With the No. 70 pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, the Rams to select Darrell Henderson, running back out of Memphis. Supremely fast back who can hit home runs from anywhere on the field. Occasionally can make defenders miss in space but his cutting skills are more subtle than violent. Speed allows him to bounce off weak tackle attempts.
