2016 NFL Draft Scouting Notes: Hunter Henry, TE, Arkansas
It won’t be long now and the college season will be in full swing, and instead of scouting notes you will find full and much more detailed scouting reports. Until then, we continue with scouting notes. As always these notes are based on previous year’s film and will precede the full report that you will be able to find right here on NFLDRAFTDIAMONDS. Here are my notes:
Hunter Henry. TE. 6’5. 253 Lbs. Arkansas. (Junior)
1) Henry is a willing and able blocker
2) Has good NFL size
3) Has good catching ability
1) Needs to improve his run after catch ability
Hunter Henry is possibly the top tight end in the country this year. He may not do anything exceptionally, but he does everything very well. He is a willing and able blocker and an integral part of the run game for Arkansas. He has good NFL size, and he can catch the ball pretty well. He is comfortable working the middle of the field, and not afraid to take a hit. He does need to improve his run after catch ability, and to this point he hasn’t been a main target in the passing game, but that very well may change this season. If he has a good season catching the ball, he will be high on the watch list for NFL scouts. Of course, he is only going to be a junior this season, so he may not enter the draft at all.
