Scouting Report: Strengths
- Uses his hands well, with good hand placement to maximize his powerful punch. Henderson shows impressive coordination between his upper and lower body when moving in pass protection.
- Has fluid body control with loose hips. Physical and tough with good effort in the run game. Plays with a finishing attitude with an aggressive, nasty temperament.
- Consistently keeps his feet sliding while maintaining power when dealing with speed, often sending speed rushers flying past the pocket
- Has the agility, technique, and size to contribute early in his professional career. Quick, active hands to latch on to defenders.
- He plays with good leverage despite his taller frame, and he’s a surprisingly good mover for his size, showing fluidity and flexibility when blocking on the second level.
- Plays with natural leverage and has the strength to anchor against the bull rush. Henderson also packs a violent initial punch that can stand up pass rushers.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
- Not physically imposing and has average overall strength. Upper body gets over his feet too often and Henderson easily loses his balance.
- More of a wall-off blocker at the second level, rarely putting defenders on the ground. Henderson could stand to be a more tenacious finisher at the next level, as he too often falls off blocks.
- Can struggle to stay engaged, especially on the second level. His hand placement can be sloppy, costing him power.
