  • WR prospect for 2008 draft

    Marcus Henry from Kansas a fourth year sr.
    good size 6'-4" 210 lbs. I don't have a 40 time on him. Number don't stand out but have improved over the four years. Also look at yard avg. for this year at 18.1 not bad. Worth a look for FA or 7th round.

    Stat Overview Receiving
    YEAR REC YDS AVG LNG TD
    2004 8 85 10.6 21 0
    2005 17 183 10.8 35 0
    2006 25 316 12.6 33 3
    2007 38 686 18.1 66 4

    What does anyone think?

        Matt, do you have a 40 time on him?

          No, but I remember watching him vs. Nebraska and he just didn't have much explosion.

          Probably runs anywhere from 4.55-4.65 but I can't confirm that. Just based on game speed.

                Explosion can be improved by doing surtain drills like a 20 yard dash that needs a good explosive start to get a good time. also by strengthening his calfs, and working on reaction time to the snap with his current quarterback. So while that is a concern it is not a huge concern. His 40 time can also be worked on. Right now he is at Joe J (Cleveland Browns Wide Reciever) speed. Late rounder in my view.

                  You either have explosion in college or you don't have it in the NFL. No player just gets faster.

                  Yes training can be improved, but the athletes are trained so hard at the college level it doesn't make a big difference.

                      Actually 4-5 had hours of work and film a day in collage is not as hard as 9-10hours of that in the pros. It wont be an immediate improvement but he will gradually improve if he works hard enough at it.

                        To an extent you are right, but practically speaking you are very far off and it is why Dwayne Jarrett fell to the mid 2nd round last draft.

                            And it is why he was a 7th round pick.

                            Look, for every Marques Colston, there are 50 Martin Nance's.

                              9-10 hours a day? Unless a large part of that is film there's no way this can lead to physical gains. I used to row a bit, and even the top guys (i.e. the Olympic gold medallists) wouldn't train much more than 5 hours a day (on average). Football is a much more anaerobic sport than rowing and therefore surely their maximum gains would be from high-quality low repetition training.

                              But I definitely agree with the point that if you don't have it in college, you're not suddenly going to blaze in the NFL. Workout warriors aside, who in effect become super-specialists at their craft, a halfway decent high school training program followed by a good collegiate one, and these guys will be at their top speed by about 21. This may develop slightly (look at the age of the guys in the 100m final - around 25) but we're talking maybe 0.05 secs in the 40 tops.

                              The only times you might see a 40 time change dramatically are when (a) the athlete had never run a 40 before and was unpractised at the technique, or (b), if he wasn't a football player in high school and was converted, then maybe he wouldn't have done too much anaerobic work and has a little "cap room" for improvement.
