Second DT could doom Henderson
By Paul Kuharsky
Back-to-back offensive tackles last year. Back-to-back defensive tackles this year.
D’Anthony Smith out of Louisiana Tech with the 74th pick, on the heels of Tyson Alualu 10th overall, certainly suggests the end of the John Henderson era in Jacksonville.
Adam Schefter said earlier Friday the Jaguars were willing to listen to offers for Henderson. Over the last two years, he’s not been the guy people used to fear and I’m not sure what kind of value he has now.
But with a young group in Alualu, Smith, Terrance Knighton and Atiyyah Ellison, I am thinking they're not looking to be five deep on the interior.
Matt Williamson of Scouts Inc. thinks Henderson could draw a fourth rounder in a trade.
“He is on the downside though,” Williamson said. “Maybe use him in a rotation at his new team.”
Anybody want to play matchmaker?
