Player Overview

Henderson continues to be a tough prospect to project because he is extremely talented for a player of his size and strength, but the potential hasn't necessarily translated to the field.

He was a five-star high school recruit and widely believed to be one of the best offensive linemen to enter the college ranks in recent years. Henderson chose to play at Southern Cal, but changed his mind once the Trojans were slapped with a two-year postseason ban, deciding instead to enroll at Miami.

He started nine games as a true freshman at right tackle for the Hurricanes, earning Freshman All-American honors. Henderson was suspended for the season opener in 2011 for violation of team rules and missed several other games because of offseason back surgery. He started only a pair of games in '11, both at right tackle, but enjoyed a solid 2012 with seven starts and All-ACC honorable mention honors from league coaches.

Henderson was suspended yet again last season for a violation of team rules, missing the Georgia Tech game. He finished the year starting eight of the 12 games he appeared in at right tackle.

Henderson is a mountain of a man and has enough foot quickness to hold his own on the edge, but the latest report of a failed drug test may drop a player with first-round talent all the way out of the draft. After admitting at the Senior Bowl that he had been suspended for failed marijuana tests multiple times in college, Henderson certainly continues to hurt his own cause by reportedly failing yet another test - and one he knew was coming months in advance.

Strengths Weaknesses

STRENGTHS: A similarly jaw-dropping combination of size and power as San Diego Chargers 2013 first round pick D.J. Fluker, Henderson relies on his length and underrated lateral quickness to protect the edge against speed rushers. Typically, his long arms keep pass-rushers at bay and he plays with good patience, keeping his knees bent and his butt low to stop bull-rushers in their tracks.

Henderson is even more impressive in the running game, where he can surprise defenders with his ability to reach them and his strength to latch on and control is impressive.

WEAKNESSES: Like Fluker, Henderson is so large that he struggles, at times, with leverage. He comes off the snap a bit high and when he lunges at defenders, he can get top-heavy and nearly fall flat on his face. Struggled to stay on the field at Miami due to a concerning combination of injuries and off-field issues.

Compares To: D.J. Fluker, San Diego Chargers.

05/12/2014 - A closer look at the Bills picks: Round 7/237 -- Seantrel Henderson, T, 6-7, 331, Miami...Was touted as a first-round talent, but his stock fell after three positive marijuana tests at Miami and he openly admitted to his drug use at the Scouting Combine. Bills general manager Doug Whaley made it very clear that he's got one shot, and if he stays straight, he could be the steal of draft. Henderson is a big man, but he moves like a linebacker, likely due to his basketball background as he had Division I scholarship offers to play basketball. He often dominated games with 58 knockdown blocks and 10 touchdown blocks. - The Sports Xchange
