This guy is one of my top late round upside picks. There aren't many guys late in the draft that have the same type of potential as Chris Henry. I could see him surprising and winning a starting job in that offense this season in place of either Coles or Johnson if an injury or a decline in play happens to either. I think Henry is similar to Brandon Marshall, in that if you give him the targets he is going to put up the numbers. Henry is a better player than Marshall and has more big play ability, so really the sky is limit for the guy if he gets the playing time.

Physically, Henry looks quite similar to R. Moss - tall, slim, elite speed, and great hands. Lethal vertical, deep threat, and a great zone target on jump balls and fade aways to the corner of the endzone.

Word out of Cincy is that Henry has worked extra hard this offseason. Perhaps he himself is thinking about snatching the #2WR spot on that team.

He's a definite target for me. It will come down to opportunity and it seems as if Palmer and the organization is willing to give him a shot. I recall last year when they cut him that Chad came out and stated how "incredibly talented" Henry is. I'm hoping that he finaly matured at 26.

So what round are you guys targeting him at? I've been seeing him going very late in drafts, 12th - 15th round. I'm shooting for the 13th.

Better late round pick, Harvin or Henry? I think Henry.

I've been getting Henry in around the 12th - 15th. Mostly the 13th though. I like Henry over Harvin. Whose throwing the ball to Harvin? Rather go with Palmer throwing it to Henry than Jackson or Sage throwing it to Harvin.
A win next week and all is forgotten.

His value is so dependant on Palmer that you have to believe Palmer will bounce back if your going to draft him. I like the Up/syde but I'm still on the fence with Palmer and bengals in general.

Guess I'll have to keep an eye on them during the preseason.....setting my DVR for some bengals games.

What's there to laugh about? Henry is 6 foot 4 just like Moss, but Moss is 10 pounds heavier. They both have freakish speed. In 2006 when Henry had his head on straight and actually played to his potential, he had 36 catches for 600+ yards and 9 scores. That's a touchdown catch every 4 receptions. That's ridiculous.
