Cedric Henry

CB | (5-9, 185, 4.5) | Michigan State
By Pro Football Weekly

Notes: Played in every game as a true freshman in 1998, started once and had 52 tackles and 13 passes broken up. Missed the start of the '99 season after injuring his back in a preseason scrimmage, but he returned to play in the last nine games. Coming off the bench, he had 18-4. Started every game at left corner in '00. Led the Big Ten in passes broken up with 24, intercepted five passes and was in on 45 stops. Was academically ineligible in '01. As Michigan State's best cover player, he was really missed in '01. Played in 10-of-12 games in '02, when he had 30-2-1.

Positives: A good athlete with quick-twitch movements, smooth hips and nimble feet, Henry can play man-on-man coverage and has good ability to mirror the receiver. Though undersized, he will hit and tackle. Competes and is well built. Will hit and is active in run support.

Negatives: Lacks height and does not jump that well. He also will lose his concentration and focus at times. He gives up big plays when he loses focus and gets sloppy with his technique or tries to peek into the backfield. Will get high in his pedal at times. His work habits have been questioned.

Summary: Must learn to focus and play smart and could be a late-round pick.
