NFL Insider Provides Update On Stetson Bennett's Pre-Draft Visits

As the NFL Draft approaches, most of the buzz has centered on the quarterbacks who figure to have a shot at being picked within the top five: Alabama's Bryce Young, Ohio State's C.J. Stroud, Kentucky's Will Levis and Florida's Anthony Richardson.

As a result, it's been easy to forget about the other signal-callers who will hear their names called, including former Georgia star Stetson Bennett.

But NFL teams certainly don't seem to be overlooking the two-time national champion. 

According to Tom Pelissero of NFL Network, Bennett has been "one of the busiest NFL Draft prospects since the combine." Bennett has scheduled private visits or workouts with at least 10 teams so far, Pelissero reported.

Bennett has long been one of the more polarizing prospects in this year's quarterback class.

On one hand, he proved his productiveness at Georgia, when he went 29-3 as the Bulldogs' starter. In 2022, Bennett threw for more than 4,100 yards and 27 touchdowns, plus added 10 more scores on the ground, en route to being named a finalist for the Heisman Trophy.

However, Bennett's size has led many to project him as a Day Two or Day Three pick. At the NFL Combine, Bennett was measured at 5-foot-11, 192 pounds. His recent arrest for public intoxication can't help his draft stock, either.

Bennett will look to convince an NFL team to take a chance on him during his upcoming workouts and visits.
