Derrick Henry in the second round? Come on Walt. There will be teams lining up to insert him as their bell cow back. Mainly, the Tennessee Titans. Marcus and Derrick Henry would be a matchup nightmare ala Wilson Lynch a couple years ago. Henry would reduce the need for Marcus to carry the team considering he can tote the ball 30 times a game for 100 and a TD. That alone would allow for a better play action game and possibly some more read option opportunities with a RB defenses have to worry about. If Henry makes it to the Lions in Rd2 I will never post on your website again.
Good length allows him to be an effective rebounder and shot-blocker
Nice touch around the basket
Has shown the ability to knock down mid-range jumpers
Strong finisher at the rim
Runs the floor well especially when getting back on defense
Offensive game is still a work in progress
Struggles at the free-throw line
Needs to become stronger if he is going to bang down low in the NBA
Tends to get into foul trouble due to being an over-agressive shot-blocker
Needs to be more aggressive on the offensive end
Summary: Davis' sophomore season came to an end prematurely due to an injury to his shooting wrist. Davis is a top-10 prospect depsite the fact that he did not blow up this season like most people were expecting. The injury throws a wrench into his decision to turn pro or return for his junior season. I am 50/50 on which decision he will make but it may be hard for him to pass up being a top-10 pick.
Player Comparison: Al Horford. Horford and Davis seem to be headed down similar paths. Much like Davis, Horford was a role player as a freshman known for his rebounding and shot-blocking abilities. When Horford stepped into the starting lineup, his game progressed to the point where he was one of the more effective big men in the country. Davis is expected to make that leap in his sophomore season just as Horford did.
