Dolphins planned to pursue Henderson post-draft


The Miami Dolphins weren't going to draft Seantrel Henderson, but their interest in him was still there -- to a degree.

According to Barry Jackson of The Miami Herald, the Dolphins planned to offer the massive former University of Miami offensive lineman a contract if he cleared the draft.

Henderson, however, was scooped up by the Buffalo Bills in the seventh round.

The now 6-foot-8, 345-pounder was considered one of the nation's top recruits out of high school, but a string of drug-related suspensions and inconsistent play in college, despise his size and showing some serious flashes, hindered his draft stock.

Henderson, who failed a drug test at the NFL Scouting Combine, is a low-risk, high-reward project for the Bills, as he still has much to prove in order to even make it out of camp.

If he doesn't, the Dolphins could have a second shot at him.
