Ravens choose Michigan DT Willie Henry with 132nd overall pick

The Ravens used their four pick of the fourth round – No. 132 – to select Michigan defensive tackle Willie Henry.

The 6-foot-3, 311-pound Henry was honorable mention all-Big Ten as a senior last season, with his best game coming in the painful last-second loss to Michigan State with five tackles, including two sacks and a career-high three tackles.

Henry is the latest player to be drafted who came out of Glenville High School in Cleveland, where he played for Ted Ginn Sr.

"You know Glenville is a great foundation to come from that high school. Coach Ginn and his staff do a great job coaching young guys from the inner city of Cleveland up and sending these guys to college," Henry said. "It's changing people's lives. You can't do nothing but thank the man."

Henry also played at Michigan under Ravens coach John Harbaugh's brother, Jim, and former Ravens defensive coordinator Greg Mattison.

Asked what it will be like to play for John Harbaugh after playing under Jim Harbaugh in Ann Arbor as a senior, Henry said, "It's going to be great. Two great coaches who know what they're talking about and have great schemes…I can't wait to go play for another coach Harbaugh. Right now, I'm just ecstatic."
