BIOGRAPHY: Former cornerback who started the past two years and won All-Conference honors after each season. Senior-year totals included 133/11/1 after 114/6.5/1 the previous year.
POSITIVES: Active linebacker who makes plays in every direction of the field. Fast moving laterally, fluid pedaling in reverse, and explosive filling gaps up the field in run defense. Gets depth on pass drops, can flip his hips, and runs downfield with opponents. Collapses from the outside defending the run, slides off blocks, and wraps up when tackling. Hustles around the field and works hard to make plays.
NEGATIVES: Inefficient, wastes a lot of movement, and does not consistently play within himself. Very quick up the field and gets caught out of position. Easily knocked off balance by opponents and blocked at the point of attack.
ANALYSIS: Henderson is an athletic linebacker who plays with a great degree of suddenness, flashing on the scene. He has an aggressive style of play, which projects well to the next level if he can harness himself and learn to do the little things well.
