Chris Henry   WR   West Virginia
Strengths

Chris is a tall, long-legged WR that has very good speed and quickness. He is quick in and out of his breaks and shows an excellent burst to separate from the CB. He is strong and shows a good set of hands. Chris is excellent after he catches the ball and is very hard to bring down. Chris has the physical talent to impact at the next level in his first year and be a #1 WR for the team that drafts him.

 
Needs to Improve

Chris has serious maturity problems and does not take coaching from authority figures very well. He takes downs off and is not a team player. Chris will not be a consistent impact player at the next level. He wants to be a star, but doesnít want to work at it.

 
Talent Board Round  3

Chris is the type of kid that will show up for the first year of his contract and then you wonít see him on a consistent basis until the last year of his contract. He thinks he is a #1 WR because of his talent, but he has no clue what it takes physically and mentally to be a #1 WR in the NFL. Let me give you a hint, Chris, on what it takes: 1st - you must show up for work on time and in football shape!  Then, you need to work for hours with your QB and coaches on how to run routes and the timing of those routes! Then, you have to work with the other receivers and your teammates. Then, you must learn your position from the eyes of your QB and learn to read defenses.  Add all of that to acting like a good human being off the field and you might someday get to be a #1 WR in the NFL. You see, Chris, if I pay you five million dollars a year, I expect you to work hard for it.  Personally, I pass on Chris and let somebody else have the headaches. Iím funny like that -- I like team players.
