Who is Darrell Henderson

Darrell Henderson spent three seasons in college, where he tallied 4,303 scrimmage yards and 44 touchdowns in 38 games. Injuries have bugged Henderson since Memphis days as he missed the 2017 Liberty Bowl. However, after a breakout 2018 at Memphis as a starter that earned him top 10 Heisman Trophy votes and the Jim Brown Award for the top running back in NCAA play, Henderson declared for the 2019 NFL draft. He was drafted in the third round by the Rams after which he has spent time as a starter but also as the backup piece to committees led by Todd Gurley, Cam Akers, and Sony Michel.

Despite multiple injuries during his tenure with the Rams as well, Henderson's athletic profile coupled with his college statistics will continue to be eye-catching as his 40 time and speed score ranked in the 80th and 73rd percentile, respectively, and his 33.9% college dominator and 8.9 yards per carry on college ranked in the 79th and 99th percentiles, respectively. His ability to be versatile has led to some bellcow usage as well as some pass-catching involvement in his highlight games so far in the NFL as he has posted multiple 20-carry games and a game with over 30 routes run.
