Most likely, Drake would have beaten out Henry during the summer for the number two running back position on the depth chart. While Henry deserves the hype he receives, Drake is no slouch. Drake was a four-star recruit out of high school and is a burner in the backfield. He boasts a reported 4.43 40-yard dash time. In addition to his speed, Drake showed the toughness of an interior runner by scoring all of his touchdowns in the red zone last season.
