Report: Derrick Henry Will Enter 2016 NFL Draft
The most decorated running back in Alabama history will end his collegiate career after three seasons according to reports.
ESPN's Joe Schad, citing a source, tweeted Thursday that Derrick Henry will forego his senior season to enter the 2016 NFL Draft.
The Heisman Trophy winner said following the national championship that he had not made a decision about his future.
The list of records that the Yulee, Florida native set is as long as his 6'3" stride. His junior season alone included a single-season rushing record for Alabama and the Southeastern Conference. He finished all 15 games of the 2015 season with a touchdown and broke Trent Richardson's single-season touchdown record by seven.
Henry dominated the college football awards by bringing home the Heisman, Doak Walker Award, Walter Camp Award, and Maxwell Award in 2015. That was after he had already won the SEC Offensive Player of the Year and the SEC Championship Game MVP.
There aren't any draft projections out yet for Henry, but ESPN analyst Mel Kiper has the All-American second at the running back position behind Ezekiel Elliot.
