Just four days after hauling in the touchdown to win the BCS National Championship for the Florida State Seminoles, wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin has decided to enter the 2014 NFL draft. 

And the redshirt sophomore is slated to be a first round pick.

Benjamin is one of the top receivers set to enter this year's draft class, drawing comparisons to Detroit Lions star Calvin Johnson thanks to his massive frame. Standing at 6-feet-5 and weighing in at 234 pounds, he is certainly a big target for QB's.

As Benjamin said prior to the BCS championship, per's Dan Greenspan, "When I first came out of high school, they were like 'You could be a baby Megatron.' I always looked up to him."

He caught 54 passes for 1,011 yards and 15 touchdowns, becoming Jameis Winston's number one target down the stretch and a key playmaker in the 'Noles offense.

Benjamin will be competing with Clemson's Sammy Watkins, Texas A&M's Mike Evans and USC's Marqise Lee to see who is the first receiver selected this year.
