Arkansas Tight End Henry Declares For NFL Draft

KURT VOIGT, AP Sports Writer

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) — All-American tight end Hunter Henry says he is leaving Arkansas following his junior season and declaring for the NFL draft.

Henry had 51 catches for 739 yards this season for the Razorbacks (8-5), who ended their season with a 45-23 win over Kansas State in the Liberty Bowl. The 6-foot-5, 253-pound junior ends his career with 116 catches for 1,661 yards and nine touchdowns.

Coach Bret Bielema said last month Henry had received a "very high" draft evaluation grade from the NFL.

Henry was a first-team selection to The Associated Press All-American team as well as a first-team All-Southeastern Conference selection.
