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.
