HOUSTON – Derrick Henry proved in 2020 there is still a market for big-bruising running backs in the NFL.
Behind Henry's running style – which garnered him the rushing title – the Tennessee Titans rode his playoff success all the way to the AFC Championship game. In turn, he may have also helped future draft prospects, who have similar build and run with the same style.
"He pretty much helped me out," former Kingwood High School and TCU-standout Sewo Olonilua said. "At the end of the day every team is looking for that big back to carry the load. I watch Derrick Henry; I feel like I relate to him."
Olonilua fits the mold at 6-foot-2 5/8 (tallest running back at the NFL Combine this weekend) and 246 pounds. His former high school rival, Patrick Taylor Jr. of Memphis does so as well.
