2024 NFL Draft Profile: Trey Benson, RB Florida State


The 2024 NFL offseason is here and that means it’s time for mock drafts, draft profiles and everything that goes with them. So without further ado, here’s one of many Draft Profiles for the 2024 NFL draft.

Trey Benson, RB Florida State

HT: 6’0
WT: 216 lbs


• 2x Second-team All-ACC (2022, 2023)



Exceptional long speed, consistently finding extra gears to outpace defenders.

Notable burst and acceleration, particularly effective in downhill runs.

Demonstrates serious strength and balance, and uses his frame to run aggressively.

Consistent improvement in vision, especially noticeable over his two seasons as a starter.

Good skills as a pass-catcher with natural receiving abilities.

Shows explosive downhill capabilities and lateral agility to evade defenders.

Exhibits improved understanding of angles and block following.

Has good not great hands


Limited hip flexibility, affecting his ability to maneuver in open spaces.

Often seeks contact, leading to potential overexposure to hits.

Needs development in pass protection, currently below average.

May not be as effective in more complex running routes at the NFL level.

Serious injury history that will need to be checked out. Benson tore his anterior cruciate ligament, medial collateral ligament, lateral meniscus, medial meniscus, and another tendon.


Benson’s blend of toughness, explosiveness, and ongoing refinement in his running skills positions him as a potential playmaker in the pro game. If he’s utilized as a workhorse back he could be a consistent 1000 yd producer.
