Isn't afraid to play in the slot, is patient off the line keeping his body square in his backpedal and takes good angles on passes under him.
Possesses only average straight-line speed when asked to turn and run, but is physical in man, does a nice job getting a bump initially and can re-rout receivers and throw off their timing if they try to run by him. Exhibits some natural fluidity in the deep half as well when asked to get over the top.
However, isn't real instinctive in any area of the game. Doesn't get many early jumps on the football, has a tendency to stop his feet when trying to read and react and takes himself out of far too many plays.
Isn't a real ball hawk or playmaker at this stage. Now, has only played the position one year and has some room to grow, but he's a very reactive player at this stage, not proactive.
Generates a thump into contact when attacking the line of scrimmage. Squares his shoulders well, brings his legs and there is a snap into contact.
Is patient as a last line defender as well, using the sideline to funnel ball carries, but isn't overly aggressive and again, never really seems to be on the offensive, doesn't quite trust himself to just let it lose at this stage.
Impression: A good-sized kid with some natural cover skills and range, but is still learning the mental nuances of the game. It will be interesting to see how he develops during his second season as a safety. But as of now his skill set says potential starter."
Instincts and play speed are just average, takes some questionable angles and tackles low.
Overall game lacks explosion and violence."
Has good size and speed and is a good tackler and special teamer; still learning the position though and isn’t all that instinctive; suffered a severe knee injury in 2008 and is a slightly older player who will be 24 as a rookie."
His limited experience at safety will prove to give general managers and scouts the idea that he still has more development to come at the position. Henry exhibits good patience with his footwork and lower half.
Many cornerbacks are too quick to open up their hips but Henry is very disciplined. In exchange for that discipline though is that he does not get a jump on the ball with regularity. He will need to be in the video room often, studying his opponents tendencies rather than relying on athleticism.
As a tackler, he isn't afraid to mix it up but lacks that aggressive streak coaches like to see out of the safety position. Henry will flow to the ball, but he won't explode and needs to learn to keep his feet moving and active.
When he fully understands the position, he has the potential to be a solid reserve but simply lacks that attractive, elite natural ability that many other safeties possess."
