First Round Draft Pick Kelvin Benjamin Arrives in Charlotte


by WCCB Charlotte

 CHARLOTTE, NC -- Panthers fans are excited for the newest addition to the offense.  The last time Kelvin Benjamin took the field, he caught the winning touchdown for Florida State in the national title game.  And now he calls the Carolinas home.  

Friday, Benjamin got to see Bank of America Stadium, and even had dinner with Graham Gano and a few other players.  So what kind of receiver is he?  Well unlike former Panther Steve Smith and his 5' 9" stature, Benjamin says his strength is in his 6' 5" frame.

"I really think it's my size," he said.  "Basically I can do the same thing a small receiver can do.  I really try to work harder to be a top wide receiver, with a bigger body frame."
