Robert Henson

Washington Redskins




Strength: Robert Henson makes good reads during the course of a play. Robert Henson is a consistent run stopper. Robert Henson is strong
Weakness: Robert Henson is a bit small for a middle linebacker, and not quick enough for pass coverage on the outside. Robert Henson wasn't a dominating player against average competition.
Development: Robert Henson has a relatively good idea about what he's doing on the field and will be expected to know all of the linebacker positions and play special teams right from the start. He will need to get in better physical shape and work on his technique to make an impact in the NFL. Long-term, he best figures as a middle linebacker, where he is strikingly physically similar to Fletcher and Blades. He doesn't have the athleticism to start at OLB. His career path should follow that of Blades, except that his best hope this season would be 3rd on the MLB depth chart. If he does all that is asked of him at a high level, he has a 50-50 chance of making the roster as the last linebacker. If he is unclaimed, there is no doubt he'll at least make the practice squad.
Fantasy Football Rating: No impact in the near future, but will make plenty of tackles if injuries somehow make him a starter.
Typecast Outlook Opinion: Productive, smart player. Special teams prototype.
