Is Florida’s C.J. Henderson now considered the second-best CB in the 2020 NFL draft?

C.J. Henderson

Florida junior C.J. Henderson has gone from a potential first-round pick who needs to improve his tackling to the likely second or third cornerback selected and a virtual lock for the first round.

And while he still gets nicked in various scouting reports for his tackling, his Combine performance simply underscored just how athletic Henderson is.

Translation: Teams can live with his suspect tackling, but you can’t teach those other intangibles.

In fact, only Ohio State’s Jeffrey Okudah’s measurements were more impressive than Henderson’s.

  • Size: 6-foot-1, 204 pounds (81st and 88th percentiles, respectively)

  • Vertical jump: 37 1/2-inches (71st percentile)
  • Broad jump: 127-inches (82nd percentile)
  • Bench press: 20 reps (90th percentile)
