12/09/13 - 2014 NFL DRAFT: WEEK 15 STOCK REPORT, NFL PROSPECTS WHO HELPED THEMSELVES: WR Kelvin Benjamin, Florida State...After a modest sophomore season, Benjamin has had a breakout junior campaign, but the last two performances have stood out as he's combined for 14 catches for 331 yards and five touchdowns. In the ACC Championship Game vs. Duke, Benjamin recorded his third career 100-yard receiving game and led the Seminoles' offense with a pair of touchdowns.
He has near-tight end size (6-5, 235) with a ridiculously large wingspan, giving him a catching radius that is probably on-par with anyone at the NFL level. Benjamin is still developing as a route runner, but he shows the gliding speed and short-area quickness to create some separation and be a terror in jump ball situations, especially in the red zone. With the NFL featuring a number of big, long athletes at receiver, Benjamin fits what pro teams are looking for right now. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
12/08/13 - Seminoles open as seven-point favorite...Even though the BCS Championship matchup has not been announced, Florida State opened as a seven-point favorite over Auburn by the Las Vegas Hilton on Sunday. Florida State (13-0) and Auburn (12-1) are the top-ranked teams in both major polls and are expected to be announced as the championship game opponents. The official announcement comes Sunday night.
The Seminoles, No. 1 in the BCS Standings last week, won the ACC title Saturday with a victory over Duke. The Tigers were third in the BCS but beat Missouri for the SEC title and No. 2 Ohio State lost the Big Ten championship to Michigan State. While Florida State opened as favored by a touchdown, Pregame.com reported that one offshore oddsmaker moved the line to 9.5 and others at 8- and 8.5-point spreads. - The Sports Xchange
12/04/13 - 2013 ALL-ACC THIRD TEAM (MEDIA): WR Kelvin Benjamin, Florida State, 6-5, 238. So.-R, Belle Glade, Fla. (68)...Has been selected Third Team All-ACC for the 2013 college football season by the Atlantic Coast Sports Media Association (ACSMA). - Florida State football
12/02/13 - WEEK 14 ACC RECEIVER OF THE WEEK: Kelvin Benjamin, Florida State, R-So.., WR, 6-5, 238, Belle Glade, Fla.,...Benjamin became the first Seminole in 10 years to tally 200 yards receiving in a game and single handedly outgained the Gators’ entire offense in Saturday’s 37-7 win at Florida. Benjamin’s 212 receiving yards are the most in a game in the ACC in 2013, and the three touchdown receptions tied the ACC high for the season.
Benjamin’s first touchdown put FSU ahead 10-0 in the second quarter when he broke three tackles en route to a 45-yard score. The Gators entered the game with the nation’s No. 3 pass defense, allowing just 157.7 per game, and had given up only five passing touchdowns all season, but were unable to slow down Benjamin, who had 108 yards and two scores before halftime. - ACC football
12/01/13 - Jameis Winston threw three touchdown passes to Kelvin Benjamin, and Florida State moved a step closer to playing for the national championship. The Seminoles improved to 12-0 for the first time since 1999 and likely will earn a spot in the Bowl Championship Series title game by beating Duke in the Atlantic Coast Conference championship game next Saturday.
Florida, meanwhile, ended its worst season since 1979. The Gators (4-8) lost their final seven games and missed a bowl for the first time since 1990. Florida's bowl streak had been the second-longest in the country, behind Florida State. The Seminoles were four-touchdown favorites in this lopsided matchup - that lived up to advance billing. - AP Sports
