INDIANAPOLIS - The wide receivers are starting to filter in for their interviews and one name that's not likely at the top of most lists is Travis Benjamin. He's a 5-10, 175-pound speedster out of Miami who not only isn't expected to be drafted but he's the third rated wide receiver at his own school behind Tommy Streeter and Aldarius Johnson.
But that may change soon.
In what has become something of a Combine tradition for unheralded players, Benjamin boasted of his potential 40 time and claims he's capable of running a sub-4.3.
"I feel like I can get there … a sub-4.3 40," said Benjamin, who has been working out with Cris Carter in Boca Raton, Fla.
When informed the NFL is considering having players run the 40 against each other at the Combine instead of individually, Benjamin smiled.
"I'd love to do that. I feel like my competitive nature if I ran against somebody would boost my adrenaline up more and make me run even faster," Benjamin said. "That would make me even faster than just against the clock."
Time will tell - literally.
