Dude is blessed. 6'3" 240 and jumping like this. I am all for dude playing running back and I think he could be VERY good at that position, but I saw/heard the comparison the other day of him and tight end that is in the league now. May have been on here. Any one like to guess who it is?
If he wants to play RB then more power to the kid. He'll be a great one here.
Comparing Henry and an NFL TE.
Henry - from "The Opening"
6'3" 240lbs - 4.54 - 42" vert
NFL TE - from combine
6'3" 253lbs - 4.38 - 42" vert
With Henry here, and in our S&C program, he could post same numbers and be at same weight. Weight may be less since he is gonna play RB and may not build mass to play TE. Glad to have this guy in Crimson.

Built like that with 4.3 speed has to be Vernon Davis.
Whatever happens I really like his work ethic and attitude. Combine that with god gifted ability and size is a great combo.
I like him at RB, but if he keeps growing and getting taller, he could outgrow the position.
But right now ill take an athletic 6'3" 240 ponder at RB and be happy, similar in size to Eddie George.
Hey me too, but I can't help but think about what kind of TE he would make. We already have OJ, so....
Damn, we're loaded.
I'm ready to see him on our basketball team right now, driving right up the middle and hurting people's feelings.
Nobody on the basketball team can do what he is doing in that picture ( not on that level at least)
How tall was Bo and Herschel? Weren't they about the same size? Imagine the possibility.

What Jalston Fowler was doing for us last year is what I see Henry doing for us eventually. Give him 5-10 carries a game, 2-3 passes, and line him up at fullback/h-back to block for Tenpenny, Kamara, Drake, and Jones.
I've never seen that pick before, damn he's got major ups! This kid can do it all. I can see him in Fowlers role as well. Block, receive, run... Wherever he ends up he'll excel IMO.
"Nobody makes me bleed my own blood, nobody!"
Bo and Herschel were both around 6'1-6'2 220#.
I can see Fowler....in Fowler's role....
Is that pic real ?
Regardless of where he plays I believe he has an opportunity to redefine that position as we know it...who cares how you get him the ball or where he lines up in getting it...just ensure it gives us a competitive advantage.
I've thought about this a while now and will put it out there...this type of player is our answer to the spread. IMO I believe the league would prefer to keep its current QB types and evolve the offenses a both vertically and horizontally. I think this type player, and OJ Howard type players give you this...you see it in the league already with best example being Gronk, Hernandez, Brady, and the other receivers,RB's he has. If that offense is 100% healthy it is hard to impossible to stop
