2012 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:

Aaron Henry, FS, Wisconsin

Safeties who can cover in man coverage out of college are more rare than one would think. University of Wisconsin safety prospect Aaron Henry can do just that as he formerly played cornerback for the Badgers. His limited experience at safety will prove to give general managers and scouts the idea that he still has more development to come at the position.

Henry exhibits good patience with his footwork and lower half. Many cornerbacks are too quick to open up their hips, but Henry is very disciplined. In exchange for that discipline though is that he does not get a jump on the ball with regularity. He will need to be in the video room often, studying his opponents' tendencies rather than relying on athleticism.

As a tackler, he isn't afraid to mix it up but lacks that aggressive streak coaches like to see out of the safety position. Henry will flow to the ball, but he won't explode and needs to learn to keep his feet moving and active.

When he fully understands the position, he has the potential to be a solid reserve but simply lacks that attractive, elite natural ability that many other safeties possess.
