Browns Select WR Travis Benjamin in Fourth Round of 2012 NFL Draft


The Cleveland Browns finally drafted a wide receiver in the fourth round of the 2012 NFL Draft, selecting Travis Benjamin out of the University of Miami (FL). At 5-10, 172 pounds, he’s certainly not the going to be the biggest guy on the field, but he might just be the fastest.

Benjamin ran a 4.36 40-yard dash, which fills a desperate need for the Browns. The current receiving corps is painfully slow, and Benjamin could be the type of player to stretch the field and give new quarterback Brandon Weeden a downfield target.

It’s also worth noting that Benjamin played all four years in college. In his senior season, he caught 41 passes for 609 yards and three touchdowns.
