This is a smart approach, given that many of the more talented running backs tend to come off the board later than usual in recent years. Dallas can potentially land a great player with one of their day three picks. Darrell Henderson could be one of those great players. In three seasons at Memphis, Henderson made a name for himself as a dynamic threat with home run potential Youth Kavon Frazier Jersey , tallying nearly 3,500 career rushing yards and 758 career receiving yards for 44 total touchdowns. In 2018, Henderson split time with Tony Pollard, another running back in this draft class, and still racked up 1,909 rushing yards, averaging 8.9 yards per carry. In watching Henderson play, one of the first things to stick out is how he has great balance when running with the ball. Not that Memphis didn’t have a good offensive line, but they weren’t the sole reason for Henderson having such great numbers. A big part of it was that Henderson is just hard to tackle. Being 5’8” and 208 pounds helps with that, and Henderson’s balance does the rest. Check out these two plays where Henderson breaks multiple tackles for huge gains. Along with his balance, Henderson is exceptionally quick on his feet, able to stop and cut and change direction with ease. All of this combines to make him so hard for defenders to bring down. He doesn’t necessarily have breakaway speed, and his 4.49 40-yard dash reinforces that, but Henderson is so sturdy in his running that he doesn’t need to be lightning fast. Despite not being a burner, Henderson is fairly explosive. He does a good job of bursting through holes when they open up. Henderson does a good job of leading his defender to a point where he can use his quick cut ability to get by them and miss the tackle. This trait is especially dangerous in the open field, but Henderson is effective at doing so between the tackles too Kavon Frazier Jersey Stitched , although not as well. His best plays tend to come on outside zone run concepts, usually with a pulling blocker or two. Coincidentally, the Cowboys like to do a lot of that in their scheme. The threat that Henderson poses to defenses in the open field makes him an ideal weapon to use in the passing game as well. He saw a lot of screens and swings at Memphis, designed to quickly get the ball in his hands in the flat and let him go to work. It obviously worked out, as Henderson averaged 12 yards per reception in his three years in Memphis. As far as running routes, Henderson doesn’t seem to have the nuance there to go up field and track the ball. He also doesn’t have the most sure hands, sometimes dropping passes or struggling to control the ball. However, when he does make the catch he instantly becomes a threat to take it to the house, especially if he has some blockers out in front. When it comes to pass protection, Henderson is pretty weak in this category. He’s not egregiously bad but like most running backs entering the league, he isn’t all that capable of holding his own against incoming defenders. Relying on Henderson for blitz pickup is a good way to get your quarterback sacked, which limits Henderson’s ability to be a feature back in most offenses. That, combined with his average speed, are the reasons that Henderson could potentially be available in the third round, and if things fell perfectly, maybe the fourth but that would be extremely lucky. He would be an explosive back that could create a lot of matchup problems for a defense while giving Zeke some rest in games. While Dallas certainly doesn’t want to take Elliott off the field too much Youth La'el Collins Jersey , there could be some big gains to be had from trying to turn the duo of Elliott and Henderson into the Saints’ pairing of Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara. However they might try to attack it, getting Henderson would give new offensive coordinator Kellen Moore a really fun toy to play with while also helping to preserve their star running back. The rumors will not go away, but Sean Payton isn’t buying into them."WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections Dallas Cowboys NewsDallas Cowboys GeneralSean Payton is trying to quell the rumors that he’ll coach the CowboysNew,56commentsThe rumors will not go away, but Sean Payton isn’t buying into them.CDTShareTweetShareShareSean Payton is trying to quell the rumors that he’ll coach the CowboysChuck Cook-USA TODAY SportsDeath, taxes, and someday Sean Payton will coach the Dallas Cowboys. Have you caught your friends talking about Earl Thomas being traded to the Cowboys? That’s so 2018. The truly vogue thing these days, and really all days if we’re being honest, is that Sean Payton will one day coach America’s Team.This is a rumor that Cowboys fans have kicked around for a long time, but it came a little bit more believable recently when word emerged that Teddy Bridgewater contemplated not re-signing with the New Orleans Saints for the very same reason. If somebody who’s recently played for Payton believed that, who wouldn’t?Apparently that answer is Payton himself. Appearing on the radio on Thursday evening, he was asked about this very topic and took it upon himself to give as resounding of an answer as he could in order to try and put out the flames.If you’re somehow unaware, the fleur-de-lis is a hat tip to the Saints logo. Payton saying something like this is his version of “I love the Saints! I would never leave!” but we’re talking about a guy who once kept his contract extension in his briefcase for a period of time.Also, it’s not like tattoos are forever-binding things for NFL head coaches. Rex Ryan infamously had a tattoo of his wife wearing a Mark Sanchez jersey as an ode to his post as the head coach of the New York Jets (he later got the colors changed when he headed to the Buffalo Bills). That didn’t keep him there for eternity.Sean Payton can say whatever he likes, but until Jason Garrett has a contract extension or someone else is leading the Dallas Cowboys the rumors will continue to swirl. Do you really believe there isn’t a tattoo artist who couldn’t turn his current tattoo into a star?
