Sources on hand at Louisiana Tech's pro day workout said QB Ryan Higgins "could spin it."

"Higgins was a surprise winner today," wrote Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline. Higgins was the backup to 49ers' sixth-rounder Jeff Driskel in 2015 before a breakout this past season (4,617 yards with a 41/8 TD/INT ratio). "While it’s unlikely Higgins is selected in the draft he is expected to sign a deal after the draft," Pauline wrote.

Louisiana Tech WR Carlos Henderson met with the San Francisco 49ers, Arizona Cardinals and New Orleans Saints earlier this week.

Among others, those three clubs were in town for Henderson's pro day workout. That session was run by Detroit Lions offensive coordinator Jim Bob Cooter. Henderson opted to stand on his NFL Combine testing numbers, which wasn't a surprise after he lit up that event. Henderson's height-weight-speed numbers were comparable to Odell Beckham's.

Louisiana Tech WR Carlos Henderson's workout numbers "wowed scouts," according to ESPN's Mel Kiper.

At 5-foot-11, 199 pounds, Henderson ran 4.46 second forty-yard dash at the NFL Combine. He showed explosion with a 10-foot-11 broad jump and a 36-inch vertical. "He isn't a true No. 1 outside receiver, but he can help a team from the slot or outside and in the return game," Kiper wrote. "Henderson's versatility will help him, and his workout numbers wowed scouts, but he's still a boom-or-bust guy -- he had only one season of high-end play. Henderson is a solid Day 2 pick." Henderson checks in as Kiper's No. 9 WR. We're far higher on him. Rotoworld's Josh Norris ranks Henderson as the No. 3 WR in the class.

Louisiana Tech WR Carlos Henderson ran 4.46 second forty-yard dash at the NFL Combine.

His 10-foot-11 broad jump really impressed, while the 36-inch vertical was strong as well. You aren't surprised by Henderson's twitched-up trunks if you've seen his tape. He's a run-after-the-catch nightmare on defensive backs, combining speed and power. Rotoworld's Josh Norris ranks Henderson as the No. 3 receiver in the class. He's going to be a strong slot receiver from Day 1, but we think he has the game to hang on the outside too. As NFL Research noted on Twitter, Henderson's height-weight-speed combination is eerily similar to Odell Beckham's.

Louisiana Tech WR Carlos Henderson was gifted the Matt Harmon seal of approval, claiming the pass catcher is his favorite receiver in the 2017 NFL Draft.

"When viewed in totality, Carlos Henderson’s Reception Perception results speak to a player with perhaps more upside than any other receiver outside the top two," Harmon writes. Henderson's success against coverage was above average on nearly every route in the tree, which shows versatility. Harmon absolutely loves Henderson's yards after catch skills as well. Henderson ranks as Josh Norris' No. 3 receiver in the class thanks to his big play ability.

Rotoworld's Josh Norris ranks Louisiana Tech's Carlos Henderson as the No. 3 WR in the 2017 class.

Western Michigan's Corey Davis and Clemson's Mike Williams rank as the top two, but few place Henderson at three. The Bulldog is the best receiver in this class after the catch in terms of explosion and vision. He creates big plays in that area of the field. In fact, Matt Harmon charted Henderson breaking two-plus tackles 39% of the time when the opportunity presented itself. Henderson also plays bigger than his 5-foot-11 size. We are excited for his NFL Combine.

Louisiana Tech junior RB Jaqwis Dancy said that he is now cancer-free.

Dancy was diagnosed with Stage 3 Hodgkin lymphoma in mid-October. He has been going through chemotherapy treatments at St. Jude's Research Hospital and on Thursday announced that he has rid his body of cancer. Said Dancy, "The support I have received since the beginning has been amazing. My biggest goal right now is to get back on the field with my teammates." He will continue to undergo treatment to ensure that his future health is set. Nothing but good vibes for Mr. Dancy from our Rotoworld CFB staff.

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline passes along that "some say [Louisiana Tech WR Carlos Henderson] will not get out of the second round."

