2014 NFL Draft: Seantrel Henderson Tests Positive For Marijuana


Seantrel Henderson was a name you saw being placed at the top of a lot of early mocks, but concerns about his character quickly torpedoed any chance the offensive tackle had of being considered as a top 10 player.

If there was any chance of a draft stock resurgence for Henderson, it all evaporated with the news that he has failed a drug test. Adam Schefter says NFL teams have been notified that Henderson failed a test for marijuana at the combine.

Long before the failed test, there were already concerns about Henderson’s maturity and work ethic. A total physical best, Henderson underachieved at Miami while collecting red flags at an alarming rate.

Early belief that teams might be willing to take a shot with Henderson early in the first, overwhelmed enough by his upside to overlook the other worries, has given way to the stark reality that Henderson would be a terrible risk.

Now the talk is that Henderson could fall all the way out of the draft. The UDFA road would still be open if he wanted to pull it together and take a shot at restoring his career.

Mike Zimmer’s past history of helping seeming low-character wash-outs will lead many to speculate that the Vikings could take a flyer on Henderson.

From potential top-10 pick to UDFA reclamation project? The pre-draft process can be so cruel sometimes. And it doesn’t help when guys demonstrate their don’t-give-a-crap attitude by lighting up too close to the combine.
