08:31 AM ET 02.16 | This week's NFL Combine will be important for Miami's Seantrel Henderson after drawing mixed reviews at the Senior Bowl. "Great in practice, awful in interviews," said one NFL scout who met with him at the Senior Bowl. "He couldn't draw up formations. He just doesn't get it. Not very alert or aware. But he did very well in one-on-one drills and someone will take a shot at him in the second or third round."

Maybe a little. You would think after playing all these years for the Canes, just to stay in sync with the rest of the line, that he would at least be able to understand and draw basic formations and schemes. If he couldn't do that, how does he play without major scrooooups all the time?

Not at all.

Maybe he just processes differently? Did they try some action figures that he could move around on a table and talk to?

Maybe he'd apply himself better if given alternate motivation.

I think negative reinforcement may work better - learn these formations or get a job sweeping floors for $7/hr. They'll soon find out how much that scholarship is really worth after that first paycheck.

What's FICA?

He was a senior so does anyone know if he received a degree? He'll likely need something like that to fall back on.

You know Seantrell was a Buckeye lock until a couple weeks before signing day 4 yrs ago. He waffled and I remember telling my daughter its for the better that he move on. He certainly is one 5* (he was #1 Rivals kid I believe) who did not live up to the rating.

But seeing that naked left arm of his I can't help but wonder might we have been better off being the Tatt Six instead of the Tatt Five.
