Draft Profile: Florida CB CJ Henderson

22 January 2020 DRAFT


CJ Henderson 2020 NFL Draft Profile

Measureables: 6’1 205

Jeffrey Okuda is the consensus CB1 but CJ Henderson may just be the consensus CB1B. This kid is special. He started as a true freshman and has dominated ever since. Henderson finished his collegiate career with 93 tackles, 26 passes broken up and six interceptions in 33 games played. If you had to name the shadow following WRs, you’d name it CJ. He’s that good. His leverage, size, and techniques remind me of pro-bowler Tre’Davius White, but unlike White, the kid can fly. The play that really caught my attention was when a South Carolina receiver on the other side of the ball broke loose and CJ ran 50+ yards and hawked him down. That’s the type of player every team needs.
