Henry, like Georgia's Todd Gurley, has extremely impressive lateral explosiveness for a big back. Henry is not draft eligible, but he might be Alabama's best running back. And that is not taking anything away from T.J. Yeldon. Aug 30 - 8:08 PM

NFL scouts "are already salivating about" Alabama sophomore RB Derrick Henry's pro potential, according to's Bucky Brooks.

The 6-3, 238-pounder runs a 4.52 second forty, a 4.15 second pro-agility shuttle, and a 41-inch vertical. Henry is "an athletic freak with a hard-charging running style that strikes fear in the hearts of defenders at the second level," according to Brooks. "Most impressive, Henry displayed soft hands as a receiver and surprising agility for a man of his size." Henry's every-down ability will appeal to pro scouts, but he isn't eligible for the draft until 2016. "Given the lack of big, athletic backs among the collegiate ranks, Henry's rare combination of size, speed and skill has already piqued the interest of NFL scouts looking for a dynamic workhorse to build around," wrote Brooks.

Alabama freshman RB Derrick Henry rushed for 100 yards and a touchdown on eight carries in the school's 45-31 loss to Oklahoma.

Henry is technically the school's third string running back, and he suffered a fractured tibia during spring practice, but he was an instant impact in this game. Henry is a ridiculous athlete and is very explosive, both in the open field and when dealing with contact. He added one catch for 61 yards and a touchdown.

Alabama freshman RB Derrick Henry suffered a fractured tibia during the school's spring scrimmage.

Henry's high school coach added that surgery was performed and a plate was inserted. It appears as though Henry will be healthy enough to fully participate in the Crimson Tide's summer camp. The Alabama backfield is already packed with talent, and Henry likely won't be relied on during his freshman season.
