Ourlads' Profile:

2020 Guide: What Ourlads' Scouting Services said about CJ HENDERSON: Florida, 6006 204 4.39. Junior entry, three-year starter, Miami, FL. First-team All-SEC in 2019. Played boundary corner with a variety of technique. Played press and off in both zone and man. As a press corner was mostly reactive at the snap but occasionally flashed a stiff off-hand jam. Patient in reactions he rarely gave up leverage. As a hard corner was quick to sink under deep routes and react to the short flat throw. In off coverage played with a big cushion and used a traditional controlled pedal. Fluid in transition he can easily turn and run with vertical route. Smooth to mirror route breaks. Has the speed to stay in phase with a speed receiver. As a zone defender got a good read on the release and the quarterback. Sudden to break on the ball with timing to get his hands to the catch point. Can undercut a route to get to the throwing lane or make a big hit on the catch. Has recovery speed and has made some plays on the ball from behind. Gets to the high point on interception opportunities. Willing tackler but lacks consistent technique. Often comes in high or lunges. Had several misses after the catch. Inconsistent re-routing as a hard corner. Whiffed with his jam at times. Some inconsistency with route combinations in zone. Can get his focus on one receiver losing sight of another threat to the outside zone. Some inconsistency finding the ball in phase. Cushion can be too big at times and will give up a play underneath. Was more consistent in coverage in 2018 but his tools are that of an elite corner. Will need to develop consistency but he can play in any system. 2019 stats: 33 T, 3 TFL, 1 sack, 11 PBU, 1 QBH. OSR:2/29. First round. (A-31 5/8, H-9, VJ-37.5, SS-DNP).
