Sunday January 17th, 2016

Alabama running back Derrick Henry hopes that when he hears his named called during the 2016 NFL Draft in April, it will be as a member of the Dallas Cowboys, reports Michael Casagrande of 

When asked about the NFL team he’d like to play for, Henry said that he feels that Dallas simply "has a great organization." 

Henry also talked about his second-round grade given by the NFL’s draft advisory board, saying that he will not be satisfied unless he is taken in the first round. 

“I feel like, just because I got my grade, it doesn't mean I'm not going to be first round,” Henry said. “I feel like what I do and how I test at the combine and work out. I feel like I will be first round. There's no doubt in my mind that I won't be.”

Henry won the Heisman for his 2015 regular season performance, carrying the ball 395 times for 2,219 yards and 28 touchdowns including postseason play.

Alabama beat Clemson 45–40 to win the National Championship.
