Derrick Henry's 40-yard dash time opens eyes at NFL combine

2016 NFL Combine Boasts Contenders to Break 40-Yard Dash Record

Football is a violent game, but hey, that's part of the fun, right?

And, typically, when a team is bigger, faster and stronger, it's going to have a pretty sizable advantage over the competition.

However, usually, you have your fast players and then you have your big, strong guys. Derrick Henry is trying to break the ideal.

After measuring in at 6-foot-3 and 247 lbs, Henry threw up 22 reps on the bench press. Okay, there's the strong part. But just how fast is the former Alabama Crimson Tide running back? Well, why don't we check the stopwatches in Indianapolis that clocked him at a 4.45 unofficial time on the 40-yard dash.

His official time was 4.54 seconds, but that's incredibly quick for a 247-pound running back.

When you consider the fact Henry posted a 37-inch vertical jump and a 10'10" broad jump, you can imagine how much the scouts and coaches were drooling.

One lucky NFL team is going to have a freakish athlete in its backfield next season, and he might just challenge Ezekiel Elliot for the honor of being the first running back drafted.
