Derrick Henry Hasn’t Decided Yet on NFL Future
GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Derrick Henry hasn't yet decided if he will forgo his senior season at Alabama to enter the 2016 NFL Draft.
Henry gave a simple "no" when asked about his NFL future after Alabama's 45-40 win over Clemson in the College Football Playoff National Championship Monday.
Henry rushed for a game-high 158 yards and three touchdowns in the Crimson Tide's win -- its fourth national championship in the past seven seasons. He also set a few records in the win, including Alabama's career rushing yards record.
For the season, Henry, who won the Heisman Trophy last month, rushed for 2,219 yards and 28 touchdowns on 395 attempts -- all school and SEC records.
Henry is projected as a first- or second-round draft pick and the No. 2 overall running back behind Ohio State Ezekiel Elliott among draft-eligible running backs for the 2016 NFL Draft, according to CBSSports.com.
