Seantrel Henderson: The Next Big Thing In Football

Michael WebbContributor IFebruary 22, 2009

Seantrel Henderson, in case you are unfamiliar, is a 6-foot-8-inch 303-lb. offensive linemen who is probably the best football player in the high school class of 2010.

He's been compared to the best OTs in NFL history already, including Jonathan Ogden, Walter Jones, Tony Boselli, and Orlando Pace. He currently holds offers from at least 20 schools, among them Ohio State, Florida, Minnesota, and Notre Dame, the latter of which is in front.

What is so special about Henderson? There have been tons of overrated offensive linemen that were compared to the greats but didn't deliver. But Henderson is considered an athletic, finesse linemen with a mean streak. 

Scouts say he could easily grow a few more inches and add much more weight. It is not impossible that he may end up 6-foot-10-inches and 345 lbs. by the time he enters the NFL draft. Right now, his size, quickness and footwork separate him from the rest of the linemen in his class.

This is a lot of pressure to put on a high school junior, but Henderson is the real deal. He is so athletic that some scouts say he could be a Division I basketball player if he wanted. That is how athletic he is. Mark my words, who ever gets Seantrel Henderson is getting the next great OT.
