Derrick Henry Timeline

Has 262 in the first half
I'm starting to warm up to him as a player for us. I still like Jones better than him. Might like Henry over Tenpenny though.
He will be a solid H-back in college
If wilder can play RB DH definitely can
Wilder is also 4 inches shorter than Henry
Thought Wilder was 6'2?
Wilder will likely measure out at 6'1 at the combine

False, Wilder dominated both sides of the ball against real competition
Henry hasn't gone against one solid football team in his entire career and is far too goat to even try and play defense
Wilder is a true 5 star, Henry is a solid 4 star with no real position
Plus running in the SEC is much harder than running in the ACC, my guess is Henry plays anything but RB in college

fsufsu said... I've got about 10 great stories on Lane but all you need to know is he will never be a loser, that's for sure.
So he's a wuss because he wants to concentrate on playing RB at the next level. You should join jimbo's staff, he could use the help.
Yup, Wilder played both ways against much better schools and won 2 almost 3 state titles
The 3rd year he was the only good player on Plants team, and like a true football player he did everything he could in order for his team to win, he also did all of this while knowing he would be a RB at the next level
The scare of injury didn't outweigh his desire to win, unlike Henry who clearly only cares about himself
Hell yeah he will.
And with the all time national rushing leader NOT playing running back at Alabama.....just think at what the talent level at running back at Alabama must be like
10 Major Poll National Titles (CFB record)
35 Bowl Wins (CFB record)
72 Wins over last 6 years (CFB record)
Maybe enough to beat ATM next year?
Suggs 2.0 imo
Watched DH live a few times.
Great athlete but not a physical player, at all.
His running style doesn't fit the SEC
Not flaming cause the kid has talent.
At another position.
Comparing him to Wilder in HS is for posters who don't know chit about football
Wilder is physical. Henry isn't. Basic analysis.
What team do you pull for? Just curious. Thx
doesn't matter, its obvious to anybody who follows florida high school ball and understands the level of talent Henry sees each week
Wilder was a freak of nature that dominated the best of the best.... on both sides of the ball
Henry is a freak of nature who plays like Jane against a whole bunch of Mary's..... on offense only

If only we could have kept it close like y'all did against scar
And like 20 pounds lighter. JWJ ain't a tiny RB either so that's saying something.
Yeah Henry playing RB is just ridiculous, and expecting him to beat out the kids Bama already has and will continue to sign at RB is even more ridiculous
And Henry falling for Saban's lies just prove how stupid the kid is, he will never play RB at Bama in a meaningful game
At home? Also, we never proclaimed ourselves the greatest team in college football history.
I'm a Noles fan.
Has nothing to do with how I see Henry.
We were never going to get him.
You got a good athlete but he isn't comparable to Wilder in HS. Not even close.
Gonna be playing D2 or D1 AA in a few years.
Wouldn't shock me at all unless he finds a home on offense
Its a shame a kid that big can't play defense at all, and imo that shows that he isn't a very good football player
Somebody that size should just rip heads off, especially considering the talent he plays against.... yet he doesn't, that is alarming to me
I feel the same way. Kid is already bigger then pretty much every LB in high school and can run pretty well so he should be able to knock kids heads off.
