2011 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:

Henry Hynoski, FB, Pittsburgh

Fullbacks are hard to come by these days, but very few are at good at what they do as Pittsburgh junior Henry Hynoski. At 6-2 and 260 pounds, Hynoski is a throwback type of player who lays out bruising blocks and has paved the way for the dynamic rushing duo of Dion Lewis and Ray Graham for the last two years. Because of what he does, Hynoski will never get too much attention, but the road to a Big East title will have to go through Pittsburgh for now and the longer the Panthers can stay in the race, the more attention everybody on the team will receive.

Hynoski is certainly a throwback player, but he is unique because he is a surprisingly good athlete for a 260 pound fullback who loves to knock over linebackers. During the 2009 campaign, Hynoski carried the ball 24 times for 107 yards and a score. He also caught 15 passes for 109 yards. He has been more involved in the passing game during the 2010 campaign and has already reached the end zone on one of his 17 catches. Two or three times per game quarterback Tino Sunseri will check down to Hynoski and he almost always makes the catch and does a good job of running over some people to pick up a few extra yards.

Hynoski is only a redshirt junior this season, so he will likely return to Pitt for his senior season. However, he will be the best fullback whether it be in the 2011 draft or the 2012 draft. Unfortunately for Hynoski, top fullbacks are not often drafted very high.
