Kelvin Benjamin impresses at rookie camp

ESPN - [Full Article]

Panthers WR coach Ricky Proehl on rookie Kelvin Benjamin...

"A guy his size and the way he just caught the ball ... just natural, just like a vacuum," Proehl said. "I was in awe to be honest with you."

"You look at him, if he can grow and develop into the receiver I think he can be, he's going to a huge asset for Cam [Newton]," Proehl said of Carolina's fourth-year quarterback.

Benjamin's leaping catch over the middle with two defenders all over him near the end of Saturday's rookie camp left everyone in awe.

"That's what he brings," Proehl said. "He can make great catches like that because of his size. A normal person is not going to make that catch. With his reach, he's probably 11 feet, 12 feet in the air making that catch.

"Other guys may not have an opportunity to touch the ball, let alone catch it."

Fantasy Impact: 

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 the very least.
