Physicality, Great pass-catcher, Quick acceleration, Home run potential


Size, Pass protection, Upright running style, Doesn’t let things develop


Darrell Henderson had a lot of success in college, totaling nearly 2,000 yards on the ground 2018 and compiling 25 total touchdowns. The question is whether he can equate that success to the NFL where defenses will be more stacked in the box and more physical than what he faced in an average conference. Henderson has big play potential with his great speed and acceleration. He has the ability to spin away from contact and make plays out of the backfield. He may not be a third down back because of his pass protection, though, and some question his upright running style.
