Stan Bennett - Draft Analysis
Strengths: He has great playing experience, but at the Division I-AA level. He is a solid pass blocker, but is better in the running game. Not dominating, but he knows the angles, uses his hands and has a wide wingspan. He almost always plays under control, with great leverage and balance.
Weaknesses: He will need to add some size, because he is destined to play right tackle. He has the frame to grow, but the bulk isn't there yet. He has some trouble in pass protection -- he needs to become better at moving laterally.
Bottom line: Bennett is worth a pick if he is sitting around in
the sixth round. He only played at the I-AA level, but he has a great
frame and shows the strength to dominate in the running game. He is a
right tackle prospect, but he could be a diamond in the rough if he adds
He shows great skills in pass protection, but Stan is even better as a run blocker. He is an intelligent, hardworking player who knows the game, uses his large wingspan, and always plays under control. Being a right tackle prospect, Bennett will need to add some bulk, as he is undersized for the pros.
He does have some trouble in pass protection and moving laterally, but it is something that can be improved with good professional coaching and hard work. With only Division I-AA experience, he may be overlooked by a lot of teams, but Bennett could possibly be a great late-round pickup. --Profile by STATS, Inc.
