Arrelioius Benn expected to enter draft today

The speculation is that Illinois junior wide receiver Arrelious Benn will announce at a news conference today that he is leaving for the NFL.

Instead of ruminating on this issue myself, check out what Dr. Saturday Matt Hinton has to say. I think it sums up Benn pretty well:

 

Rare is the talent that can ultimately produce so little -- just seven receiving touchdowns in three years, four of them in losses -- and still go on dripping with such tantalizing potential.

Yes, Juice Williams did have his issues as a quarterback. And Benn was injured parts of this season. But the lack of production is reminiscent of Darrius Heyward-Bey. Which, financially speaking, could be a good thing for Benn.
