Henry selected in sixth round by New York Jets

April 27, 2008


Former Kansas University wide receiver Marcus Henry became the fourth Jayhawk selected in the NFL Draft, when he was picked up in the sixth round by the New York Jets on Sunday.

Henry was the fifth pick of the sixth round and went 171st overall. His stock skyrocketed after breaking out in 2007, when he caught 54 balls for 1,014 yards and 10 touchdowns for the 12-1 Jayhawks.

Henry is 6-foot-4 with a long wingspan and good speed, making him a promising NFL prospect.

Kansas now has four draft picks in the first six rounds - none of which were rated higher than two stars by coming out of high school.
