Bio: 
Two-year starter who received Second Team All-SWAC honors as a senior. Transferred from Southern Miss to Alabama State. Finished his senior year with 35 tackles, one sack and two blocked kicks. Was invited to the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl.
Pos: 
Explosive nose or zero-technique tackle for the next level. Plays with excellent pad level, fires off the snap and works his hands throughout the action. Easily redirects to ball handlers, possesses a solid closing burst and is tough to stop once he gets a step on opponents.
Neg: 
Looks overweight and poorly conditioned. Rarely makes plays down the line or outside the box. Struggles to get off blocks once engaged.
Analysis: 
Henderson is a penetrating defensive line prospect built like a nose tackle but is someone who must properly condition himself and improve his overall playing strength to have any chance of making an active roster.
