fair ain't got nothing to do with anything
His helmet sits higher on his head because of his dreads
Yes. I do think he looks very good. He appears to have put on some muscle and size and he is scary quick. Hits the PVC quicker than any of the backs. I
Would not want to make a living tackling the big guy.
Hope the NCAA doesn't come out with a Henry rule...to lethal

I've been looking at high school prospects for 25 years. First time I saw Derrick in person, no pads, if you told me he was the #1 DE prospect (or TE or ILB) in the country, I would have believed it. He's that big.

Sorry to rain on everyone's parade but I'm pretty sure Tom Luginbill said that DH wont be able to be an effective RB on the SEC level due to his size and running style.

That, my friends, is why he holds the all-time high school rushing record. MAN among boys! He's got a good head on his shoulders too. It's just insane to see the physical tools, then add a hunger/desire to be the best ever. Watch out ladies and gentlemen, this will be a fun 3 years or so with Mr. Derrick Henry!
Wow #3 is huge. Can't wait to see him run.
I'm not saying he reminds me of Herschel, I'm not ready to do that but I'm mentioning it.

I agree size and speed very similar. He is going to be special if he stays focus....
Hey now. Easy.
I saw him in the mall a few days after he got on campus. He was so big he just looked weird walking around normal people. I stopped and talked to him. Very good kid and very humble. He told me he was glad to be there and all he was waiting on was to get to work in the off-season. He will be great for us.
What is Fowler hiding in his left sock??
While I cant wait to see DH run the ball.... I highly doubt that is Fowler standing next to him.
Once again Saban is a genius... Saban knew the NFL was going to propose a new rule about running backs not lowering their head and he knew it would change the college game as well so he has cornered the market on huge RB's that will never actually HAVE to be successful by lowering their head.
