ESPN's David Newton was asked which rookies are standing out at Panthers OTAs: "You have to start with first-round pick Kelvin Benjamin. The former Florida State wide receiver keeps making impressive catches. That he and quarterback Cam Newton have made an effort to spend time together on and off the field also is impressive."
Kelvin Benjamin figures to play right away for the Panthers even though he’s something of a project. At 6’5”, he should be a factor in the red zone at least. We'll be waiting for word about how his route running is progressing as the offseason wears on.
