NFL Media analyst Bucky Brooks noted that Alabama RB Derrick Henry "needs to room to be effective, but [NFL] teams employing zone-based blocking schemes could view him as the best option in the class."
Ohio State's Ezekiel Elliott is viewed as the consensus best back in the 2016 field, but after he's off the board (Elliott's a possible first-rounder), Henry could be next up to see some love. Brooks called the 6-foot-3, 238-pound Heisman winner "a big-bodied "one-cut" runner with exceptional speed and athleticism," then went on to suggest that the former Tide star might appeal most to an NFL squad that runs a heavy zone-blocking scheme. Teams that fall into this mold would include the Denver Broncos, Green Bay Packers, Washington Redskins, Houston Texans, Kansas City Chiefs and Seattle Seahawks. Jan 29 - 10:49 PM
