Draft Profile: Bio
Coming from Greenville, MS, Benson's collegiate journey began at Oregon as a 3-star recruit. Following a severe knee injury in 2020, he transferred to Florida State in 2022, where he quickly emerged as a key player. In his sophomore year (2022), he played 12 games, rushing for 969 yards on 141 carries with 9 touchdowns, and catching 11 passes for 109 yards. His junior year (2023) saw further development, with Benson playing 13 games, accumulating 906 rushing yards on 156 attempts with 14 touchdowns, and making 20 receptions for 227 yards. His impressive performances earned him second-team All-ACC honors in both 2022 and 2023.
Scouting Report: Strengths
  • Exceptional long speed, consistently finding extra gears to outpace defenders.
  • Notable burst and acceleration, particularly effective in downhill runs.
  • Demonstrates serious strength and balance, and uses his frame to run aggressively.
  • Consistent improvement in vision, especially noticeable over his two seasons as a starter.
  • Good skills as a pass-catcher with natural receiving abilities.
  • Shows explosive downhill capabilities and lateral agility to evade defenders.
  • Exhibits improved understanding of angles and block following.
  • Has good not great hands
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • Limited hip flexibility, affecting his ability to maneuver in open spaces.
  • Often seeks contact, leading to potential overexposure to hits.
  • Needs development in pass protection, currently below average.
  • May not be as effective in more complex running routes at the NFL level.
  • Serious injury history that will need to be checked out. Benson tore his anterior cruciate ligament, medial collateral ligament, lateral meniscus, medial meniscus, and another tendon.
Scouting Report: Summary
Trey Benson from Florida State stands out as a robust, explosive running back with the essential traits of an RB1 at the next level. His 6'1", 223-pound frame complements his aggressive running style, enabling him to shrug off tackles and consistently gain extra yards. Benson's athletic prowess is not limited to power running; he also displays significant speed and agility, crucial for breaking through the line. While there are areas for improvement, notably in pass protection where his experience is minimal and his skills very unpolished.

Benson's blend of toughness, explosiveness, and ongoing refinement in his running skills positions him as a potential playmaker in the pro game. If he's utilized as a workhorse back he could be a consistent 1000 yd producer

*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.
