Strengths

Benjamin is a good route runner and understands how to get open at the top of routes and use his explosive movements to his advantage. As a returner, he is a "one cut and go" runner who can break for daylight. The key to his game as a receiver is his ability to get open, and he doesn't shy away from contact despite his stature. He will be a true deep threat at the next level who runs crisp intermediate routes, as well, and can be productive if he gets off the line of scrimmage.

Weaknesses

Benjamin is extremely undersized and bases his entire game around his speed and quickness. He has a hard time getting off the line of scrimmage if not given a free release. He lacks the strength or size to recover if jammed by a more physical receiver. Benjamin has also struggled throughout his career to create any production in traffic. His preference is to be outside on the perimeter, away from contact, which could be his Achilles heel if moved into the slot.
