So, Derrick Henry makes one of his teammates look super small.
The Tennessee Titans’ Jim Wyatt tweeted an interesting picture Tuesday that showcased how big the former Alabama running back looks among some of the player’s peers.
Check out Henry standing next to rookie running back Khalfani Muhammad, a former California player taken 241st overall in the 2017 NFL Draft. No contest.

Looking at the tale of the tape, that sight shouldn’t be much of a surprise. Muhammad is 5-foot-9, 175 pounds, and Henry is 6-2, 247. That’s a significant difference.
It’s a good thing Muhammad chose to play running back. Pity to him if he ever had to try to tackle Henry. Yikes, that wouldn’t be pretty.
Henry will try to take a step forward with the Titans this year. After being taken 45th overall in the 2016 NFL Draft, he finished last season with 490 yards rushing and five touchdowns on 11o carries. There’s room for him to grow, and it will be interesting to see if he can produce in a more significant way next fall.
Henry definitely isn’t lacking in the size department, though.
