2011 NFL Draft: Henry Hynoski In The Middle Of The Pack

Pitt fullback Henry Hynoski isn't generally mentioned up there with the names of other former Panthers such as wide receiver Jon Baldwin, running back Dion Lewis, or defensive ends Brandon Lindsey and Greg Romeus. But he does expect to be drafted and according to him, he could be taken as high as the middle rounds of the draft:

"From talking to my agent and to several teams, I'm thinking I'll be going in the middle rounds, from the fourth to the sixth round somewhere," Hynoski said Tuesday after a workout. "Only one fullback was taken last year, and he went in the fifth round. But crazy things can happen in the draft, so we'll just wait and see."

"The teams that liked me before still do, from what they've told me," Hynoski said. "I've met with several head coaches and had a lot of good discussions, and my agent still thinks that when it's over, I could go as high as the fourth round, but probably in the fifth or sixth. Draft day is a crazy day, and I'm just hoping for the best."

As I wrote over at Cardiac Hill, the fact that he could be taken despite rushing for only 33 yards last season may seem laughable. But it's more about the lack of quality fullbacks in the draft and Hynoski could benefit from that.
