Gator CB Henderson to skip senior season, bowl game

By  | 

GAINESVILLE, Fla. University of Florida junior cornerback CJ Henderson posted on Instagram on Friday his intention to forgo his final season of eligibility and enter the 2020 NFL draft. Henderson is a projected first round pick.

Henderson added that he will also sit out Florida's bowl game, which has become a trend for draft-bound players in recent years.

As a junior, Henderson did not make any interceptions but did break up 11 passes and has six career INT's in 27 starts.

As a sophomore, he was voted second-team All-SEC and will be considered again when the 2019 awards are announced.
