Forget being drafted in the NFL. You know you’ve made it big when you’re “Jeopardy!” famous.

The honor was well-deserved. Henry had 51 receptions for a career-high 739 yards and 3 touchdowns that year. The San Diego Chargers took him in the second round, 35th overall, in the most recent NFL draft.
Henry has continued to be a pass-catching threat as a professional. The rookie has 20 catches for 326 yards and 3 touchdowns this year.
