    And dude I do not look at these players like I'm some type of scout or talent evaluator. A brother doesn't have that type of time to look at every college game. Bwhahaha

    In other words you have no idea if Henderson was good or not throughout his entire career. But he started for the Bills so he must've sucked.

    Dont you just love when you think a guy is going to be good all of the sudden other posters start using the words like All World and that kind of BS.

    I'm finding that it's impossible to have an honest conversation with these kinds of posters. Atleast when we disagree we can have an honest conversation.

    According to PFF and battleredblogs videos, he wasn't good. 33.9 grade in 2015.

    For what it's worth.

    The last time he had significant playing time was 2015. So even if he was good in 2015 I wouldn't pencil him in as starter like O'Brien has


    Cover 1.net also covers him here:

    https://www.cover1.net/bills-offensive-evaluation-seantrel-henderson/


    But his play in 2015 was on par with what he produced in 2014, Henderson seemed to struggle versus the pass.

    According to PFF.
    His 95.1 pass blocking efficiency percentage is tied for 17th overall, and just a point higher than 2014 (based on tackles playing 25% of the snaps). His struggles blocking led him to commit 7 penalties which was the second most on the team behind Jerry Hughes. Three of those penalties were offensive holding calls, one ineligible man down-field, one false start, an illegal use of the hands, one illegal formation and one false start (NFLpenalties.com).

    There was a slight improvement in his run blocking according to PFF.

    [​IMG]
    According to PFF.
    I know it may not seem like it given his 37.9 run blocking grade, but based on the raw grading data that PFF utilizes to get that final grade, he finished better this year than in 2014. His statistical grading looks rough, but he is a young player who was really raw entering the league in 2014. So you have to expect some growing pains.

    I know he wasn't good in Buffalo like I stated before. Meaning I seen him play in the pros not in college. Keep up old buddy. I know good and well that you're not following every freaking player throughout their entire career. Let's be 100 here.

    I never said I followed Henderson's career. I did follow him somewhat in college. I really like watching college ball, in fact much more than pro ball. Think what you want.

    Care to tell us what you think are Henderson's strengths/weaknesses since you obviously watched him more than I did while he was in Buffalo and most importantly what's his ceiling, since he really hasn't played much in the pro's.

    Total pressures 19 just over one per game, I'll take any day. I'll also take a 95% passing efficiency from a left tackle.

    So they are happy with what Gaine put together anyways. If not they would have added people already.

    This does not make any sense.

    Clowney is gonna hold out, he is not gonna play in this disaster of a season in the making. He has a vape shop to keep him afloat. :D

    KDog already posted his grades from PFF.

    I also watch a lot of college football as well. But I'm more of a sit back and watch the game for enjoyment. I do not have a pen and pad in my hand, watching every players so I can evaluate them.

    So, three heads have not proven to be better than one. What the hell are O’Brien, Olsen, and Easterby waiting for? They have done absolutely NOTHING after Gaine’s firing! Cal better be taking note of every damn thing or lack there of since he fired the GM. (Because what Gaine did wasn’t good enough, according to Cal.)

    This is dead season for making moves. What would you have expected them to do?

    Well, anything really. They fired Brian Gaine for not doing enough so one would think O’Brien and Co would have made a bunch of moves as soon as they had the power to. I hope Caserio has a HC in mind if Cal actually does a thorough evaluation.

    The draft is over and all the significant free agents are signed. There simply aren't many moves to make at this point. There will be opportunities once cut downs start.

    Nobody knows the real reason why he was fired. It could've very well been other reasons. Like fn with those black security guards who filed charges on the Texans.

    Trent Williams not expected to report to camp

    The Trent Williams saga in Washington appears far from over.

    The Redskins' left tackle skipped minicamp in June and is poised to hold out from training camp.

    NFL Network's Mike Garafolo and NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Monday on Inside Training Camp Live that the expectation at this point is that Williams will not report with teammates to training camp on Wednesday, per multiple sources informed of the situation.

    [​IMG]
    The issues with Williams goes back to a health scare suffered earlier this spring. Williams had a growth on his head that had doctors had to remove. Coach Jay Gruden indicated when the left tackle skipped mandatory minicamp that Williams was upset that the team physicians didn't catch the growth sooner.

    Rapoport also reported last month that in light of everything, Williams would also like his contract reworked.

    At this stage, the issues appear to be a little bit of all of the above. Garafolo noted that Williams' plans appear open-ended and it could take a while before the left tackle reports to the Redskins.

    If Williams stays away through training camp and into the regular season it would create a mammoth hole on the Redskins' offensive line. Not only is the 31-year-old Williams among the top offensive tackles in the entire NFL, the downgrade to potential replacement Ereck Flowers -- who flamed out with the Giants -- is Brobdingnagian.

    Rapoport added on ITC Live that Williams might have to undergo additional prceedures on his head to ensure everything is kosher. The left tackle would then need to be medically cleared before he can return to the field. Given the seriousness of the medical matter, Williams being cleared might not be a given, whenever he finally reports for work

    Let's offer what trade for DB was:
    We get Trent Williams and Washington's 2020 fifth. Wash gets our 2020 third and our 2021 second.
