    Draft E.J.'s younger brother?

    E.J. Henderson's younger brother, Erin Henderson, is in this years draft and at the NFL draft combine. Many experts have him in their top 5 outside linebackers in the draft.

    Here's an article about E.J.'s brother:

    http://www.vikings.com/NewsArticle_ohbrother22408.aspx

    A little info about Erin Henderson:
    University of Maryland. 6′3″, 236 lbs, 4.70 40-yard dash.
    Very good size and speed. Has very good instincts and can deliver big hits. Tough player.
    Downside - Injuries may be a concern. Needs to improve his coverage skills.

    In other words: pretty similar to his older brother


    Wouldn't it be awesome with E.J. in the middle and his younger brother on the outside for the Vikes?
    I know most of you guys are not too happy with drafting a LB, but if he falls to us in the 3rd round, how can you resist?

    As far as drafting him, I don't know enough about college players to say who's good or not unless I base it off what I read.

    But I can tell you I'd rather draft a talented player based on his merits & not draft someone just so he can play next to his brother.

    Darnit! I checked before to make shure I was the first to post it,
    but I guess I didn't look close enough.

    However, the person who posted the article yesterday didn't seem to get any response.
    Hopefully this will!

    That would be me. I posted the article as general information in the 2008 Combine thread & not as a "Let's draft this guy" thread.

    Did you use the search feature or just look at thread titles? If you ever need help using the "Advanced Search" feature, just drop me a PM & I'll be glad to help.

    Since you posted it as a "Draft possibility" thread, it warrants a new thread, IMO.

    You'll get responses as to what others think.
