Chris Henry RB 6' 233 Arizona Jr.

Ran a 4.33 and hes 233lbs.
I dont know much about him other than he did not play much his firt 2 years because he was backing up Mike Bell, However, at 233 lbs, and an amazing 4.33 I think I would like to see him in black and gold.....

This is an article from NFL draft and rumor:
Henry was a seldom used reserve his first two seasons, backing up Mike Bell. He ran for 278 yards and two touchdowns as a freshman and sophomore. As a junior, he shared backfield duties, but ran for 581 yards and seven touchdowns, and also added 197 yards and a touchdown on 21 catches as a receiver.

Chris Henry has all the physical tools you could want in a running back. He has excellent size, is strong, athletic, and fast. He runs well between the tackles, and can be a workhorse. He also shows the ability to make the first defender miss, and the speed to turn the corner and break off big runs. Henry also developed into a legitimate receiving option out of the backfield this year, and showed very good hands as a receiver.

For a player with his talent level, he has never put up the numbers to back it up. Backing up Mike Bell obviously limited what he could do early in his career, but he didn’t seize the prime opportunity laid out in front of him this year to be the feature back.

Chris Henry will pop up on a lot of people’s sleeper lists. He definitely has the talent, but is somewhat of an unknown on the field because of his limited success. He is a player that could really make a name for himself once the workout portion begins. He may be a player that just could not put it together in college, but thrives at the pro level. He is a player to keep an eye on in the draft.

I don't know much about the kid either, but if he backed up Mike Bell (who has been a fumble machine for the Broncos) I wouldn't spend a real high pick on him.

4.33 at 233 lbs sounds about impossible. although both willie and bell were UFA's the fact that this guy was even invited to the combine says something. he wont go under the radar if those numbers are correct. everybody will be thinking "terrel davis" and he could fly up the charts like wr matt jones did.

anyways lets see how many people reply:

dont look at him... we dont need anyone named after a bungle

Yeah... when I saw the title I though "OMG NO!" But now it's all good. Although I'd laugh if we did get the good one and his number would be 15. That would be creepy. He might be good, if he has potenial this might be a good place for him.

My biggest concern would be that he'd keep getting arrested because the cops would mistake him for the other Chris Henry :smile:

Maybe he should carry a special ID then. Something that dictates what team he is on "Team: Pittsburgh" :smile: He should be fine as long as he doesn't go wandering off in Cinci or travel alone on gameday when we are up there, that is is we even pick him...

Trust me I am a Pac-10 guys you don't want this guy... He has Lamont Jordan syndrome... As soon a any contact comes he falls down...I watched his games and he never looked that quick, I think he is much slower with pads on.

so he could just be a workout wonder, or he could be raw and un polished. some team will take a gamble on him based on his nunbers alone. after all the steelers took a gamble on willie based on speed alone. i just wonder how far henrys workouts have moved him up peoples boards. probably to the 7th-9th rb taken which would probably put him as a 4th or 5th rounder.

I would take him in the 5th if hes still on the board

well, he is definitely no longer "off the radar"

http://nfl.com/combine/story/10023516



The most asked question right now is: Who is Chris Henry? The answer is he is a running back from Arizona who entered school there in 2003. He was hurt early on and then in 2004 and 2005 he never started but played some. In 2006, he got in a couple of starts but was still mostly a reserve. In high school, he won the 100-meter track championship at Stockton High School in Stockton, Calif. But until this year, he had never really played much in college, starting only a couple of times this year. If you look at all the draft books, you see that he's nowhere to be listed in any of them.


So why all the interest? The 5-11, 230-pound running back notched 26 bench presses (second best for runners), the second-best 10-yard time at 1.51 (Oklahoma's Adrian Peterson was 1.54), and he ran the 40-yard dash in 4.43 seconds. The way he worked out created an unbelievable amount of interest. He was definitely the most talked about prospect in the city of Indianapolis last night.

