 Overview

  Bentley gained attention at Florida's Pahokee High, which won three state championships with the help of Bentley and teammate Janoris Jenkins (North Alabama, fourth-ranked cornerback in this draft).

Bentley is quick, confident and courageous, but may need to add a little beef to hold up in the NFL. He shows natural coverage skills, and his aggressiveness was on display in abundance during Senior Bowl practices where he looked good against bigger receivers. He confirmed he has the speed to play at the next level with an unofficial 40-yard time of 4.43 at the Scouting Combine. However, his 31.5-inch vertical jump was disappointing because at his height he will need all the hops he can get against big NFL receivers.

His career stats included 232 total tackles, 13 for a loss, 1.5 sacks, seven interceptions and 20 passes broken up.

 Draft Scout Player News
09/11/14 - CB Bill Bentley (knee) was placed on injured reserve.
09/10/14 - CB Bill Bentley suffered a torn ACL in Monday's game and is out for the season. With Bentley out, the Lions will turn to fourth-round pick Nevin Lawson, but they'll surely search for another cornerback this week.
09/08/14 - CB Bill Bentley sustained what could be a significant knee injury. Bentley, a second-stringer behind Rashean Mathis, was carted off during the first half. It is feared that Bentley tore his anterior cruciate ligament, though coach Jim Caldwell would not confirm that. With the Lions' secondary being their biggest weakness, the loss of Bentley will force rookie Nevin Lawson into the rotation. Lawson played well as the nickel back.
12/26/13 - --CB Bill Bentley (concussion) has not been cleared to practice.
12/25/13 - --CB Bill Bentley (concussion) did not practice Wednesday.
