Titans Take Arizona RB Chris Henry With 2nd Draft Pick

April 28, 2007

Nashville (AP) --The Tennessee Titans have added a running back, and his name isn't Michael Turner of San Diego.

The Titans used their second round draft pick on Chris Henry of Arizona. He had been rated as the 11th running back available and played little during his first three seasons in college before coming out early.

He was benched and suspended for a game in 2006 before starting his final four games. He averaged 3.3 yards per carry with six total starts. But the former track star ran a 4.4 second 40-yard dash and got himself noticed with a good workout at the NFL combine.

The Titans had been talking to San Diego about trading for Turner. That deal seems unlikely with this selection.
