The Chiefs should avoid risks with their prime pick, and that's just what towering wideout Kelvin Benjamin is. Not many players at his position tip the scales at 240 pounds or stand 6'5".
But there are plenty of prospects more adept at the nuances of the position. Benjamin is extremely raw and boasts only limited production.
He caught 54 passes for 1,011 yards in 2013, per cfbstats.com, although Benjamin's 15 touchdown receptions is a more impressive figure.
However, 2013 was hardly a breakout season for a player who has not matched the efforts of some of the other members of this class.
There is also the recent report from NFL.com analyst Gil Brandt that Benjamin refused to attend a pre-draft workout because he was " too tired."
Benjamin's agent quickly refuted the claim, although Brandt remains adamant about his initial story.
This isn't the first time Benjamin's commitment has been called into question. Unbelievably, even the player himself has raised doubts.
In August of 2013, Benjamin told Palm Beach Post reporter Tom D'Angelo that he has taken plays off. NFL Media Analyst Charles Davis also cited concerns about Benjamin's weight to Pittsburgh's 93.7 The Fan Morning Show.
Benjamin's potential as a matchup nightmare is obvious. But that potential shouldn't tempt the Chiefs to overlook some of the real issues surrounding the player.
As Kansas City Star reporter Terez A. Paylor pointed out, the Chiefs were burned the last time they were enticed by a physical mismatch, 2011 first-round pick Jon Baldwin.
Back in February, Sports Illustrated scribe Doug Farrar suggested the Chiefs will take Benjamin at 23. Nearly two months later, that is a scenario the team should avoid.
