NFL Network analyst and former NFL scout Daniel Jeremiah praised Bills rookie tackle Seantrel Henderson for his play as a first team left tackle through the first three weeks of training camp. Jeremiah wrote the following on NFL.com in his article, 10 NFL rookies who will exceed expectations in 2014.
Draft position: Round 7, No. 237 overall
Henderson’s physical talent has never been questioned, but he struggled to live up to his potential while at the University of Miami. He had numerous off-field issues in college, and his work ethic was a major concern. The Bills took a flier on him in the last round of the draft, and, so far, it’s paying off nicely. He has looked polished at left tackle while running with the first-team offense. And with his size (6-7, 331), length and quickness, he could start on either side of the offensive line.
Other rookies mentioned in the piece include Tampa Bay RB Charles Sims, Miami WR Jarvis Landry and Cleveland CB Justin Gilbert.
