The Senior Bowl is a great opportunity for NFL draft prospects to showcase their skills. It pits them against other draft prospects and gives them a chance to talk with scouts and coaches. One Wisconsin Badger is making the most of his opportunity. Keeanu Benton is dominated at the Senior Bowl.
Nobody has really blocked Wisconsin NT Keeanu Benton yet

Keeanu Benton At The Senior Bowl
Because of how many teams there are in college football, great prospects often get lost. They aren’t on national television or they are on a mediocre or bad team so people don’t watch. This event is a chance for those players to jump off the page. It has only been one day and Benton is making a name for himself. He seems unblockable and his agility for his size is making people take notice.

He moves great for a big man and should be a good addition to any line. It isn’t just in drills that he is dominating. Here is a video where he smokes an offensive lineman.

Benton uses his hands effectively and the lineman stood no chance. Here’s another video of him against Michigan lineman Olu Oluwatimi.

The Michigan offensive line was one of the best in the league and Benton makes him look silly.
It is great to see Benton performing so well at the Senior Bowl. This should improve his draft stock and it’ll be interesting to see where he ultimately gets taken.
