Draft Profile: Bio
LaDarius Henderson from Waxahachie High School was rated a 3-star recruit by ESPN and handed a 3-star grade by 247 Sports. Following high school, Henderson opted to join Arizona State.

In 2019 as a freshman Henderson saw action in 10 games and played a total of 556 snaps for the Sun Devils. He allowed an unipressive 16 QB hurries, 5 QB hits, and 5 sacks while playing at left tackle.

As a sophomore in 2020 he played in just 3 games and a total of 62 snaps. He conceded just one QB hurry, one QB hit, and 2 sacks while playing the majority of his snaps at right guard, and the rest at tight tackle.

In 2021 as a junior Henderson saw action in 13 games and totaled 823 snaps. He gave up 8 QB hurries, one QB hit, and one sack while playing at left guard.

In 2022 as a senior Henderson saw action in 6 games and played a total of 361 snaps for the Sun Devils. He allowed just 3 QB hurries, no QB hits, and one sack while playing at left guard.

After season's end Henderson transferred to Michigan where as a fifth year senior Henderson saw action in 12 games and played a total of 523 snaps for the Wolverines. He allowed an unipressive 19 QB hurries, 4 QB hits, and 2 sacks while playing at left tackle.
Scouting Report: Strengths
  • Has good footwork and technique. Balanced and agile pass protection set with excellent hand placement.
  • Shows excellent awareness when presented with stunts and blitzes, and Henderson works well with teammates on combo blocks
  • Has a strong, flexible core, and the ability to absorb and anchor against the bull rush as a pass protector.
  • Adequate foot quickness to remain outside. Can get to the second level with surprising agility when adjusting to moving defenders. Underrated athleticism, agility, balance, and even straight-line speed to contribute.
  • Henderson will have a chance to develop as a right tackle or possibly inside at guard, where he could be an interesting prospect for a zone-blocking team. If nothing else, that versatility is enough to make him at least a quality reserve.
  • He’s a fluid mover in pass protection, with great coordination between his upper and lower body. Henderson sets with a wide base, has the requisite core strength and plays with natural balance, capable of sitting back and handling power.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • Stops his feet after initial contact, relying on length but allowing defender to get the corner or spin inside.
  • Sometimes Henderson simply gets too impatient to sit back in his set, reaching and lunging and generally playing with poor balance.
  • He’ll have trouble with elite quickness at the next level.

*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.
