Physical Attributes – Bennett is extremely tall and long levered. Has a body to get to the 260’s when it's all said and done. He has good balance and body control, burst, acceleration and speed for size. He is strong and powerful in the blocking game.
Position Specific Skills – Bennett shows the toughness and strength it takes to be dominant in run game blocking. He also shows he has the release, athletic ability, hands and speed to be dominant in the pass game. A great route runner who can drop his weight and burst out of cuts to create separation. He has excellent hands and a huge catch radius.
Overall – Bennett is a true TE prospect with size, athleticism and speed. A huge catch radius allows him to out man his opponent with his length. He has good burst off the ball keeping his body low to the ground, he can stab his foot and redirect really well for size to create separation. He has really good hands and can adjust his body to the ball in the air. He runs really well and can be a mismatch vs LB’s and safeties. He also shows he has the length, strength and toughness to finish blocks on DE types. I believe Bennett has a high ceiling at a position where there are not a lot of guys that fit his description these days. Ohio State got a good one in Bennett.
