The last time a Rainbow Warrior football player was selected in the NFL Draft was back in 2015 when former running back Joey Iosefa was selected in the seventh round by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
But it’s very possible that this year’s draft could put an end to that streak as former ‘Bows safety Trayvon Henderson might hear his name get called over the weekend.
The Green Bay Packers hosted Henderson heading into the draft after an impressive showing at the Senior Bowl, according to Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
Henderson was a defensive standout during the Senior Bowl with numerous NFL scouts and coaches in attendance to watch and recorded many highlight-worthy plays including a spectacular one-handed interception during practice.
During Hawaii’s Pro Day, Henderson ran the 40-yard dash in 4.54 seconds while recording a 39.5″ vertical, 10-4 broad jump, 6.88 in the three-cone drill and 4.04 short shuttle, according to Tony Pauline of Draft Analyst.
In 49 career games, Henderson racked up 237 tackles, 18 tackles for losses, nine interceptions, 22 pass breakups, five sacks, two fumble recoveries, two touchdown returns and one blocked kick.
The 2018 NFL Draft begins tomorrow with the first round, followed by Friday and Saturday's later rounds.
