An NFL scout said Alabama RB Derrick Henry "is Eddie George" but added that the "dilemma will be, can he play in today's spread?"
As quoted by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, the scout called Henry's running style "leggy." "In the NFL he will have to get his pad level down," a different scout said. "He runs too high." Not everyone is concerned. "If he gets going north-south you better bring it, because he's going to get yards after contact," a third scout said. "If it's muddy in Green Bay and it's the championship game and you've got to control the clock, I want Derrick Henry in my backfield." A fourth chimed in: "Doesn't have all the things you want but he's a 4.5 big guy who has some jump cut, some movement. He's a bitch on the perimeter. It takes him a minute to get rolling. You can get him early inside. But if he gets to the second level he's a man. And he proved he could catch in the workout." Apr 26 - 7:53 PM
