Quote :
Alabama RB Derrick Henry clocked unofficial forty times of 4.52 and 4.54 at the NFL Scouting Combine.

An absolute freak of nature athlete, Henry also posted a 10-foot-10 broad jump and 37-inch vertical at 6-foot-3, 247 pounds. As noted by Rotoworld's Josh Norris, Ameer Abdullah earned the highest SPARQ score among running backs at the 2015 Combine. Abdullah had the same broad jump measurement as Henry, but did it at 205 pounds. That's 42 pounds less than Henry, whose forty-yard dash time was superior to Abdullah's (4.60)

Is he Brandon Jacobs, or is he more?

I totally see Brandon Jacobs in the way he runs. He isnt a pass catcher. Once you stack the box, I dont see him gaining more than a couple of yards per carry.

Ya I feel he will be more valuable for an NFL team vs a FF team. He is a good blocker and will be used alot but I don't see him making a big impact without an ability to catch. Also his smallish hands scare me. Anyone know if he had a fumbling problem in college?

In college he ran the ball 395 times and lost 1 fumble. Averaged 5.6 YPC, but caught 16 balls in 3 years. no

And that was with Amari Cooper, TJ Yeldon, Sterling Shepard and Kenyan Drake to name a few. How many chances you expect his big ass to get?

laughing Just throwing it out there, I don't believe he will be catching many balls on someone's fantasy roster either...

Agree. He will be more valuable in standard scoring.

He will be used more as a Fullback in my opinion. The guy is a waste of a FF draft pick. If he lasts in the 5th round I might give him a shot.

Im actually trying to trade out of this whole draft class after seeing some of the combine. So there is a chance I will not be picking 1.3.

Since they are shitty draft picks in a bad draft anyway, I will take them from you. 5WB's a piece, just for you!

Watch Henry just rip the NFL up.

It might be good for the Titans in real life, but that really muddies the fantasy and dynasty waters... I am glad I am not invested in Murray in any of my leagues...

Terrible for them both, really. Unless Murray really is done, then Henry might be okay. Really hurts him short term and his draft value though.

Still think he will be more of a FB, and Murray will get tons of opportunities and all the catches.

That bong looks good. Let's just hope Henry pulls a T-Rich.

Henry is not a FB, he is a better RB than Murray has ever been and should have no trouble earning the lion's share of the carries in TEN...

So Henry is better than Murray ever was. So Henry could have 2300 yards, 57 catches, and 13 TD's in one season... Simple statement I guess, wishful thinking.

I am sure many people said that about T-Rich too.

Murray is massively overrated, the year he did that with the Cowboys he was the beneficiary of maybe the single greatest season ever by an offensive line unit.... I believe it is not a stretch to say that ANY other NFL RB (starter or not) could have put up similar numbers in that role that season. Every time I watched the Cowboys play, Murray had huge holes and wide open lanes to run through, he was often in the secondary before having to cut or even being touched... That OL was responsible for those stats, not Murray...

The Dallas OL didn't have as good a year last season (and Romo being hurt didn't help) but they still made jackoffs like Randle and McFadden look like relevant NFL RB's despite the fact that they were anything but... And what happened with Murray? Oh yeah, he went to Philly and struggled hardcore while being outplayed by Ryan Matthews!

My statement that Henry is better than Murray is of course my opinion... Perhaps I should have specifically stated it, but my statement is based on raw talent and athletic measurables... I absolutely believe that Henry is a better prospect than Murray ever was, freak size/speed/athletic combos like Henry don't come along that often, especially not ones who dominated at the highest level of college football like Henry.
