Running Backs (4): Derrick Henry, Darrynton Evans, Jeremy McNichols, Khari Blasingame
This projection is similar to my last one, except last time I had Dalyn Dawkins instead of Jeremy McNichols, who wasn’t on the team at the time. Dawkins was waived, along with Cameron Scarlett.
It seems like the final RB spot will be between Jeremy McNichols and Senorise Perry. Perry is more of a special teams ace, and the Titans already carry several of those. This time, McNichols makes the team.
We all know the role that Derrick Henry will play in this offense, but this gives the Titans “double-dips” at the two running back prototypes.
Henry and Khari Blasingame can be the big bruiser backs that get touches on short down and distances. Obviously Henry can do more as a runner and Blasingame will be relied on more as a fullback/H-back, but thing power football.
Then, Darryton Evans is supposed to be the do-it-all player who can run, catch, block, and even give you some help on special teams. Well, luckily the other running back on this list can fill the exact same role.
Depth is going to be key this year, and no team relies more on their running backs than the Titans.
