Bills selected Miami OT Seantrel Henderson with the No. 237 overall pick in the 2014 NFL draft.
Henderson (6-foot-6 7/8, 331) entered college as the nation's No. 2 high school recruit before a checkered Miami career, enduring back problems and three separate marijuana-related suspensions. He wound up making 26 career starts, all at right tackle. When focused, Henderson flashed dominant power-blocking ability in the ACC, and he has necessary length (34 5/8-inch arms) to develop into a standout pass blocker. He's a classic boom-or-bust prospect with Pro Bowl upside, but a short-career floor. Henderson will have a real shot at making the 53-man roster if his head is on straight. May 10 - 6:26 PM

Miami T Seantrel Henderson tested positive for marijuana at the NFL Combine, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Henderson has had issues throughout his college career after exiting high school as one of the top recruits in the country. He could never lock down a full time starting spot, and head coach Al Golden alluded to a lack of consistency and reliability as the reason. Henderson has a ridiculous combination of power and size and athleticism, but he may go undrafted.

An anonymous NFL scout said, on a pure talent basis, Miami T Seantrel Henderson compares to Auburn's Greg Robinson.

"He has the talent to be right there behind the Auburn kid (Greg Robinson)," said the scout. "He's amazingly athletic." That's the good news. Here's the bad: "He's got a big, beautiful body but he didn't play with a sense of urgency," another scout said. "He quit on the (pro day) workout. I thought he was a lazy butt down there at the Senior Bowl. I'm not much for taking them dogs myself." The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported that Henderson admitted to scouts that his multiple suspensions were due to marijuana use, leading a third scout to say this: "Off the board. Dope, dope and more dope. He needs help."

The 49ers hosted Miami T Seantrel Henderson for a pre-draft visit last week.

Henderson (6-foot-7, 331 pounds) is a former elite recruit who has all the necessary tools to be a stud OT in the NFL. However, he didn't come anywhere close to living up to his ability at Miami, and he has high wash-out odds. This is a true boom-or-bust prospect, but if the cost is a Day 3 pick and the team is well coached, why not roll the dice?

The Dolphins will host Miami T Seantrel Henderson for a visit this week.

Miami desperately needs offensive tackle reinforcement in this draft, and the local product Henderson figures to be one of their contingency plans if circumstances dictate that they wait until the third-round. Henderson has taken a beating in the media over the past year, including reports that he "quit" his pro day. It should be noted that he was actually forced to withdraw due to dehydration.

Miami T Seantrel Henderson "quit" halfway through his pro day workout, according to Chris Mortensen.

"No explanation yet," Mortensen tweeted. "Disappointing." Seantrel Henderson has had plenty of ups and downs during his career after being a highly touted recruit. He has so much talent but never nailed down a full-time starting job, reportedly due to off the field inconsistencies. He has great tools, but has not put them together. We should say an explanation would be appropriate, if there is one, before concluding or bashing Henderson.
Apr 3 - 3:18 PM

Miami T Seantrel Henderson ran two unofficial forty times of 5.03 seconds with a personal best 10 yard split of 1.71 seconds.

Henderson has always had great upside and flashed it on the field. Predominantly lining up at right tackle, the former top recruit has a great combination of agility and power. However, questions come with Henderson's evaluation. He could be a great player in the right situation, but he has a lot to work on, including on the field.

Miami T Seantrel Henderson struggled during the Senior Bowl.

A forgettable week of practice culminated in a game in which Henderson repeatedly allowed North edge rushers to pressure his quarterbacks. "This film is going to be scrutinized more than any tape they put out there," North coach Mike Smith of the Atlanta Falcons said. That's not a comforting thought for the massive tackle. Rotoworld's Josh Norris noted the drop of Henderson's stock in his Senior Bowl Review column. "Henderson seemed to plateau and failed to use his combination of athleticism and strength effectively," Norris wrote. "I still think Henderson can be successful if he lands with the right team."

Miami T Seantrel Henderson will attend the Senior Bowl.

This could be quite a moment for Henderson. It is difficult to question Henderson's talent, as he offers one of the best combinations of power and athleticism in this class. There is a reason he was only a part time player this year, however, and his struggles at Miami date back for a few seasons.

Miami senior RT Seantrel Henderson is no longer suspended from the team but will not start against UNC on Thursday.

"Missing a game is a big part, but how I felt myself after letting the team down and being suspended again after I'd already been suspended before, I feel like that was hard for me," said Henderson. "I was hard on myself. I'd already made the mistake, so I had to focus on moving on." Brandon Linder is now starting over Henderson. We think the senior offers a unique blend of size, power, and movement skills, but his off-field activities will be questioned.

Miami coach Al Golden said that senior T Seantrel Henderson is expected to return from suspension on Monday.

Henderson was suspended indefinitely for a violation of team rules on Saturday, but it appears as though his penalty will end after only one missed game. Henderson's character has been called into question before, and Golden's disappointment in his talented right tackle won't end as quickly as his suspension. "I'm not going to answer these questions for Seantrel anymore. I think he needs to address it next time we're available to the media. I'm going to let you guys ask him the questions and let him address that. I think it's really important that he stands up and takes responsibility and let him communicate that to you guys," Golden said.

Miami senior T Seantrel Henderson has been suspended indefinitely for a violation of team rules.

This is frustrating but not surprising. Henderson has an outstanding combination of size, athleticism, and punching power, but his personality and character have always been in question by those that cover the Miami football program. He's a ridiculous talent, but it is okay to question if he will ever put it together. Jon Feliciano will start at right tackle.

Miami updated their depth chart for the season opener against FAU, and senior Seantrel Henderson was not listed as the starter at RT.

Redshirt junior Jon Feliciano is apparently starting in his place. Henderson has generated his share of headaches during his time with the Hurricanes, but the mammoth offensive lineman appeared to put those issues behind him last season with solid play. Nothing has been reported regarding if the demotion is related to an off-field issue, but we think it certainly isn't skill related. Al Golden could be sending a message to Henderson. We think he can be as good as he wants to be.

Draft insider Tony Pauline labeled Miami senior T Seantrel Henderson a second rounder prior to his final season with the Hurricanes.

Henderson is an "athletic college tackle with an inconsistent game," writes Pauline. "At times dominates opponents showing terrific skill in pass protection or driving defenders off the line run blocking. Looks very ordinary in other instances getting beaten by speedy pass rushers and playing with little balance." It is tough to speculate what goes on off the field for Henderson, but he can be a force and first-round talent on it.

CBS Sports' Dane Brugler expects to see former Alabama T D.J. FLuker comparisons for Miami senior T Seantrel Henderson.

Brugler calls Henderson an "absolute mountain of a man" but lacks elite lateral range. The draft analyst does note that Henderson is a better athlete than Fluker, which is good news since some believed the Crimson Tide offensive lineman would ultimately move to guard.
