Coastal Carolina is a school located in Conway,Authentic Allen Robinson Jersey, South Carolina. It has an enrollment of over 10,Womens Joey Bosa Jersey, but it’s not exactly known for producing NFL stars.,Womens Dan Fouts Jersey,000 students
A handful of players have made it to the professional level after playing for the Chanticleers,Authentic Dalvin Cook Jersey, De’Angelo Henderson., including running backs Mike Tolbert and Lorenzo Taliaferro. The Denver Broncos decided to use their sixth-round pick in the 2017 draft to grab another Coastal Carolina running back
Taken with pick No. 203 of the draft, but the team likely saw him as nothing more than a practice squad guy during his rookie season., Henderson was a guy the team decided to take a chance on to add depth to the running back corps
But Henderson was tremendous in training camp and preseason games. He stood out above just about anyone on the team during the preseason, they parted ways with veteran running backs Stevan Ridley and Juwan Thompson.,Womens Allen Robinson Jersey, making it impossible for the Broncos to cut him. Instead
Heading into the regular season,Authentic Joey Bosa Jersey, it seemed the Broncos had a guy they could bring into games to provide a spark and catch unsuspecting opponents off guard. But that never materialized.
Instead,Authentic Melvin Ingram Jersey, Henderson was put on the gameday inactive list just about every week of the season as Vance Joseph and his staff apparently didn’t see a reason to play him.
Henderson finished the season with just 15 yards rushing on seven carries. Five of those rushing attempts came in the season finale against the Kansas City Chiefs. But in that game,Womens Melvin Ingram Jersey, prompting Broncos fans everywhere to ask “where was this all year?”, Authentic Dan Fouts Jersey,he caught a pass from Paxton Lynch and made some nifty moves before turning the play into a 29-yard touchdown
In 2018,Womens Dalvin Cook Jersey, Henderson needs to be given much more of an opportunity. Devontae Booker hasn’t exactly blown anyone away with his performances in two seasons and Jamaal Charles almost certainly won’t be back.
It’s hard to judge Henderson’s rookie year based on the small sample size we were given, what would have hurt to play him?, but what we didn’t see can be placed directly on the coaching staff. When the season was deemed a total loss
I like Henderson and feel he can be a difference maker for the Broncos. He really flashed in the preseason so rather than grading him negatively for his lack of opportunities, I’ll look at this grade positively due to that fact.
