Hunter Henry, Arkansas
Hunter Henry is easily the premier tight end in this class, and he would look great in the green and gold. Henry would give Aaron Rodgers a big-time target in the passing game — 6-foot-5, 250 pounds to be precise. He is a strong route runner with reliable hands, not registering a single drop last year.
As a pass-catcher, Henry could be everything the Packers need in a tight end. He has the ability to get open vertically down the field and importantly makes catches in traffic. He has great athleticism. As a receiver, Henry ticks all of the boxes.
Yet that’s not the only way he could help the Packers. Richard Rodgers’ run blocking in 2015 left a lot to be desired, but Henry could help out in that department. The fact he can block and help the passing game would help fill the void left by Jermichael Finley.
Here’s the tough part: Henry will likely cost a first round pick by the Packers barring a trade. There’s a chance he drops into the top of the second round, which could bring a trade down into play. If the Packers can move down, grab Henry and acquire an extra pick, I’m all for it.
