The NFL Draft talk never ends, and we are here at Draft 412 in an effort to keep you ready for the next set of gridiron stars. From today until draft night 2024, we will bring you mocks, profiles, team needs, and everything else related to the 2024 NFL Draft.


Today’s Spotlight - Ohio St, RB, TreVeyon Henderson


Name- TreVeyon Henderson

Pos- RB

Team- Ohio St.

HT/WT- 5’10” 215 lbs.

Born- 10/22/2002

Home – Hopewell, VA


TreVeyon Henderson starred at Hopewell High School in Virginia. He rushed for over 4,000 yards and scored 50 touchdowns in his career. He was rated a 5-star recruit by both ESPN and 247 Sports. With the choice to go wherever he wanted, Henderson committed to Ohio State.


In 2021 as a freshman, Henderson played in 13 games for the Buckeyes and ran for 1,248 yards on 183 attempts for an incredible 6.8 yards per rush, with 15 TD’s. He also added 27 receptions for 312 yards.


Henderson only played in 8 games his sophomore year as he was hampered by torn ligaments and a broken bone in his left foot. Henderson, despite playing only part of the season, was still able to rush for 576 yards and 6 TD’s.


Henderson once again missed some time with injuries and only played in 9 games for the Buckeyes. Despite his injuries he still ran for 854 yards and 11 touchdowns.


Henderson has a good burst to go along with good lateral movement, sidestepping opponents and picking up extra yardage. Henderson very rarely gets pulled down behind the line of scrimmage. He has good vision which helps him to find cut back lanes and create big plays. He’s got good contact balance and footwork which allows him to be patient before planting his foot and bursting through the hole.


He has above average speed which allows him to outrun angles, and he keeps his pads low, always falling forward. He finishes his runs violently and never quits moving his legs. Henderson is a weapon in the passing game, too, excelling out in the open field, and is a natural pass catcher.


Henderson does not add anything to pass protection. He looks uncomfortable at times, trying to cut block, and seems disinterested in stepping up and hitting a defender. In the passing game, he has good speed, but does not separate in the open field from defenders. Lastly, the foot problems from last year could be a red flag to some teams, so this season will be crucial to show them that everything is ok.


Strengths

  • Good initial burst and lateral movement

  • Good vision and balance

  • Uses hands well, will be a weapon in passing game

  • Never quits, gets the most out of every carry

  • Cut back ability is top notch


Weaknesses

  • Horrendous blocking skills

  • Does not have elite breakaway speed

  • Injury concerns, needs to prove foot is fine


Final Analysis


Tre'Veyon Henderson is a running back who can be overlooked at times, sharing the backfield with other stars at Ohio State. He has shown Draft Nation enough to know he is an excellent 2nd day draft pick.


Prediction- Round 2-3
