This year I wrote the player rankings and evaluations for the USA Today 2012 NFL Draft magazine. It's on newsstands now and available online here. Leading up to the draft, I'll be reprinting some of my quick reports here.

Aaron Henry, Wisconsin
Height: 6'0, Weight: 210 pounds

Strengths: Is a nice athlete for the position and move around fluidly and without a wasted motion. Has good range and is good at covering man up. Fluid hips. Converted from cornerback in 2010. Is disciplined when dropping back and doesn't open his hips too soon. Vocal team leader. Will be best on that has a run stuffing safety so he can play center field.

Weaknesses: Not especially physical and looks more like a bigger cornerback. Will have to become more physical to be more than a backup safety or nickel player. Needs to be more patient as routes develop. Struggles to get off blocks when playing near the line of scrimmage. Torn ACL in 2008 bowl game practice and missed the next season.
