Draft stock rising: CJ Henderson clocks impressive 40-yard dash time at NFL Combine
Florida CB CJ Henderson is a first-round prospect as the 2020 NFL Draft quickly approaches.
And, if his performance in Indianapolis at the NFL Combine this weekend is any indication, he’ll continue to rise up draft boards thanks to his speed and versatility.
As you can see in the video below, Henderson ran an unofficial 4.39-second 40-yard dash on his first attempt on Sunday:
NFL.com analyst Daniel Jeremiah loved that run from Henderson, saying he’ll end up in the top 15 if he keeps it up:

In Jeremiah’s first mock draft back in January, Henderson was projected to go No. 20 overall to the Jacksonville Jaguars. Based on his buzz in Indy, he could be off the board before that point.
