Analysis

Strengths

Good foot quickness to shadow, receive and restrict passing windows. Adequate long speed. Can open hips, turn and stride with receivers maintaining contact along the way. Has ability to improve as man-cover corner. Plays hard and plays fast. Even on negative snaps, he tends to be in decent position.

Weaknesses

Sometimes blind to the throw. In press, he plays with his back to the ball and does a poor job of turning and locating ball. Limited ball skills. Seemed to regress from junior campaign. Had no interceptions on 68 targets after tallying four in 2013. Limited instincts. Was credited with allowing 8 touchdowns in 2014. Had to see it rather than feel it, giving up leverage on slants. Below average play strength, which shows up in run support.

Draft Projection

Priority free agent

Sources Tell Us

"I don't see a draftable talent. He's got some quickness, but I don't see coverage traits, instincts or toughness cornerbacks need to have." -- NFC East scout

Bottom Line

Smallish with a thin build, Henderson was more productive and confident as a junior. Teams will be less concerned with his lack of play strength than they will with his lack of ball skills and overall instincts. Some of his issues are coachable, which means he should make it into a camp if he runs well.
