09:20 AM ET 03.31 | There have been encouraging signs this spring from Miami offensive tackle Seantrel Henderson, who said "I've matured a lot. In the past, I made a couple decisions that might have caused me to be in the doghouse from [Al] Golden. Now, I've been top of everything, watching film more, doing everything right academically. I've been better on the field and off." Henderson said the NFL Draft advisory board told him he would not have been picked in the first three rounds if he turned pro this year. Making himself a first-rounder "drives me a lot."

Interpretation. I've matured from a tantrum throwing two year old to a know it all teenager.

Still have a little ways to go.

Making himself a first rounder is what drives him? What about win one for the team. Doesn't he love his team more than anything?

And read into it that a 5-6 rounder as a pay cut for him

No, he doesn't. He is one if those guys that will piss away his money. If he ever makes it.

And what team in their right mind would consider drafting this guy? He finally wants to improve for the sole purpose of improving his draft position. On other words, he wants the money and once he gets that money he'll be back to being the same old under-performing apathetic player. How many examples could we find in the NFL of this? He has been in the doghouse and I'm not sure if he has even played. If he thinks he can get by on his high school talent in the NFL he's going to have a rude awakening. This story just raises all kinds of red flags about this guy. And yeah, the previous poster was correct...as soon as he gets drafted he'll spend all that bonus money then slack off until his next contract. If the only thing that can get him motivated is to improve his draft stock what does that tell you about his engine and work ethic. I think I'd pass on this kid. He's been nothing but one pathetic story after another.
