Seantrel Henderson knows he is on a short leash in Buffalo.
Despite the fact that he has first-round talent, Henderson slipped to the seventh round of the draft because of his questionable work ethic and decision making.
Back in 2010, Henderson was the top-rated high school lineman in the nation, per Omar Kelly of the Sun-Sentinel. Also per Kelly, Henderson admitted that he was suspended three times from the University of Miami's football team due to marijuana use.
Henderson then went on to test positive for marijuana at the NFL combine, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.
Henderson has to be humbled by the fact that he almost missed out on getting drafted due to his poor decisions. The Bills have strong leadership in Doug Marrone, Eric Wood and Kyle Williams. They will do everything they can to keep Henderson on the straight and narrow.
He almost doesn't have a choice. Henderson knows if he screws up, he will get the proverbial pink slip. If the Bills cut him loose because he still isn't fully committed, it is doubtful any other team will take a chance on him.
Therefore, Henderson's talent will win out and he will find himself on the roster Week 1. Who knows? With his talent, he could eventually even contend to start.
