Report: 'Tired' Kelvin Benjamin blows off workout with NFL coach
If receiver Kelvin Benjamin really cancelled an NFL workout because he was too tired, that's probably not a great look.
Florida State receiver Kelvin Benjamin could be on the verge of landing in the first round of next month's draft, and though he's almost certainly behind receivers like Sammy Watkins, Mike Evans, Odell Beckham Jr., and Brandin Cooks, teams likely will be impressed with his size and versatility.
This, however, probably won't help.
Kelvin Benjamin 30th in my new rankings. Was told KB recently blew off workout w NFL coach who had made special trip, said he was too tired— Gil Brandt (@Gil_Brandt) April 10, 2014
For now, three of the five CBSSports.com mock drafters predict Benjamin will be selected in the first round (either at No. 27 to New Orleans or at No. 32 to Seattle).
Whether this reported faux pas will have an impact on Benjamin's draft stock remains to be seen. But it stands to reason that whichever team was blown off by Benjamin probably won't use its first-round draft pick on him.
