Carolina Panthers: C( Jeff Siner / MCT / May 9, 2014 )
The Panthers had to have a receiver to replace Steve Smith and could have used a top offensive tackle to replace Jordan Gross. They got Benjamin, who is 6-foot-5, 240 pounds with an 83-inch wing span but runs a 4.61. It marked the first time the Panthers have taken a WR in the first round since Rae Carruth in 1997.
