Phil Savage expects Derrick Henry to run sub-4.5 40

Former Alabama running back and 2015 Heisman Trophy winner Derrick Henry is looking to be a top running back in the 2016 NFL Draft, despite many believing he could end up being a bust. If he has a good showing at the NFL Scouting Combine this weekend, that could all change.

He led the country in rushing during the 2015 season and hopes to turn that into success in the NFL. Phil Savage believes that Henry could have an impressive 40-yard dash time this weekend.

I'm expecting the humble giant to run sub-4.50 at #NFLCombine. Never saw him angled off or caught from behind.

This could really help his draft stock a ton. Some NFL teams put a lot of stock into the 40-yard dash times and it could make a huge difference in what happens in April.

What do you think, fans? Could a good 40 time help Henry in the NFL or will some teams still see him as another Trent Richardson type player?