I'm not sold on Henry. Yes he performed well at workouts,.....but his onfield production on the collegiate level was virtually non existant. I would'nt be against possibly giving him a look on the second day. But even then it would have to be after we had (by perhaps with some daring) addressed our most pressing needs.

i'd pass on him, i rather us draft tony hunt.......hunt didn't have a great combine but who cares, i don't remember ever seeing a running back run a straight line with no pads and no one not trying to tackle you, so the combine and pro day mean nothing to me, i rather look at what they do in actual games and hunt actually played with some heart.

everything i read on henry makes me like him less, he's a punk when it comes to contact


Strengths:
Very good athlete with an outstanding blend of size and timed speed...A strong runner who does not go down easily...Has a terrific burst...He's able to run up the middle or kick it outside and turn the corner...Has the ability to be a solid receiver out of the backfield...Does not have a lot of mileage on his tires...Still has upside.

Weaknesses:
Does not have much starting experience and he never carried the load...Was not very productive at all in college...Not overly tough or aggressive...A questionable motor...May have character concerns...Runs too high...Impatient runner...He's not shifty or elusive...Sub par blocker...Doesn't play up to those great physical tools.

Notes:
Classic workout warrior who "Looks like Tarzan, Plays like Jane"...Has all of the physical tools you look for but to this point has been an underachiever...Entered the draft after his junior year despite a less than impressive on-field resume...He will likely get picked much higher than his production would indicate thanks to the show he put on at the Combine but it will be based almost solely on his potential.

don't try to compare him to willie

henry had a chance to be something but he never took advantage of the opportunity

willie never had a chance cause the coaches didn't like him

We need help at DE,LB,OL,and WR before we go drafting some RB who almost never played in college.

Here is info on Henry from Scout's inc. Sounds like a late round or undrafted free agent. Didn't we draft someone out of Virginia last year that sounded like this. I'd rather spend a 3rd or 4th and get a quality backup/big back to pair with Fast Willie.

Strengths: A big, strong back with lots of mileage left on his legs. Shows good initial quickness and burst through the hole. He possesses above-average straight-line speed for his size and can bounce some runs outside once he hits the second level. He shows the ability to push the pile when he runs with good leverage and lowers his shoulder. He will bounce off would-be tacklers and displays an effective stiff-arm. While he needs polishing in the passing game, he does display soft hands and the ability to adjust to poorly thrown balls.

Weaknesses: Lacks ideal starting experience; he was never the fulltime load-carrier in college. Not overly elusive and won't make many defenders miss in space. He is impatient; will run up the heels of his linemen and also looks to bounce plays outside too early. He is big and strong but doesn't consistently run with good pad-level and takes too many shots to his body. He's not a great route-runner, and his pass-blocking technique is marginal. We also have concerns about his competitiveness after his decision to leave school rather than compete for the starting job at Arizona in 2007.

Overall: Henry appeared in two games in 2003 as a true freshman before injuring his leg and obtaining a medical redshirt. In 2004 he returned to appear in all 11 games (zero starts) and finished the season with 159 yards rushing and two touchdowns on 56 carries (2.8 average). Henry played in all 11 games again in 2005 (zero starts), rushing 34 times for 119 yards (3.5 average) and also contributed on special teams. Henry played in 11 of 12 games in 2006, earned seven starts and finished with 165 carries for 581 yards (3.5 average) and seven touchdowns. Over the past three seasons he has caught 25 passes for 191 yards and one touchdown.

Henry is a big back with good burst, but his inexperience, lack of elusiveness and impatience are glaring. Henry is very much an unproven commodity, but he displays enough promising characteristics to warrant a gamble in the mid-to-late rounds.

I have heard some talk about him and read some decent things but i would say if he doesnt get drafted then we can bring him in and work him out after the draft. Sounds like an Austin Scott to me (PSU fans know who im talking about) No thanks, on Chris Henry 2!!!
