Darrell Henderson, RB, Memphis
Darrell Henderson was an absolute nightmare for opposing defenses last season, although the level of competition he was facing was not exactly impressive.
Since starting as a true sophomore in 2017 Henderson has combined for 344 carries, 3,063 yards, and 31 rushing touchdowns. He has added an additional 43 catches for 521 receiving yards and five scores through the air.
Henderson’s numbers would insinuate he is a work horse back who can do it all and never come off the field, but NFL teams do not necessarily seen that as the case. Henderson is considered undersized for the position coming in at 5’9 and 200 pounds.
Teams are concerned with Henderson ability to handle a heavy workload at the next level but with his proven production and his speed, running a sub 4.5 40 yard dash at the combine, Henderson provides home run potential as a day-two pick. Henderson very well could end up being the steal of the draft and can hopefully cement himself into an NFL backfield.
After using a day-two asset on Jones just one year ago, Henderson may be worth a third round pick this year as well for the Buccaneers to consider. He may even still be available when the fourth round hits, providing an even larger bang-for-buck deal.
