The Browns have selected Miami wide receiver Travis Benjamin this afternoon in the fourth round (No. 100 overall) of the NFL Draft.
The 5-foot-10, 175-pound Benjamin started nine of 11 games last season, catching 41 passes for 609 yards and three touchdowns. He finished his four-year collegiate career with 25 starts in 49 games and 131 receptions for 2,146 yards and 13 touchdowns.
Benjamin also served as a return man for the Hurricanes. Last season, he returned 25 kickoffs for 592 yards (23.7 average) and 11 punts for 121 yards (11.0 average).
Benjamin has established a reputation for being able to gain yards after the catch, a coveted attribute in Browns coach Pat Shurmur's version of the West Coast offense. In February, Benjamin posted a time of 4.36 seconds in the 40-yard dash at the NFL Scouting Combine, tying for second among all players. He said he posted his personal-best time of 4.26 seconds the summer before his junior season.
The Browns now have six picks remaining in the third and final day of the draft. They are in the fourth (No. 120), fifth (No. 160), sixth (Nos. 204 and 205) and seventh (Nos. 245 and 247) rounds.
