Cedric Benson School: Texas
Ht: 5-10.5 Wt: 222 40: 4.55 Year: 4Sr
Bio: 2004 Doak Walker Award winner and a
unanimous all-conference choice after posting
326/1,834/19 on the ground and adding 22/179/
1 as a pass catcher. Led Texas in rushing the
past four years.
Positives: Big, powerful ball carrier
who controls games or breaks them wide open.
Patient back who displays vision at the line of
scrimmage or down the field. Possesses some
wiggle and juke in his runs, sets up defenders,
making them miss at the point. Very tough
to bring down.
Negatives: Gives minimal attempts
blocking. Seemingly goes down rather easily at
times or finishes the play running out of bounds.
Experienced fumbling problems this season.
Made some very selfish comments prior to his
junior campaign when asked to share the load
at running back.
Analysis: Benson has all the
physical skills to be a premier NFL back. Must
pick up the tempo of his blocking. A franchise
running back when hitting on all cylinders.
