Although he's the reigning Heisman Trophy winner and a National Champion, Alabama running back Derrick Henry faces some criticism when it comes to his skill set.

Alabama RB Derrick Henry:

6'3/247 lbs. 33" arms. 8 3/4" hands.

Questions primarily persist in regards to both Henry's weight and deep-field speed. It's curious -- considering Henry very rarely was caught from behind on any long run down the field. He also thrived in arguably the top conference in all of college football.

Regardless, these were topics Henry addressed Wednesday during the combine interview process. The Florida native weighed in at 247 pounds. As such, he's the heaviest running back in attendance at the combine. While Henry was surprised, he attributes this mostly to the water-weight he's recently put on.

"I was kind of shocked I was 247 this morning, but it'll go down by tonight," Henry said (via 247Sports). "I don't really stay at that weight. "

Ohio State running back Ezekiel Elliott appears to be the only rusher right now projected as a first-round pick. Henry could vault himself into first-round contention with a strong time in the 40-yard dash. While he knows the time he'd like to get to, Henry isn't divulging that publicly.

"I'm not doing any predictions. There's a number I know I wanna hit, but I'm not really gonna say it," said Henry. I'm just gonna go out there and do my best."
