Benjamin St-Juste received a lot of attention at the Reese’s Senior Bowl last month. The former Minnesota defensive back shined in coverage and seemed to help his draft stock quite a bit.

Senior Bowl executive director and draft analyst Jim Nagy essentially confirmed that on Wednesday. In a tweet sent out, Nagy said that St-Juste is a player that’s getting a lot of “buzz” among NFL scouts with a little over two months left until the draft in April.

St-Juste had an outstanding season at Minnesota in 2019, totaling 45 tackles, 10 pass break-ups and 1.5 tackles for loss in 13 games. However, his production was overshadowed by star safety Antoine Winfield Jr. This year, St-Juste added 14 stops and 3 pass break-ups to his career totals.

Prior to the Senior Bowl, St-Juste had received grades around the 5th or 6th round, but it’s easy to see him climbing into potentially a 4th round spot (or higher) based on his Senior Bowl performance and team needs in the NFL.

Before transferring to Minnesota, St-Juste played at Michigan. He totaled just 3 tackles during his time with the Wolverines.
