Strong Points

Very quick off the ball, explosive with good hand use. Can put moves together or stay low and bull rush. Has the strength at the point to hold up versus the run. Good pursuit speed and angles. Strong offseason; very good East-West Shrine game and excellent Combine have pushed him up draft boards. Has enough athleticism to play on his feet.

Weak Points

Marginal size for a 4-3 defensive end, arms are a bit short for a 3-4 DE, has no experience playing on his feet. There are flashes on tape where he is a non-factor.

The Way We See It

In the NFL, clubs pay a premium for pass rushers and that is what Hendrickson can do. Has 23 sacks over the past two seasons. Showed how explosive he can be at the Combine. Weighed in at 266 pounds and he should be able to play down as a DE in a 4-3 but more than likely he will play on his feet. Showed that he can drop into coverage when he has to. Because of athleticism, speed and pass rush talent, he may get over drafted. On tape, looks like a third- to fourth-rounder, but it wouldn't shock me if he is now a solid third.
