This may be why. Check out "Henry & McGahee in same backfield?" at the link below.

Personally, this doesn't sour me at all on Henry. He's a hard runner who knows how to get across the stripe, while McGahee has yet to prove anything at the pro level.
Travis is also a great value, IMO. His stats the past two seasons put him just outside of the elite class of RBs; and because he's not a glamour or big name pick, he usually falls a round or two. I imagine the idea of McGahee cutting into Henry's carries may be the big concern.
To tie this into the thread context...if you had to choose between Barlow (unquestioned #1 with no supporting cast) or Henry (productive back who may lose carries), who would you select as a #2?
