Metric Analysis: Carlos Henderson has a very solid profile. Above average explosiveness, speed, and solid production. The only concerns are level of competition and flexibility. He played one of the weakest strength of schedules since 1969. And didn’t put up a dominate market share production season despite that schedule.

And with athleticism traits like Limas Sweed and Justin Hunter from a flexibility standpoint. There are plenty of concerns to consider that Henderson can be good, but not great. A player who looked excellent against weak competition. But could disappoint once he makes the transition to the NFL.
