Hunter Henry’s Pro Day Results:

40-yard dash: 4.66 seconds
Vertical: 31 1/2 inches
Broad jump: 9 feet, 5 inches
Short shuttle: 4.41 seconds
3-cone: 7.16 seconds
Bench: 21 reps of 225 pounds

Strengths:

  • Size
  • Strength
  • Solid run blocker
  • Great hands
  • Deceptive speed

Analysis: I’ll be the first to admit, I did not watch a lot of Razorback games the last three years when Hunter Henry was on campus, and thought the hype surrounding the draft’s No.1 TE was a bit over-blown. I was wrong. This kid is going to be a Pro Bowl caliber player from day one. His run blocking is already elite, and his technique shows little flaws. His father, Mark, played offensive tackle for Arkansas from 1988 to 1991, serving as a team captain his senior year. Hunter didn’t make it to his senior year, however, choosing to enter the 2016 NFL Draft after a spectacular junior season where he won the John Mackey Award as the nation’s top tight end and garnered consensus first team All-American honors. He did not drop a single pass last season showing great hands for a player his size. He is able to secure contested catches and eminent hits won’t scare him away from the catch. He surprisingly has the speed to outrun linebackers and can get vertical quickly.

Weaknesses:

  • Route running

Analysis: Hunter Henry is the first prospect I had difficulty finding a serious weakness. I ‘copped-out’ a bit, putting route running down because occasionally, I saw him come out of his stance high and make rounded cuts in his routes over the middle. Once he gets with his position coach at the next level that should be fixed quickly.

NFL Comparison: Antonio Gates

Draft Projection: 1st round
