Scouting Report: Strengths
  • He’s built like a defensive back but hits like a linebacker. Milano has sideline-to-sideline range and is a violent, wrap-up hitter.
  • Henderson can be used as a rangy run defender inside, instinctive when it comes to locating the ball with the quickness to get to it before blockers can react at the second level.
  • Has the combination of size and athleticism worthy of development.
  • He’s an instinctive and active chase-and-tackle 4-3 Will, with the speed to go sideline to sideline. He takes excellent angles. He also has an innate sense for shooting gaps as a run defender.
  • The talent is there as a sideline-to-sideline playmaker.
  • Henderson takes proper angles and shows impressive closing speed. He’s also outstanding in space and is one of the best coverage guys in this class.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • He’s instinctive with the range to be a quality two down player. Henderson might stay on the field on third downs only if he’s part of a zone-heavy scheme, limiting his appeal.
  • Doesn't have enough speed, power or bulk to fit any LB position perfectly in the NFL.
  • Henderson lacks the ability to anchor and set the edge as a run defender, and Henderson too often gets caught up in the wash when chasing in pursuit.

*Percentile Ranking in Player's Position Group (NFL Combine Historical Data): This percentile reflects how a player's specific statistics rank in comparison to historical performances at the NFL Combine, specifically within their position group. A higher percentile indicates a better performance. For instance, being in the 90th percentile for a particular stat means the player outperformed 90% of their peers in that category.

*Similarity Percentage: This percentage is calculated based on a comprehensive analysis of various factors, including height, weight, 40-yard dash times, on-field performance statistics, and overall player rating. The analysis is conducted against our database of draft prospects from 2021 to 2023. This similarity score helps in evaluating how closely a current prospect aligns with past prospects. It is important to note, however, that this score reflects similarities based on college production and attributes, and does not account for eventual success or performance in the NFL.
