Number 18: Derrick Henry
RB – #22 – 6’3 247lbs – Exp. 2 – Alabama – 2016 Draft 2nd Round Pick
Did you know that Derrick Henry and Von Miller are the same size? Yup, same height and weight. Except one is destroying 300 pound o-lineman and the other is a running back that nobody can tackle. The former Heisman Trophy winner is a human battering ram and the best complementary/backup runner in the league. I truly believe that if Derrick Henry toted the rock as much as DeMarco Murray did last year, his numbers would have been very similar to Murray’s this past season.
His fabulous play in the red zone last season won the Titans a game against the Kansas City Chiefs last year. Henry has the potential to be the future of the two-tone blue run game. If you’re a safety in the open field with this stud coming at you, you might not recall what comes next. His size, speed, finesse and football smarts combine to create one of the league’s scariest running backs.
