Featured Prospects

Selected by: Philadelphia Eagles
Round: 4
Pick (Overall): 23 (120)

Pick Analysis: The kicking game remains a vital part of the Eagles' blue print of success, and the addition of Henery gives them an opportunity to upgrade the position. David Akers' inconsistencies will provide Henery with a legitimate chance to make their team, but he must win the job outright.

Overview

Henery could be a solid kicker in the NFL. Possesses a big, strong leg with the range to hit very long field goal attempts but accuracy does drop some from over 50 yards. Outstanding accuracy and consistency on shorter kicks. Has experience punting, flashes the ability to directionally kick, but doesn't get enough consistent hang-time or distance. Solid athlete who can handle poor snaps and angle a returner toward the sideline. Henery has the experience, versatility, and mentality (pressure kicks, success in bad weather) to warrant a seventh round selection or priority free agent grade.


Strengths

Henery has good height and is a good enough athlete. Possesses a big leg and can hit 50-plus yard field goals. Experienced and successful kicking in cold weather. Excellent accuracy on short field goal attempts. Has also handled punting duties and shows some ability to punt directionally.

Weaknesses

Lacks bulk. Kicking accuracy drops with longer attempts. Punting distance and elevation are only average. Will take an extra step on occasion while punting. Probably only an emergency punting option for an NFL team.

Grade

4.5
