Chargers TE Henry comes from pro-style O - Tom Krasovic (UT$)
he reviews on Henry's blocking are mixed. Here are encouraging facts: 1) because of Arkansas' pro-style offense, he lined up as a true tight end, requiring him to block ends and linebackers, 2) the 6-foot-5, 251-pounder had some success displacing defenders.

"If someone can't keep up Philip, they're not going to last here long," Telesco said. "That's all part of the process between the scouting and with Coach Davidson, who met with him more than a couple times. ... I feel really good about it."

"He has experience in a pro style offense, and we know that Coach Bielema wants to run the ball," said Jim Miller.  "Antonio Gates is getting older, and they lost Ladarius Green to the Steelers in free agency, so this is a good pick that addresses a need."

"My dad was an offensive lineman and played offensive line at Arkansas," Henry said.  "I’ve always kind of grown up with that mentality and my dad and that toughness side of things.  (I like) just being tough, and being down in the trenches because that’s what he did day in and day out."

With Ladarius Green moving on, Henry steps in as a receiving tight end next to Antonio Gates. He has the speed to stretch the seam after posting the top receiving grade in the nation and not dropping a pass in 2015. He’s not a great run blocker, but Henry adds a nice mismatch option for the San Diego offense.
