BIOGRAPHY: Senior-year totals included 11/108 in his first year as a full-time starter. Played in three games in 2006 before breaking his ankle and undergoing season-ending surgery.
POSITIVES: Hard-working tight end with limited upside potential. Plays with terrific pad level, gets leverage on opponents, and attacks blocking assignments. Jolts opponents at the point and works hard until the whistle blows. Finds the open spot in the defense and extends to make the reception away from his frame.
NEGATIVES: Possesses average speed and quickness in his overall game. Not a dominant blocker who gets much movement. Does not possess soft hands.
ANALYSIS: Bennett is a high-character prospect who plays with a good degree of intelligence. He does not stand out in any single aspect of the game, yet he has enough skill to make it for a team that keeps three tight ends on their roster.
