Carolina Panthers general manager Dave Gettleman said it last year when he drafted 6-foot-5 wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin in the first round and again in May when he selected 6-4 Devin Funchess in the second round.

This brings me to the highs and lows of individual performances in Friday night’s 25-24 preseason victory over the Buffalo Bills on Friday night at Ralph Wilson Stadium:

HIGHS
WR Kelvin Benjamin -- He caught three passes for 36 yards, including a 2-yard touchdown catch, and drew a 25-yard pass interference penalty. On each of his catches and the penalty, he used his size to his advantage, particularly the touchdown where the shorter defensive back didn’t stand a chance.

WR Devin Funchess -- The rookie had two catches for 53 yards, including a 34-yarder as he tight-roped the sideline. He almost hauled in a high, long touchdown pass from Derek Anderson, but the defensive back made a good play to separate him from the football.

Fantasy Impact:

QB Cam Newton once again has some dangerous weapons around him on the outside, even though they are young. Benjamin enters his second season after an impressive rookie year and should be able to improve on his fantasy numbers. Add in TE Greg Olsen and RB Jonathan Stewart and you can see why the Panthers feel they can have one of the top offenses in the league, as we reported in a news story a few weeks ago.
