2012 season: 67 tackles, 7.5 TFL, 7 INT, 1 FF, 2 FR, 2 TD

Benwikere may be the most underrated defensive back in the country. He's already broken up five passes and intercepted another in the first two games of the 2013 season.

He is a cover corner who can turn interceptions and fumble recoveries into touchdowns, and he can even tackle. Benwikere is the real deal and I don't think he will get past the third round in next year's draft with another stellar season and good workouts before the draft.
