Former Northwestern safety Traveon Henry reportedly agreed to sign with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers as an undrafted free agent, according to multiple reports. He will join Northwestern teammate Dan Vitale, who was drafted in the 6th round.
Henry saw the field in all four years of his Northwestern career, anchoring the secondary for three seasons and contributing on special teams each year. He earned Academic All-Big Ten honors his senior season, and was also a captain for the winningest team in school history.
Despite playing running back in high school in Florida, Henry emerged as a stalwart for Northwestern's secondary. He finished his career with 247 total tackles, 10.5 tackles for a loss, and three interceptions while starting 32 games.
On the field, Henry doesn't wow you with speed or athleticism, but he's an effective tackler and can defend the run well. He's never afraid to challenge an offensive lineman or fullback at the line of scrimmage, and will take the hit to make a play.
Henry projects to remain a strong safety, and he'll now hope to make the transition to the NFL and earn a spot with the Buccaneers. For more on Henry, here's our scouting reporton him, and here are highlights from his impressive Northwestern career.
