    What do we make of him as a NFL prospect? Where does he go?

    I only know Flounder was supposed to land him for us and he failed.

    Trent Richardson proved spending a big draft pick on a RB isn't a good idea.

    A couple draft analysts I follow on Twitter don't believe his game translates to the NFL very well. They're probably wrong.

    He'll do well on a team committed to running and giving him 25+ touches a game.

    Dallas or Seattle then. Nobody else seems to be interested in running their RB into the ground like that.

    He is an upright runner, I would be wary. I actually think Kenyan Drake is the guy to watch. Injury history, so he will come cheap.

    Does Henry have the speed you need at the next level at his size?

    Has the speed, lateral quickness is questionable. If you put him and TJ Yeldon side by side, Yeldon is the better prospect IMO.
