I have a Dev edition and have unlocked my bootloader and rooted. My next question is there any benefit to relocking bootloader and keeping root? In addition is there any benefit to flashing original recovery? I mainly wanted root for Xposed.

Simple answer no and no. You only need stock recovery if you want to take an ota

Would relocking bootloader provide more security?
