Overview:

Henderson finished his career at Duquesne, where he played in 33 career games, had 207 tackles, 18.5 for loss, and 5.0 sacks. He also had 3 interceptions, 2 pass breakups, 1 forced fumble, and 3 fumbles recovered. He has good speed, is a tackling machine, is a hard hitter, and a run stuffer. He is a defensive play maker, a difference maker on defense, and has good instincts. He is also a good cover linebacker, he is very versatile, as he can play both outside linebacker, and inside linebacker. He is very physical, he does not back down, and he holds up very well against big offensive lineman. On the other hand, he is not the tallest linebacker, but that does not hurt his game. With that said, I see Henderson being a day 3 pick when it is all said and done.
