[THEME MUSIC PLAYING]

TANK WILLIAMS: "The best cornerback that I've ever coached." that's what CJ Henderson's defensive coordinator said about him, and that was after his freshman year.

Now, on the upside, he's tall, fast, a menacing blitzer from the backside corner and always seems to end up with the ball in his hands.

Now, on the downside, consistency is the main thing he needs to work on. Footwork, tackling, route recognition. But this can all be cleaned up with good coaching and reps.

Henderson's size, speed, and explosiveness, places him in the category of the likes of Byron Jones. If he can live up to that comp, he will end up being a very productive player in the league. And rich as hell, too.
