Analysis:

Seantrel Henderson should be one of the top picks in this year’s NFL Draft. Henderson has the rare physical talent and the body control to be a top five talent.  However multiple suspensions at Miami (at least three) for violating team rules, have pushed Henderson down most boards and off some. Henderson admitted at the Senior Bowl that his suspensions were marijuana related. On the field Henderson lacks focus, determination and finish.   Some team will take a chance on Henderson. That team will need to have a strong system in place and a strong leader for him to learn from. If some team can maximize his potential, Henderson is a perennial pro-bowler. If not, he won’t amount to much.
