Peterson impresses, Henry surprises

Adrian Peterson put up an impressive unofficial 4.38 40-yard time at today's combine which should solidify him as the top RB and a lock for a top ten pick.

Marshawn Lynch's 40-time was less impressive. Lynch was looking to run a sub 4.40. Instead he ran an unofficial 4.52. (Lynch's official time was 4.46)

The fastest unofficial 40-time was turned in by Chris Henry of Arizona. Henry blazed a 4.33 40-yard dash. At 6' and 230 pounds, Henry is an intriguing prospect. Henry was a seldom used reserve his first two seasons at Arizona and only put up 581 yards last season as a junior. He looks to have all the physical talent, but where was the production in college?

Arizona's Henry to leave for the NFL draft

University of Arizona starting tailback Chris Henry will declare for the NFL draft, he confirmed Monday afternoon. Henry cited a lack of playing time early in the season as a key reason for making his decision to leave.

Henry has a good combination of size (6-1, 230-pounds) and speed (some report a 4.4 forty), however he didn't produce at Arizona. The junior rushed for 581 yards on 165 carries this season, an average of just 3.5 yards per attempt. He'll need to have an impressive post-season circuit to hear his name called on the first day of the 2007 NFL draft.
