POSITIVES
— Great long speed. Can find that fifth gear to separate with each step.
— Very good burst and acceleration, especially downhill.
— Great strength and balance. Violent runner who uses his frame effectively.
— Vision improved over his two seasons as a starter.
— Above-average pass-catcher. Natural hands.

NEGATIVES
— Below-average hip flexibility. Can sometimes be an issue when trying to make people miss in space.
— Magnet for contact. His no-nonsense rushing style can sometimes bleed into carelessness and reckless abandon.

— Poor pass protector. Largely untested, but struggled when asked to.

Overview​

Big back who might need to table his desires to be an elusive runner and adopt a more physical, decisive approach as a pro. Benson had just two seasons of collegiate wear and tear, but he only hit the 20-carry mark in one game. He runs with good knee-bend, agility and contact balance but takes too long to process the front and hit holes between the tackles. He has creative athleticism but lacks creative vision, so he would be wise to keep more runs on track and finish with consistent authority rather than searching for greener grass. Benson has some talent as a pass catcher and enough protection ability to warrant a role as a complementary three-down option.

Strengths​

  • Exceptional size with a body type made for NFL workload.
  • Above-average bend and lateral-cut agility for a big back.
  • Lowers pads and balances through contact to stay up and running.
  • Slides, dips and cuts to find smaller openings that are developing.
  • Capable receiver on wheels, screens and underneath routes.

Weaknesses​

  • Leaves yards on the field due to bouts of indecisiveness.
  • Too many wasted steps in getting to where he needs to go.
  • Lacks vision and burst to scare defenses with big-play potential.
  • Needs to improve at setting up would-be tacklers into blockers.
  • Physical tools for pass protection but needs better recognition and positioning.

Love Conner physical running style but our RB group needed a jolt of speed desperately
