Offensive tackle Seantrel Henderson came to Miami as one of the most heralded offensive line prospects in recent memory. The first offensive lineman to win the USA Today High School Player of the Year, Henderson has all the physical skills to be an immediate impact player for a Falcons team that needs all the help it can get up front.

Henderson failed to live up to expectations in Miami because of off the field issues. Suspended three times at Miami for violating team rules, he will likely slip in the draft because teams are afraid he’ll never put it together.

For his part, Henderson has said all the right things heading into the draft process. And, on the surface at least, appears to be ready to mature into a reliable player.

This is the kind of guy that can fall in the draft and be a find for the team that scoops him up in a later round. The chances that a pick in the sixth or seventh round turns into a starter are extremely rare, the fact that Henderson has the size and skills to be a regular contributor should make him the top of the list of sleepers for the Falcons in the draft this spring.
