2011 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:

Ricky Henry, OG, Nebraska

It took Ricky Henry some time to finally get on the field for Nebraska, but the big offensive guard made a bigger impact once he finally got to Lincoln. Henry signed with the Cornhuskers out of high school, but ended up spending a couple of years at North Dakota State College of Science. Henry moved permanently to the offensive side of the line while at the junior college ranks after making a bigger splash on the defensive end during his prep career.

Henry made it to Lincoln in 2008, but redshirted that season. He finally suited up on game days for Nebraska in 2009 and immediately stepped into the starting right guard spot that he become accustomed to while in junior college. The result was a surprisingly solid offense that did a superb job of protecting new quarterback Zac Lee and paved the way for running back Roy Helu to eclipse the 1,000 yard mark. As a result of his play, Henry earned Honorable Mention All-Big 12 accolades. As a senior in 2010, Henry worked his way up to First-Team honors.

The Nebraska offense -- led by quarterback Taylor Martinez and running back Roy Helu -- have garnered a lot of national attention this year and Henry and the rest of the offensive line deserve a ton of credit. Henry's strong showing has boosted his draft stock considerably and just a couple months ago he was totally off the radar. Now he is a solid late round selection and could work his way up the draft boards between now and April.
