The 3rd round selection out of Florida Atlantic could not only provide some intense competition but could be an outstanding performer for the Saints this coming season. When Hendrickson was at Florida Atlantic he was phenomenal. In 36 total games, Hendrickson compiled 125 total tackles, (68 solo), 41 tackles for a loss, and 29.5 sacks. When watching film on Trey Hendrickson there are a lot of aspects of the athlete to enjoy.

Although Hendrickson isn’t the strongest, I think his success in the NFL could come from his variety of movements and techniques. Hendrickson’s various techniques and abilities allow himself to always keep his opponents guessing. In the National Football League, where there are several premiere offensive linemen, it’s a great advantage to know what you succeed in.

Hendrickson is a dynamic, physical athlete who has amazing talent. Even though Hendrickson has shortcomings, it doesn’t phase him. Trey uses what he knows best, and excels at to his advantage, despite his minor flaws. The explosiveness, athleticism, and God-given-talent that he showed at Florida Atlantic should thrive pretty much anywhere.

Everything Trey Hendrickson did well and succeeded at will hopefully allow him success as he transitions into the National Football League. With everything going for Hendrickson as this season approaches, this is one athlete I’m personally rooting for.

2017 Season Sack Projection: 

3-7 Sacks

Reason:

Trey Hendrickson is obviously a talented athlete. With his lethal swim move, Hendrickson will prove to be a threat for opposing linemen.

Now at this point, I’m not quite exactly sure what impact Hendrickson will have during his rookie year. With the presence of Alex Okafor, Hendrickson could be used rotationally or simply would have a diminished role. I will say this though, if, given the playing time, Hendrickson will find ways to succeed, guaranteed.
