Benjamin’s unique size creates a nightmare for most secondaries and, at 6-foot-5, he would be the largest wide receiver on the Seahawks roster, if drafted.

He is great at jumping up for balls that are overthrown and in 2013, he helped the Florida State Seminoles win a national championship.

Teaming up with Heisman Trophy winner Jameis Winston, Benjamin caught 54 passes for more than 1,000 yards and 15 touchdowns, and he had the game-winning TD catch in the BCS National Championship Game.

His size and strength allow him to break tackles and his speed allows him to break free for big plays.

Here are some highlights of Benjamin from last season:
