Darrell Henderson vs UCLA 2017

"call him something like a 5'8 Dalvin Cook"


Henderson is poised to be the #1 homerun threat out of the backfield in the 19' class of RBs. If he confirms his speed on film pre draft he'll be a highly coveted guy.

There could be some debate about his usage as a pro back going forward that would affect his stock. He's physical for his size but he wasn't much of a workhorse at Memphis.

His 2017 game vs, arguably his best college opponent, UCLA, showcases pretty much everything he'll bring into the league.

Watching Henderson I feel like I'm almost seeing a mini Rashaad Penny. Blazing speed and burst and production but with just adequate wiggle.

He runs over guys when he gathers momentum but he's generally an upright runner thru the hole (note that final snap here vs UCLA) and is afforded a lot of gaping holes in Memphis' system. Right now, for a generous pro comp, I'd call him something like a 5'8 Dalvin Cook.
