04/30/2012 - A closer look at the Browns' drafts: Round 4/100 - Travis Benjamin, WR, 5-10, 172, Miami...Benjamin is a speedster who can return punts and kicks. He caught 41 passes for 609 yards and three touchdowns last year. COULD SURPRISE: Wide receiver Travis Benjamin: The Browns waited until the third day of the draft to take a wide receiver but when they did they got one of the fastest in the group. He is only 5-10, 172 pounds, but he can stretch the defense and if not start be the X receiver in four-receiver sets. - The Sports Xchange

09/22/2011 - WR Travis Benjamin had only three receptions vs. Ohio State but returned a punt 24 yards that left the Hurricanes only 53 yards to travel for their second touchdown. - The Sports Xchange

09/22/2011 - SCOUTING THE OFFENSE: Miami has gotten together a very effective running game led by backs Lamar Miller (303 yards) and Mike James (79). Sophomore WR Allen Hurns has become a favored target, though senior WR Travis Benjamin likely will see his role increase. He has the speed to stretch the field. QB Jacory Harris still is too interception-prone, throwing two and having a couple of others nearly picked off against Ohio State. - The Sports Xchange

08/09/2011 - KEYS TO SUCCESS: The Hurricanes will have to settle on a quarterback fast as senior Jacory Harris and sophomore Stephen Morris continue the duel they started in the spring. Miami has several receivers led by senior Travis Benjamin, who often frustrated previous coach Randy Shannon by taking a play or two off. The offensive line looks primed to lead the way for a strong running game. Defensively, the front seven looks solid. - The Sports Xchange
