Ourlads' Profile:

2016 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about DERRICK HENRY: Alabama, 6025 247 4.53. Junior entry from Yulee, FL. One year as a full-time starter. Heisman Trophy winner. Has rare size, speed, and athletic ability. A closer type back who wears down a defense with his body blows and ability to get stronger and more effective as the game goes on. Not a creative runner, but when he sees an opening he can burst through a crease in the defense. A runaway train when he gets up ahead of steam. Can drop a tackler with a violent stiff arm to ward off a tackle. Has some pick ability from tackle-to-tackle but lacks great lateral quickness. A long-limbed running back with a powerful upper body. Plays in a multiple pro power blocking zone downhill running offense that highlights his strengths. The best way for Henry to get around the end is to follow his blockers in a power sweep then cut off their blocks. The leggy runner is not explosive to and through a quick closing hole, but rather forces a defender to make a business decision on how to tackle the 247-pound power back. A faster than quick type back who is not easy to tackle one-on-one, especially in the open field. Some defensive backs fly around like a BB in a boxcar after the train hits them. Defenses will try to stop him on the NFL level by deep backfield penetration and force him to go lateral. He struggles when he has to run sideways. Not quick and nimble-footed on cuts. Best fit is an I-formation downhill inside runner. A pile mover who is durable. Henry is a willing blocker and has better hands than advertised. 2015 stats: 2219 yds, 5.6 ypc, 28 TD, 11 rec, 91 yds, 0 TD. OSR:8/24. First/second round. (A-33, H-8 3/4, BP-22, SS-4.38).
