Funny. Clearly your not a Cowboy fan so it clouds your thoughts. Pretty hard to determine a players potential before they take a snap in the NFL. With that its pretty strong to say they blew the pick. If in the next few years Elliott is a top 5 RB and returns the offense to 2014 form its hardly blowing it. Ramsey looks to be a great player too. But Dallas needed to put a top RB behind that OL before contracts split it up as much as a top DB. The RB helps crown the OL, reduces the QB hits and frees up the passing game. Ramsey may not have as big an impact in Jacksonville as Elliott will have in Dallas. We will see.........
Can turn over either shoulder and finish with either hand
Footwork in the post
Soft touch around the basket
Putting the ball on the deck for a dribble or two to get to the basket
Runs the floor well
Needs to get stronger
Physicality; gets pushed around inside
Gets caught watching the action rather than sticking his nose in the mix
Can he guard NBA power forwards on the perimeter?
Summary: Benson has a nice combination of size, length and athleticism that makes him effective at the college level, but is not very physical. His numbers are a bit bloated playing in a weak Summit League but he has held his own against some of the better teams in the country. He could potentially be a borderline first-round pick but more than likely ends up being taken in the second round.
Player Comparison: Dan Gadzuric. Gadzuric brings athleticism to the frontcourt but gets pushed around inside due to a lack of strength. Benson is in the same mold as he will struggle guarding bigger players in the league. Both players have a decent mid-range game but Benson will have to play the four at the next level if he wants to be more successful than Gadzuric.
