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!!!
