Default Chris Henry

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:

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

Maybe he should carry a special ID then. Something that dictates what team he is on "Team: Pittsburgh" 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...
