Panthers see potential star in WR Benjamin

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -- The Panthers selected wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin in the first round hoping he could developing into the team's No. 1 receiver down the road.
So far, so good.
Benjamin's performance at this week's three-day minicamp did nothing to dissuade Carolina general manager Dave Gettleman from believing that's still a very real possibility.
The 6-foot-5, 240-pound receiver was the star of the camp, catching everything in sight including two amazing grabs on back-to-back days.
Gettleman says "What goes through your mind are the possibilities."
Benjamin, who helped Florida State win a national championship earlier this year, is expected to battle with Jerricho Cotchery, Jason Avant and Tiquan Underwood for a starting job as a rookie. He's been mostly running with the first team when the Panthers go to three receiver sets.
