Derrick Henry has become one of the most dominant players the NFL has seen since he was drafted by the Tennessee Titans in 2016. But he’s been crushing his opposition long before he was taken in the second round out of Alabama.
One look at Derrick Henry’s stats throughout his career, and you know he’s one of the best running backs to ever do it. Whether it was his 4,261 yards and 55 touchdowns as a senior in high school (which set a state record in Florida), or his 2,219 rushing yards and 28 rushing touchdowns as a junior at Alabama (which earned him Heisman Trophy honors), the numbers are simply amazing.
In fact, Derrick Henry’s injury in 2021 was the only thing preventing him from becoming just the fourth running back in NFL history to win three consecutive rushing titles—and the first since Emmitt Smith did it back in 1993.
Thankfully, the six-foot-three, 240-plus pound monster is back to making headlines. From Derrick Henry’s return, to future Derrick Henry contract negotiations, you can keep up to date on everything about the Titans’ star running back right here.
