If Henson had picked football over baseball, he most certainly would have been the first pick. He had all the tools but being away from the game for so long hurt him.
Too bad but I'm glad we didn't spend years with him as QB waiting for him develop. And I firmly believe that if Jerry had his way, Henson would have been starting, Romo would be playing elsewhere and we'd still be looking for a QB.
