Chris Henry School: West Virginia
Ht: 6-4 Wt: 197 40: 4.50 Year: 3Jr
Bio: Two-year starter awarded All-Conference
honors as a junior after leading West Virginia
in receiving with 49/811/2. Posted 41/1,006/10
the prior season.
Positives: Nice-sized receiver
who wins out in battles and breaks games
wide open. Fluid releasing off the line, strong
enough to defeat jams and sells pass routes.
Extends to catch the ball away from his frame
and plucks the throw out of the air. Possesses
soft hands, adjusts in traffic for the errant throw
and tracks the deep pass well. Uses his size
as an advantage and offers the quarterback a
nice target. Excellent eye/hand coordination.
Effectively body catches when called necessary.
Sturdy receiver who makes the difficult reception
in a crowd, takes a pounding and holds onto the
Negatives: Slows into routes and waits for the
ball to come to him rather than moving back to
the pass. Occasionally peaks up the field before
making the reception. At times finishes the play
by scampering out of bounds. Lacks the deep
speed or ability to run to the long throw. Very
much a "me" player who, at times, acts like a
child on the field and is very immature off it.
Analysis: From a physical and football stand
point, Henry possesses all the tools necessary
to be a number one wideout at the next level.
Offers size, natural receiving abilities and
athleticism to be productive in the NFL. Yet the
situation is diametrically opposed when looking
at his attitude as Henry cannot control himself at
times. Natural talents give him a huge upside for
the next level, yet the poor attitude makes him a
very risky prospect.