"There have been questions about his size, specifically his height, but I am told Henderson will measure a shade over 5-feet/11-inches," Pauline notes. "He is expected to run under 4.4s in the forty at the combine, with some believing he could drop into the 4.35s area." The analyst hears that opposing coaches in Conference USA have understandably been talking up the wideout to scouts. At the very least, it's beginning to look like a Day 2 selection is well within the realm of possibility for Henderson, with plenty of upward draft mobility possible over the next two-plus months.
Feb 9 - 3:13 PM

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline reports that Louisiana Tech WR Carlos Henderson is receiving Day 2 grades "from a number of teams."

Henderson's performance at the Combine will go a long way towards deciding where he eventually lands. The 5-foot-11, 194-pounder lacks height, but not production. He logged 82 receptions for 1,535 yards and 19 touchdowns while averaging over 32 yards per kick return last season.
Feb 6 - 4:47 PM

Louisiana Tech junior WR Carlos Henderson will declare for the 2017 NFL Draft, according to Tony Pauline.

Louisiana Tech will lose its top two receivers. Henderson totaled 82 receptions for 1535 yards and 19 touchdowns while averaging over 32 yards per kick return. Henderson is a sub-6-foot receiver, so it is unlikely he will be a first round prospect, but second day status is possible depending on workouts.

Louisiana Tech senior WR Trent Taylor caught 12 passes for 233 yards and two touchdowns in Friday's 48-45 win over Navy in the Lockheed Martin Armed Forces Bowl.

Taylor and fellow wideout friend Carlos Henderson (10-129-2) collectively crumpled the Midshipmen on Friday. For his part, the 5-foot-8, 180-pound Taylor collected touchdown passes of 19 and 51 yards in the first and second quarters, respectively. That 51-yard grab came just seconds before halftime. Taylor finishes off his 2016 campaign having caught 136 passes for 1,803 yards and 12 touchdowns. He has accepted an invitation to the Senior Bowl and will commence the draft process proper next month.

Louisiana Tech redshirt senior QB Ryan Higgins completed 29-of-40 passes for 409 yards and four touchdowns in Friday's 48-45 win over Navy in the Lockheed Martin Armed Forces Bowl.

In a fantastically entertaining, high-scoring contest, Higgins and company came out in front at the gun courtesy of a game-winning 32-yard field goal off the leg of Jonathan Barnes. For his part, the 6-foot-1, 196-pound Higgins tossed three of his four touchdowns in the first half. He added a one-yard touchdown run in the first quarter, to boot. He has done a fantastic job guiding the Bulldog offense this season, throwing for 4,617 yards with a 41/8 TD/INT ratio over 12 games played.

Louisiana Tech junior WR Carlos Henderson caught nine passes for 207 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 58-44 loss to Western Kentucky.

Another day, another dollar. Henderson finishes the regular season toting a sensational 72-1411-17 line and two more running scores -- and he missed a game to injury along the way. The 8-5 Bulldogs await their bowl assignment.

Louisiana Tech redshirt senior QB Ryan Higgins was thoroughly disappointing in Friday's 39-24 loss to Southern Miss, throwing three interceptions and failing to toss a scoring pass.

Higgins had thrown at least two touchdown passes in each of his first 11 games, but no such luck on Black Friday. No such luck and then some. Higgins entered this contest having thrown just four interceptions all year long and then proceeded to fall one pick short of matching that total. Despite this dismal performance, the 6-foot-1, 196-pound gunslinger has been magnificent on the whole this season, throwing for 3,706 yards with a 34/7 TD/INT ratio.

Louisiana Tech WR Trent Taylor has received an invitation to attend the Senior Bowl.

The volume that Taylor has put together over his collegiate career is astonishing, including over 200 receptions, 19 touchdowns and over 2,500 yards over the last two seasons. 2016 is turning into Taylor's most productive. The receiver does stand at just 5-foot-8, so his evaluation will be pigeonholed to the slot.
