Scouting Report: Strengths
  • Flashes some physicality as a hitter.
  • Made Bruce Feldman's Freak's List - ranked #60. He wrote, "The 5-11, 195-pound Bennett goes against elite receivers every day at practice, and that competitiveness carries over to training, where he and Rakim Jarrett go back and forth over who can jump the highest and run the fastest. Bennett is proud to say he’s got his buddy with a 42-inch vertical. He claims to be the fastest on the team with a 22.9 mph on the GPS, although Jarrett said he matched that in late July."
  • 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.

*Percentile Ranking in Player's Position Group (NFL Combine Historical Data): This percentile reflects how a player's specific statistics rank in comparison to historical performances at the NFL Combine, specifically within their position group. A higher percentile indicates a better performance. For instance, being in the 90th percentile for a particular stat means the player outperformed 90% of their peers in that category.

*Similarity Percentage: This percentage is calculated based on a comprehensive analysis of various factors, including height, weight, 40-yard dash times, on-field performance statistics, and overall player rating. The analysis is conducted against our database of draft prospects from 2021 to 2023. This similarity score helps in evaluating how closely a current prospect aligns with past prospects. It is important to note, however, that this score reflects similarities based on college production and attributes, and does not account for eventual success or performance in the NFL.
