On Sirius now. Made no bones about the fact that his meetings with the Broncos went great and that he wants to go to Denver.

I really like this kid. I hope the Broncos can get him.

I love what I've seen from Benn on tape. Has all the attributes of a top shelf WR. If he's there in the 2nd he'd be hard to pass on.

Most things I've seen about him remind me of a guy like Braylon Edwards--can make some amazingly athletic plays but has only decent speed and drops what should be easy catches.

Do you think he'll last past round 2? Seems unlikely to me.

He's my second fav WR in this draft. If Denver goes LB or OG with the first rounder, I'd hope for Benn in round 2.

I want to hear a quote from any of these kids after their meetings with whatever team saying "man, my visit to _________ really sucked. That place is a dump and their coaches don't know what the hell they're doing. I really hope they don't pick me."

Most mocks I've seen have him a high to mid round 2nd.

Did they specifically ask about Denver or did he bring it up? Any other comments from him on Denver? Thanks!

Benn is a guy that I have wanted even before we traded Marsh

He brought it up. Only meeting he mentioned. Said they need a big time wideout and he felt he could fill that role.

He has been the one i have been mocking to us. We brought him in 2x for a visit and is why we will not be taking dez. We want to trade back to get graham or pounce and get another pick to trade up for tebwo and still take benn with our other 2nd.


Like clockwork I tell ya.

I think Benn goes higher than #43 or #45, so I think Denver will have to trade up if they want him. Probably would help if we traded down from #11 and then back up to select him sometime. I just don't think he is going to be there where we are sitting. Depends on when the second receiver after Dez is taken. There will be a run sometime, there always is -- and I wouldn't doubt that Benn is a top three receiver on a lot of boards, top five at the worst overall in a general census.

Ah...self promotion due to perceived need by us.

I could see him in the second for sure....

Bet he says, whoever drafts him, that he wanted to go there all along, and is very happy that he got his wish.

I think he'll be there at 43. Most draft experts have him ranked behind Tate and Decker, not sure why, but I do think he'd be there at 43.
