After a long and convoluted journey through college football, offensive lineman Seantrel Henderson brings his wealth of potential to the NFL.

Questionable behavior and suspensions may have plagued Henderson in the draft, but his talent was too much to overlook.

A Jekyll and Hyde approach at the tackle position was Mr. Seantrel and Mr. Henderson during his time at the University of Miami. The upside being Henderson's Jekyll was just that great.

Scouting Report: Listed at 6'7" and 331 pounds at the NFL Combine, Seantrel Henderson is a big body with a bit of speed that is ideal for sculpting into a NFL caliber player. While playing in 43 games and starting 26, Henderson proved early on his freshman year that he was game ready. Henderson's key disadvantage is his consistency. Lapses in technique and a weakness adjusting to a speeding rush attack torment his play. Adding strength is a must.

Here's what NFL Network's Mike Mayock had to say:

"Seantrel Henderson to me is one of the biggest boom or bust guys in the draft. A year ago I watched him against the kid Bjoern Werner of FSU who went in the first round and he shut him out. You see him play at that level sometimes and a completely different and lower level other times. There's no consistency with this kid at all. From a talent perspective he's a first or second round pick. But I don't see him getting picked anywhere near there. I think he's probably a 4th round pick. It is a buyer beware."

Congrats Seantrel!!
