Scouting Report

If you couldn’t already tell from his measurables, Henderson has a big frame. What makes him stand out, aside from his size, is the enviable athleticism that he pairs with that frame. Fleck and tight ends coach Clay Patterson seem to covet versatility in their tight ends, valuing players who can have catch and block or at least have the ability to develop or improve one or the other. Physically, Henderson looks the part and has the right combination of size, length, and athleticism. but he’ll need to develop more consistency in his run blocking to be the complete package.
