Huge difference between Benjamin and Jeffery. Jeffery was a far more reliable receiver, a better route runner, with better hands overall. Benjamin is just a raw project at this point, big and fast, lacking as a route runner with iffy hands.
Wilson played in a pro-style offense at Wisconsin, as opposed to Manziel running around and playing YOLO ball. In terms of work ethic, I don't know that there's any comparison, Wilson was all business all the time, a guy who teammates complained rarely went out and partied, meanwhile Manziel was going YOLO. I doubt that Manziel has the mentality needed to succeed in the NFL but only time will tell, however coming out of the draft, Wilson was far more ready to step in as an NFL starting QB from day 1.
