He is probably the only pro football player that makes huge athletes look normal.
Derrick Henry is simply different.
No one had ever seen a running back his size (6-3/247) possesses so much speed, explosiveness, burst, quickness, and acceleration. Henry is a massive man, but he has the vision and moves to be the best player at his position in the National Football League. As a three-time 1,500-yard rusher for the Tennessee Titans, Henry is the heart of the franchise.
He is in offseason training, preparing for his eighth season in the league. Henry shared a photo of himself with Von Miller of the Buffalo Bills on social media. Miller, a superstar pass rusher, stands at 6’3″ and weighs 250. The two-time Super Bowl Champion and eight-time Pro Bowl selection looked small compared to Henry. The 2015 Heisman winner looked ripped up in the photo.
