Wore No.14 at HUB Football CAMP (9/28/21). Big wideout who was easy to spot due to that size, Traylor-Bennett was a mismatch for most cornerbacks, using that physicality and threatening vertically with long strides. His hands were outstanding, plucking passes out of the air with ease, practically catching everything thrown his way. At the catch point, Traylor-Bennett boxed out defenders, shielding them off and coming down with contested catches. Like most big wide receivers, he will not wow with his agility and change of direction ability as he has room for improvement as a route runner. Bulking up and playing tight end would be a logical step for Traylor-Bennett, who can be a big-time red zone target at the CFL level.
