2010 NFL Draft Scouting Report: Sergio Kindle

  • Very big, strong frame
  • Tough and competitive
  • Displays great body control
  • Nice catch radius
  • Physical runner after the catch – doesn’t shy from contact
  • Good job of reading coverages
  • Will find the soft spots in zone
  • Savvy route runner
  • Changes speeds and really sells the corner
  • Impressive ball skills
  • Does a good job of sinking hips and exploding out of breaks
  • Not afraid to go over the middle
  • Solid speed and athleticism
  • Prototypical possession receiver
  • Love his hand-eye coordination
  • Nice vision
  • Terrific agility and change of direction
  • Great overall skill set

  • Lacks elite vertical speed
  • A little slow to eat the off-man cushion
  • Hands were somewhat inconsistent as a junior
  • Poor junior year production (read summary)
  • Primarily played in the slot at Illinois – will be asked to be a flanker/split end

    Summary: Benn has the talent and polish to contribute very early in his career and I don’t doubt that he will be a No. 1 receiver for some team. He wasn’t very productive as a junior, but most people I’ve talked to say the quarterback situation at Illinois really hurt Benn’s numbers. Benn will be a far better red=zone weapon in the NFL than he was in college. Benn is expected to go in the latter half of the first round.

    Player Comparison: Anquan Boldin. Boldin, like Benn, has a big frame with very good ball skills, athleticism and toughness.
