The Carolina Panthers used the 28th overall pick of the 2014 NFL Draft to select wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin. For the most part, people liked the pick, including Las Vegas sportsbook Bovada, which gave Cam Newton’s new toy the fourth best odds to win Offensive Rookie of the Year this upcoming season. Still though, we haven’t seen him on the field with the Panthers — until now.
A lot of times you can tell pretty quickly if a player can work out in the NFL once they get on the practice field. Some look lost and it’s pretty obvious. In other cases, you can instantly know that a player is going to have great success in the league. With that being the case, here’s some very positive news indicating that Benjamin is the latter.
