Eno Benjamin scouting report

Speed/Athleticism: Eno Benjamin isn’t the fastest player on the field, but he has some wheels. I’d imagine he will probably run in the 4.4 range. Benjamin has some excellent burst about his game too. Plants his foot in the ground and he can go. Great athleticism.

Contact Balance: While his contact balance isn’t great, Benjamin’s ability to fall forward is exemplary. Almost never get’s stopped for a loss, fights like hell to get back to the line of scrimmage. Often times throughout the 2019 season took contact in the backfield, and still managed to get away and create something.

Receiving Ability: Benjamin is an excellent receiver out of the backfield. Rarely drops passes. Shows good route running ability and runs them consistently. He is a threat in the passing game and it will translate very well to the NFL.

Blocking Ability: Not a great blocker. He was able to get the job done at times in college, but shows no skills that allow me to believe he would be a successful blocker in the NFL. Needs to completely be retaught the fundementals. Arizona State didn’t often give him assignments.

Field Vision/Football IQ: Excellent field vision in both space and traffic. Patient runner, will wait for the hole and burst through it.

Leadership/Personality: N/A.

Overall: It appears that much of the lack of success that Eno Benjamin saw this season was the result of a poor offensive line. He can be used as a feature back in the league, but I think he would struggle in that role. Benjamin’s best fit is as a third down back in the league that teams used as a receiver out of the backfield. He’s a late day two and early day three prospect in my book.

Instagram did not return a 200.
