Derrick Henry's footwork looks terrible at Titans minicamp

Derrick Henry was the man in college. 

As a junior at Alabama last season, the 6-3, 240-pound behemoth of a running back rushed for 2,219 yard and 28 touchdowns on his way to winning the Heisman Trophy as well as the Doak Walker, Walter Camp and Maxwell awards. 

But none of those accomplishments mean a thing anymore. 

The Titans selected Henry with the 45th overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft. Judging from footage of him going through drills during minicamp workouts, free agent signee DeMarco Murray won't have to worry about the rookie stealing carries from him to start the season.

Maybe he was tired. Maybe he was going half-speed just to get the drill down pat, or maybe, just maybe he's going to be terrible at the next level.

Henry has always been lauded for his size and toughness. However, it's plain to see he has to develop the kind of footwork that will allow him to make a move at the line of scrimmage and get to the second level of the defense where he's nearly unstoppable.
