1. Henderson should move up at running back

Only time will tell when it comes to determining whether Gurley will see any setbacks at running back since the Rams have already made it clear they will be taking a different approach with their star running back in 2019.

But no matter what, Los Angeles deserves plenty of credit for putting the offense in better position at running back by using a third-round pick on Darrell Henderson during April’s draft.

On a depth chart that already consists of other running backs such as Malcolm Brown, John Kelly, and Justin Davis, Henderson clearly has plenty to prove over these next couple of weeks since he’s currently listed behind his teammates at the moment.

Throughout training camp, Henderson displayed plenty of potential with his different style of play, but finding similar success in preseason will be the biggest factor of all since this could determine what kind of action he sees come September.

Keep in mind that Los Angeles clearly saw something special in Henderson by using a third-round pick on the Memphis product since running back wasn’t even a top priority for the team in the draft.
