Carlos Henderson, WR, Louisiana Tech

5'11" | 199 lbs.

2016 stats:

82 receptions, 1,535 yards, 19 TD

Projection:

Second-to-third round

Scouting Report:

"One-year superstar who delivered monster numbers at Louisiana Tech this year before leaving school early. Plays outside for the Bulldogs, but a little smaller than most teams will like. Henderson excels on catch-and-go throws and nine routes. He lacks the route running to come in and be an effective threat right away, but his kick return ability could get him early work." — Lance Zierlein, NFL.com
