8. Hunter Henry

  • Highest ranking: Seventh
  • Lowest ranking: Not ranked

Hunter Henry was ranked in all but one of our top 10 lists as Steven Haglund did not include the fifth-year tight end.

When Henry is on his game he is one of the best pass-catching tight ends in the entire league. We have seen what he can do in spurts in the passing game and when he is on he is really on and he becomes an elite target.

However, the problem with Henry throughout his career is his tendency to sometimes just… disappear. He is one of those players that you can completely forget is even on the field until he finally makes a play in the third quarter. We have seen fantastic spurts but he has not sustained those spurts throughout an entire season.

Health is also a major factor as Henry is looking to shake the injury-prone tag. That is why the Chargers franchise tagged him this season. If he can stay healthy and puts together a fantastic season then he could be a long-term tight end for the team.

If Henry gets hurt or just proves to not be as big of a factor in the offense as expected then the Chargers might allocate that money for someone else and look at the draft for their next tight end.

Henry is a player to watch on this list as he is going to be on the move in either direction. I am certain that he could have a spectacular season and thrust himself into the top five or fall out of the top 10 altogether.
