The Chargers drafted the winner of the 2015 John Mackey Award as the nation's top collegiate tight end when they landed former University of Arkansas All-America Hunter Henry in the second round of the 2016 NFL Draft.

Besides winning the Mackey Award as a true junior in 2015, Henry was a consensus first-team All-America, including honors from the Associated Press, USA Today, and The Sporting News. He also was a consensus first-team All-SEC choice after catching 51 passes for 739 yards and three scores in 2015. His yardage total was tops in the nation among all tight ends and even more impressively, Henry did not drop a single pass thrown in his direction during the entire 2015 season. Henry is also a capable blocker. In 2015, he did not allow a sack or quarterback hurry and he played a key role in the Razorbacks running game which rushed for more than 200 yards in an SEC-best six conference games.

A native of Little Rock, Arkansas, Henry finished his Razorbacks career with 116 catches for 1,661 yards and nine touchdowns. In three seasons, he started 30 games and played in 38.

Henry's father, Mark, also played at Arkansas (1988-91) and he was a team captain as a senior.

TRANSACTION HISTORY: Second-round pick by Chargers (35th overall), April 29, 2016...signed four-year contract, June 3.
