TreVeyon Henderson will lead one of the best duos in football at Ohio State

One of the youngest at his position in this potential draft class is TreVeyon Henderson out of Ohio State. He has shown some great numbers in the past, which include both the passing and rushing parts of his offense. Things went sideways for him last season after he struggled with a torn ligament in his left foot, which is now healed.

Not everything will be easy for Henderson to return back to his freshman form back in the 2021 season. Miyan Williams is his fellow Buckeyes teammate and had a successful year while Henderson was away with an injury. That could complicate both of their roles, which could cloud some of Henderson's production when it is all said and done.

It is slightly concerning with the ligament injury and the effect that it could have on his game. He will have to prove to everyone that he is healthy and better than ever in terms of production and tape that he puts out there. The Steelers love Ohio State products, and Henderson could be an interesting piece to bring into the building if he falls.

He will hope to get back to the numbers that he posted in his freshman year, which is not unreasonable to imagine. C.J. Stroud is no longer in that offense, so it is possible that Ohio State leans more on their duo at running back to take some pressure off the incoming starter. Henderson is an explosive back and should be able to stay in the first-round conversation.
