Here's my simple argument against D. Henry

If big RB's are so great- why haven't there been more? 

Are you willing to bet that Henry is the exception instead of the rule? 

I'm not- not in the first round.

Here's a simple fact.  If you spend a first round pick on anybody not named Adrian Peterson, Todd Gurley, Leonard Fournette, or Samaje Perine at the RB position.  You probably need to rethink your skills as a GM.

This quote will be my new signature if DH is the pick.

Don't worry, when he starts sucking ass.  You'll be sure to take that poo out of your sig in a heartbeat.  

Name an RB that turned out to be worth a first round pick that was 6'3+ and 230+.  Don't worry, I'll wait.

so yes I agree but he IS the exception, thank you for proving my point - we see hundreds of RBs in the league every year (including backups and practice squad) and PLENTY of talented large men------so why aren't there more huge RB's 

I'm not saying Henry won't succeed but that certainly IS NOT the rule- he would be an exception

Do you realize that telling us you know better than Gettleman is absolutely hilarious?

Hard to be upset about any of these picks. Hunter Henry would be my favorite because I think he has the rarest talent in the whole draft; a TE with his skill set only comes along once in a while. I haven't looked at Butler much because I assume he will go before 30, but he'd be a no brainer at 30 (thanks for the film). Ogbah will most likely be the best DE available at 30 and is definitely worth a 1st round pick. Derrick Henry scares me a bit because he has potential to be a miss. He has a high center of gravity and has been used a lot at Bama. I worry about his legs taking too much punishment, but if G-man likes him at 30 who the hell am I to argue?

So, that's my preference order if all 4 are on the board at 30: H. Henry, Butler, Ogbah, D. Henry.

When it comes to RB's is picking one in the first round that isn't a guarantee a horrible thing to do?  

Isn't this common sense in today's NFL?  I mean, I don't know more than Gettlemen when it comes to football.  But common sense should be common, right?
