Running Back on the Radar

The Dolphins lost a lot of depth at running back in the offseason when both Sammy Morris and Travis Minor left via free agency. Now that there's little left on the roster behind starter Ronnie Brown (because Ricky Williams still isn't back on the team just yet), there's a distinct possibility the Dolphins will pick a running back in the draft. And we can tell you one guy they're interested in.

According to Scout.com's Adam Caplan, running back Chris Henry from the University of Arizona will have a bunch of pre-draft workouts for teams, and the Dolphins are among those who will be checking him out.

Henry opened some eyes during his NFL Combine workout last month after running a 4.41 40-yard dash despite weighing 230 pounds. He also did other drills well. The feeling is that Henry helped himself so much that he went from being an early second-day selection to a second- or third-round pick.

The Dolphins currently have four of the first 71 selections in the draft, so it wouldn't be a shock if they spent one of those on Henry.

Henry entered the NFL draft as an underclassman because he didn't like the way he was used in the Arizona offense last season and because of concerns the team's new offensive coordinator will employ a pass-heavy offense.
