3. Trey Benson, redshirt junior
Running back is not a premium position like wide receiver or edge rusher, but that’s all the more reason for Benson to head to the NFL, despite having another year of eligibility. The Oregon transfer has turned into a star at Florida State.
Benson ran for 990 yards on 154 carries last in 2022 and this season he’s already up to 721 yards on 113. If you’re mathematically inclined then you already know that he’s averaged 6.4 yards per rush both seasons.
This year, he’s developed as a pass-catcher as well with 17 catches for 214 yards and a touchdown. The Athletic’s Dane Brugler had Benson in his list of players that just missed his midseason top 50 big board. His stock is up and he’s looking like a second-round pick.
