Seantrel Henderson was coveted as one of the top offensive lineman in the country coming out of High School.  In college though, Henderson found illicit drugs and was suspended three times for Marijuana use.  With these suspensions and questions surrounding his character, Seantrel Henderson went from a blue chip lineman to a 7th round chance taken by the Buffalo Bills in this years draft.

Seantrel Henderson has a lot to prove again, mainly about himself and his character.  The Bills are giving Henderson 1 chance and if he screws this up he is out.

"“Even though that’s in the past – No. 1 player in the nation and all those things like that don’t mean too much – at the same time, I still came out like that and I feel I need to live up to that,” Henderson said. “And at the same time, I feel I’m just working and building, building and moving on forward to camp.”"

Henderson has seen reps with the first team offense, and even though it is only OTAs, that is still a big thing for Henderson.  He has also shown his talent and why he was ranked one of the top lineman in the country just a couple of years ago.

With Henderson’s performance last week, he may be not only looking at a spot on the roster but it could be a starting spot as well.  The Bills have some exciting depth on the line this year.  With Cyrus Kouandjio and Cyril Richardson also being drafted and these three coming into a line with anchors at LT and C with Cordy Glenn and Eric Wood respectively, the Bills have some options.  They have already looked at Chris Hairston at right guard.  Chris Williams was brought in to help with the line and Kraig Urbik and Doug Legursky are the incumbents at the guard position.  Right now I like (from left to right) Glenn, Urbik, Wood, Hairston, Kouandjio.  If Henderson or Glenn can move inside, you could look at Henderson, Glenn, Wood, Hairston, Kouandjio.

Either or these are big lines.  Henderson making strides is working out for both Seantrel and the Bills.
