BIO: Moved into the starting lineup as a freshman and has won All-Conference honors every season since his sophomore campaign. Averaged 44.1 yards on 62 punts last season with a long of 74 yards. Placed 18 inside the 20 with five being called as touchbacks. Also had two punts blocked.
POSITIVES: Underrated punter that gets excellent hang time on his kicks. Explosive, kicks moon shots and enables coverage teams to get down the field. Performed well at the Combine, consistently getting hang times near 4.5 seconds.
NEGATIVES: Not quick getting the ball off his foot. Inconsistent and does not drive his punts or flip the field.
ANALYSIS: Steady on the college level, Benekos has an adequate leg for the NFL. Adequate when asked to directional kick and his punts are tough to handle which could help him find a way on a roster in the NFL.
