05/07/2014 - 2014 NFL Draft: 126 FBS programs, 126 possible UDFAs: TEXAS A&M: RB Ben Malena (5-8, 194, 4.61)...Although he likely doesn't have the frame to hold up or speed to make NFL defenders miss, Malena might be able to carve out a niche as a core special teams player. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com

08/29/2013 - OTHER TEXAS A&M PROSPECTS WORTH WATCHING: RB Ben Malena (5-08, 198, 4.54)...After serving as the backup to future NFL-picks Cyrus Gray and Christine Michael throughout much of his career, Malena emerged in 2012 as A&M's best all-purpose back, recording 919 yards, including 808 on the ground. Malena's production is tied into the Aggies' offense but scouts can't help but be intrigued by his vision and burst. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com

08/27/2013 - KEYS TO SUCCESS: Hope that Manziel gets good news from the NCAA at some point, because it's hard to imagine this offense being anywhere as dynamic without his presence. Should he maintain his eligibility, A&M will contend for the SEC West Division and national titles. Evans and TB Ben Malena (808 yards, eight TDs) give the offense a couple of good options and the line returns three starters, including NFL-ready Jake Matthews, who's moving from right tackle to left tackle. The defense was underrated, allowing less than four yards per carry and giving up 21.8 ppg despite being on the field for nearly 32 minutes per game because of the offense's quick scores. - The Sports Xchange
