NFL draft prospect Seantrel Henderson reportedly failed drug test, previously quit during pro day workout

Shutdown Corner

Seantrel Henderson is bombing his NFL pre-draft interview process, and he is the only one to blame.

Henderson was once considered the No. 1 football prospect in the country, and eventually signed with the University of Miami. He was suspended three times in college, but Henderson is better known for recently quitting during his pro day workout, which was blamed on dehydration.

Just when Henderson did not need another question about his character, he allegedly failed a drug test at the NFL scouting combine, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

So let’s get this straight.

Henderson knew NFL teams might be concerned about his past, which meant he needed to pull the “young and dumb” card to convince scouts those troubles were behind him. As Henderson is preparing for the combine, the biggest evaluation process of his life, for some reason, he thought it was a good time to fire it up?

Come on, Henderson.

There is a very good chance Henderson will not be drafted because of all these red flags. Heck, some teams may not want to take a risk on him as an undrafted player. If Henderson cannot avoid trouble with so much on the line, teams have to worry about this player showing less concern after rewarding him with a contract.

At this rate, Henderson may look for redemption in the Canadian Football League.
