Entered the week as one of the best defensive prospects here and he hasn’t disappointed.
Benton’s violent hands earned him some love from fellow Badgers teammate Nick Herbig, who shared his thoughts on Twitter.
Looking to improve his draft stock, Benton will be a player to watch going forward during the week of Senior Bowl practices.
