Scouting Report on Arrelious Bennby Mike Farrell - 06/19/2006
Benn is a big, physical receiver who is a match up nightmare for cornerbacks and safeties. He has strong hands and the ability to adjust to the football in the air. Heâ€™ll be a red zone threat right away in college and is physically ready for the next level. Benn has deceptive speed and has a nice second gear coming out of cuts and he gets his head around quickly. His strength allows him to outmuscle defenders for the football and makes it tough to get a bump on him off the line of scrimmage. Benn can go across the middle and is willing to absorb hits to make the catch. Has a high yards-after-contact rate because of his size and elusiveness. Ben could play an H-Back role in college with the right team creating mismatches off the line of scrimmage or out of the backfield. Benn is an excellent blocker off the line and downfield. He needs to work on his route running. Benn is a terrific athlete who could be a dominator on defense as well as a safety or linebacker.
