University of Illinois wide receiver Arrelious Benn took an official visit to the Patriots facilities this week. Benn is a possession receiver with a big-frame, ideal for a #2 WR in the NFL.
Benn had a disappointing senior season under Ron Zook at Illinois, due in part to poor quarterbacking and a poor system. Some of the blame has to fall on Benn’s shoulders though, with lackluster route running and concentration issues hindering his performance.
Benn is a very intriguing NFL Draft prospect, with grades ranging from the 1st-Round to the 3rd. Look for some team, maybe the Patriots, to take a chance on him Friday night of the draft.
