Dynasty Rookie Draft Prospects

Trey Benson (RB – Florida State)

Benson wins with leg drive and build-up speed with home run ability (4.4 40-yard dash) once he gets into the second level of a defense. Benson’s burst is average overall, but he showed more juice immediately after the handoff in 2022 versus 2023. I expect his short area agility numbers to be ok but not amazing and his 10-yard split to be average. Benson has no problem fighting for extra yards after first contact with his powerful legs. He can shed arm tackles with ease as he always keeps his legs churning. He’s a more linear runner with the ability to juke defenders in the second level once he’s built up some steam. Benson can get in trouble behind the line of scrimmage when he’s forced to string multiple moves together to avoid defenders as his burst comes into question. Overall, he has decent vision and follows his blocks well, but Benson can hesitate at times when his gap is plugged, and he’s forced to run the quick math of other options around him. Benson is more willing to barrel forward and take what a defense gives him rather than try to bounce a run outside, even when bouncing the run is the best course of action. He’s a tough interior runner where his power shows up, but he’ll miss cutback opportunities in the second level. Benson’s ability to handle a heavy workload should be questioned despite his size. His frame would suggest that he should be able to, but he hasn’t had more than 156 carries over the last two seasons and logged only one game in that period with at least 20 carries. Benson is a screen or chip and check-down option only in the passing game. He was tasked with the occasional angle route, but overall, he’s a functional but not outstanding receiving threat.

Isaiah Davis (RB – South Dakota State)

Churns yards out like butter. His legs are always moving. He’s a high-energy spark plug locomotive that teammates will feed off. He is always falling forward for a few extra yards, thanks to a neverending leg drive or a well-timed spin move after first contact. Davis has good patience at the attack point. He’ll follow his blocks toward daylight but also isn’t afraid to bounce a run outside if the lane is clogged. He has good vision with interior runs and the lateral agility to weave through the noise. Davis has a stiff arm that can send defenders into the afterlife. He can also shimmy and shake defenders in the second level, making people miss in a phone booth. He doesn’t have field flipping type of explosiveness, but he does well with the juice he has.

Daijun Edwards (RB – Georgia)

Edwards has an average burst that is made less effective by his indecision at the line. Edwards would be better served to get the train rolling with conviction early, but he shimmies at the line with footwork that’s better served in the open field. Edwards is a tough runner who can get “the dirty yards.” His lively feet can be an asset moving forward, as they serve him well when necessary, getting skinny at the line. At this stage, he is a check-down option only. Edwards was passable, leaking out of the backfield or running the occasional stop route.
