The Tennessee Titans could have the most dangerous running game in the NFL right now after using one of many second-round picks, in this case the 45th overall, to select former Alabama star and reigning Heisman Trophy winner Derrick Henry.
Combined with Demarco Murray, who was acquired from the Philadelphia Eagles earlier this year, Henry and his 6-foot-3, 252 pound frame should provide excellent north-south power in the Titans’ rushing attack.
Originally from Florida, Henry was an absolute stud for Alabama last season. He led the nation with 2,219 rush yards and 28 rushing touchdowns and enters the NFL with 3,591 yards and 42 touchdowns to his name. Henry is going to need to learn how to run east-west more often now that he is in the NFL, but he has a strong offensive line in front of him and a former leading rusher in Murray to help show him the ropes.
Simply put, great pick by the Titans.
