The Denver Broncos, with the 203rd pick in the sixth round of the 2017 NFL Draft, selected Coastal Carolina running back De’Angelo Henderson.
Broncos with No. 203 overall pick in 6th round take: DeAngelo Henderson, RB, Coastal Carolina. #9sports— Mike Klis (@MikeKlis) April 29, 2017
Henderson scored a touchdown in the last 35 games he played in, which was an FCS record and was the 2015 Big South Offensive Player of the Year. Like the Broncos first round pick, Garett Bolles, he will turn 25 this year.
The Broncos got an explosive pass-catching running back, that is the kind of player Mike McCoy had in Danny Woodhead. CBS Sports likes his game and how it will translate into the NFL.
IN OUR VIEW: Henderson is more than just a big fish in a small pond. His versatility as a runner, receiver and returner warrants Day Three consideration and could help him carve out a nice "little" career at the next level.
COMPARES TO: Danny Woodhead, San Diego Chargers: There is only one man in the history of college football with a longer steak of touchdowns scored in games than Henderson and that is the similarly built and determined Woodhead, who scored in 38 consecutive games for D-II Chadron State. Like Woodhead, Henderson's value lies with the shiftiness he provides as a runner and receiver, as well as underrated power due to their compact frames and leg drive.
