The Buffalo Bills, along with a couple of other teams, finished up their OTAs this weekend. OTAs were three days long, and just a couple of teams are still in them or just starting them this week. Either way by the end of this week, teams will have finished their first workouts with their newly signed rookies and undrafted free agents that were invited to take part.
For the Bills, there was an introduction to the facilities at One Bills Drive along with working out some of the players to start to get a feel for the offensive schemes and some techniques, especially for linemen.
Seantrel Henderson is glad that there was no hitting during these first workouts.
“Learning the plays right now and all the calls and the things we’ve got to do on the field, you’ll be in your stance thinking a lot about what you’ve got to do and things like that and then go hit the guy,” he said. “Now we’re just working on the footwork and the calls and where we have to go and who we have to block which I think this is a good thing right now. So once OTAs and minicamp do come it’s no more thinking, it’s just go.”
This is a good sign for the Bills if Henderson keeps this attitude up and stays in good standing. Henderson was a projected first round OT last year, but with issues off the field, his stock fell dramatically and ended up being drafted in the 7th round. First round talent in the 7th round. I would take that gamble. If Henderson gets in line, he could be a great asset to this Buffalo Bills offensive line. Henderson was seen playing most of his time at LT during the OTAs. Could be a great backup to Cordy Glenn come the start of the season. If he is able to play both right and left, I would have him first man in and drop Erik Pears to third string.
