Summary:Recognized for his size, many expect Henry to make an immediate impact on a team's running game. Despite being bigger than most running backs, he takes advantage of long strides, speed and explosiveness.
Henry wasn't a full-time starter until his junior year, but many will say that's no reflection on his talent. Henry shared playing time with Jaguars running back T.J. Yeldon in 2013 and 2014, still tallying 172 carries and 990 rushing yards as a sophomore. As a true freshman in 2013, Henry played in 12 games and totaled 382 rushing yards, including 17 first-down conversions.
Stacking up: NFL Media analysts Mike Mayock and Bucky Brooks each listed Henry as the second-best running back prospect in their pre-combine position rankings, and Daniel Jeremiah ranked Henry 34th overall in his 50 top draft prospects after the combine.
In the record books: Henry holds the national high school football record for career rushing yards with 12,124, breaking Ken Hall's 51-year record. On Dec. 5, 2015 he broke Herschel Walker's single-season college rushing yards record in the SEC. During the 2016 College Football Playoff National Championship game, Henry broke Shaun Alexander's record for most career rushing yards in Alabama history.
