Greta job and appreciated as always.

Like to seem Lynch that high, really like him. Much more of a brute force guy but could be a perfect type of Swiss army DL player. More burst and quickness than I expected but not elite EDGE type speed, think he has tools to build on and is a high effort/energy guy would could move from 1 to 5 technique given the situation. Seems like a fit but not sure he would make it to 56 and 39 seems a bit high though his college coach picks before Miami so it may be a moot point.

What are your thoughts on him?
Effort guy with short arms. I gave him the benefit of the doubt based on production. I think he'll be more effective working against guards in the NFL than he was against tackles in college. I think you have to kick him inside a gap from where he was at Baylor and let him work half a man on the outside shoulder of a guard.

Henderson seems to fit the mold of DB Flo and company like. Long, athletic and physical would fit right in. If things fell to where Miami kept all 3 1st rounders CJ at 18 is a dream.
I can’t use the word physical when describing Henderson. He might make the occasional physical play but has an aversion to contact most of the time.

supremely talented though - smooth as can be

I meant more with receivers at the line, and moving them off their route. As a run game supporter you are correct its not worth mentioning because it basically doesnt exist.

Assuming Flores like the kind of DB's the Patriots prefer then tackling is important.

Flores / the staff may see these guys and think they can coach up the tackling aspect though

I was checking the SPARQ archive today. If anyone wants a reference toward how bad this defensive line/edge crop is in relation to a typical year, it was front and center in those athletic testing numbers. In 2018 there were a combined 22 players who tested at 70% level or above, in comparison to the average NFL player at 50%. Last year there were a combined 25 players at 70% and higher.

This year there are 5

Granted, we had test skippers like Chase Young, and canceled pro days. Far fewer full performances to draw a SPARQ score. But 5 at this stage after a full combine is ridiculous.

I would stay away from those positions unless absolutely certain, or extreme value later
