Inconsistent getting off of blocks. Can be a step slow to react when a quarterback comes back to his side of the field late in progression.
