Bills coach Rex Ryan said he has been "really impressed" with T Seantrel Henderson.
He added the competition between Henderson and Cyrus Kouandjio at right tackle will be "fierce." Henderson ended up in Ryan's doghouse this offseason after showing up late to mandatory minicamps, but his play is apparently making up for it in camp. Henderson started all 16 games for the Bills at right tackle last season. Aug 1 - 12:37 PM

Bills OT Seantrel Henderson failed to attend the opening day of mandatory minicamp.

Henderson reported late because of a missed flight. Already demoted to the second team, Henderson now needs to work his way out of Rex Ryan’s doghouse. Cyrus Kouandjio remains firmly ahead of Henderson.

ESPN Bills reporter Mike Rodak believes "the coaching staff is very low" on second-year OT Seantrel Henderson.

It’s the latest reminder Henderson has fallen behind Cyrus Kouandjio. With Buffalo expected to sign Wayne Hunter, Henderson will face competition for swing duties. Henderson was abysmal as a rookie starter last season.

The Buffalo News' Vic Carucci believes second-year T Seantrel Henderson will be given a look at left tackle.

Carucci reports the Bills' coaching staff believes Henderson has the physical attributes to play on the left side. At 6-7, 331 pounds, Henderson certainly looks the part, but he did not play the part his rookie year, allowing six sacks and 12 quarterback hits across 16 starts at right tackle. Henderson will have to improve dramatically to unseat Cordy Glenn on the left side. He will most likely compete with fellow sophomore Cyrus Kouandjio at right tackle.

The Bills have opened their right tackle position to competition between Seantrel Henderson and Cyrus Kouandjio.

Although Henderson earned the distinction of starting 16 games as a seventh-round rookie last season, his on-field performance was abysmal. He graded out as Pro Football Focus' No. 82 tackle among 84 qualifiers, and was 83rd in run blocking. Still, Kouandjio is such a deficient athlete that the Bills' best option would likely be to stick with Henderson and simply hope he improves.
May 27 - 3:26 PM

Bills coach Doug Marrone raved about the play of rookie Seantrel Henderson and confirmed he expects Henderson to be the Week 1 starter at right tackle.

"We have an opportunity now that if (Henderson) keeps coming along to maybe have the best tandem in the league," Marrone said. "He’s been everything that people obviously didn't say about him when he was coming out which is why we were able to get him in the seventh round." Cordy Glenn (illness) returned to full team drills last week and will play in Saturday's preseason game, so the Bills are moving Henderson to right tackle. Erik Pears is starting at right guard. Second-round pick Cyrus Kouandjio was drafted to be Buffalo's right tackle of the future, but still needs time to develop.

Bills coach Doug Marrone told NFL Network's Ian Rapoport he believes seventh-round LT Seantrel Henderson "can be special."

A former top high school recruit, Henderson had an up-and-down career at the University of Miami and fell to the seventh round due to character issues. With Cordy Glenn's (illness, NFI) health status up in the air, Henderson is a candidate to be the Bills' Week 1 left tackle. It's conceivable Henderson could be Buffalo's blind-side answer of the future, with Glenn eventually moving to guard.

Bills GM Doug Whaley said rookie Seantrel Henderson will open training camp as the starting left tackle.

With Cordy Glenn sidelined, Henderson will get first-team reps over Chris Hairston. It's a nice vote of confidence from the Bills, and makes Henderson the favorite to open the season as Glenn's backup. Henderson fell to the seventh round in May's draft due to off-field issues, but has first-round talent.

Bills seventh-round OT Seantrel Henderson saw time with the first-team offense during OTAs.

With Cordy Glenn sitting out minicamp, Henderson was used at left tackle, with Cyrus Kouandjio and Erik Pears splitting reps on the right side. It's a good sign for Henderson's roster chances that the Bills are willing to give him an extended look this early. Chris Hairston is ahead of Henderson on the depth chart and would likely start if Glenn missed time in the regular season.

The Bills have told seventh-round OT Seantrel Henderson that he has "one shot."

Henderson was suspended three times for marijuana use at the University of Miami, failed a drug test at the Combine and couldn't complete his Pro Day because he was "overheated." But if he can mature quickly, the Bills will have themselves a steal. The 6'7/331 Henderson was the nation's top offensive line recruit coming out of high school. "There's not much to do here but work," Henderson said of Buffalo. "So, no excuse."

Bills signed No. 237 overall pick OT Seantrel Henderson to a four-year contract.

A five-star recruit destined for the blindside, Henderson (6-foot-7, 331) ended up making only 26 starts for Miami, all at right tackle. Plagued by back woes and issues with marijuana, Henderson rarely played up to his ability, but still has dominant power-blocking upside. He's a boom-or-bust prospect who will be in the driver's seat for a spot on the 53-man roster if he can keep his head on straight.

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 Hurricanes career, enduring back problems and three separate marijuana-related suspensions. He wound up making 26 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. It's worth noting Buffalo has a need at right tackle. If his head is on straight, Henderson will compete for that job with Erik Pears, Chris Hairston, and second-round pick Cyrus Kouandjio.

Sources tell ESPN's Adam Schefter that Miami OT Seantrel Henderson tested positive for marijuana at the NFL Combine.

It's another red flag for a talented player that has been plagued by off-field issues since stepping foot on Miami's campus. Henderson was a part-time player last season, getting suspended for violations of team rules. He also failed to complete his Pro Day a month ago because he felt "dehydrated and sick." Henderson has the natural talent of a Day 2 pick, but likely won't hear his name called until the late rounds at best now.

Miami OT Seantrel Henderson failed to finish his Pro Day workout on Thursday because he felt "dehydrated and sick."

It's just the latest disappointment for the one-time top recruit. Coming off a star-crossed career for the Hurricanes where he was rarely starting but often suspended, Henderson is trying to turn himself into a late-round flier. His mountainous size (6-foot-7, 331 pounds) and plus athleticism are working in his favor.
