M junior tight end Martellus Bennett said he would enter next year's NFL draft if he thinks he'll be chosen in the first or second round.
``If the opportunity is there, you've got to do what you've got to do,'' said Bennett, who leads the Aggies with 24 receptions. ``It becomes more of a business aspect and you've got to do what's best for your family.
``I do think I'm the best tight end that would come out if I did come out.''
The 6-foot-7, 255-pound Bennett sat out last week's 36-14 win at Nebraska with a sprained ankle and said he may also miss Saturday's game against No. 12 Kansas (7-0, 3-0 Big 12).
M has completed only 113 passes this season, also a Big 12 low.
As long as the Aggies keep winning, Bennett said he's satisfied with how the offense has played.
``We've been doing a great job,'' he said. ``We've had one of the best offenses in the country the past two years, running it.''
Bennett admits he could've been more productive this season, but he also feels like he could contribute more if the coaches would call his number more often.
``I'm always open,'' he said. ``I've almost got a (Dikembe) Mutombo wing span and I can jump like Vince Carter, for the most part. I always feel like I'm open.''
M's all-time passing leader, with 6,992 yards.
``When Reggie was here, they were throwing that thing,'' Bennett said.
M has moved to a run-heavy, option attack. McGee rushed 35 times for 167 yards against Nebraska.
``Steve will probably lead the Big 12 in rushing,'' Bennett said.
M's offense goes, Bennett thinks the combine may be his best chance to impress scouts.
``I'm going to have to do it somewhere,'' he said.
