What does he bring to the offense? Find out below.CDTThe 2019 NFL Draft has concluded and I’ve decided to take a look at every draft selection by the Los Angeles Rams in detail. I’m sharing my thoughts with you guys on what these prospects did well and what they bring to the Rams moving forward. We covered second-round pick S Taylor Rapp last time, and that can be found here.Going in order, next up is Memphis Tigers RB Darrell Henderson. Henderson was also a three-year starter in Memphis like Rapp, and he managed to rack up 431 rushing attempts, 3,545 rushing yards, 36 touchdowns, 63 receptions, 758 receiving yards Taylor Rapp Los Angeles Rams Jerseys , and eight receiving touchdowns in his college career.Let’s take a look at the write-up:Henderson doesn’t create much behind the line of scrimmage. Great fit in a zone blocking scheme. When running outside zone (the Rams ran more outside zone than any other NFL team last year), he shows solid vision, presses the line, and when appropriate, he makes one cut and goes. Good creator at the second level who also possesses breakaway speed. Productive runner from shotgun. Tough and has good balance when absorbing hits. Good hands though he wasn’t used a ton as a receiver. Upright running style. Can drop his shoulder and get physical. Enough speed and burst to reach the edge when appropriate. Solid patience which allows holes to develop. Finishes runs with power delivering big blows to defenders.Have a look at this play where Henderson is running outside zone. It may look familiar because the Rams’ entire foundation on offense was centered around this running play:(Google AMP and Apple News readers can click here to view the clip)Your browser does not support HTML5 video.After getting to watch Henderson, I’m highly approving of the draft pick. He fits the Rams’ running game absolutely perfectly, and that’s exactly why he was the choice of running back in the 2019 draft class. He often ran outside zone in college, so the jump to the NFL (within the Rams’ offense) should only require a small transition. Henderson’s ability will prove to be a major key in allowing RB Todd Gurley to rest long stretches because of his troubled knee. For that reason, that is exactly why I believe Henderson was the perfect addition. He isn’t a change-of-pace back or a “compliment” Los Angeles Rams Jerseys 2019 , he does the exact same things as Gurley does. Henderson is a picture-perfect fit in the zone blocking scheme, and that’ll ensure the Rams will truly have no drop-off when it comes to rotating between RB1 and RB2. Lastly, the one thing Henderson does bring to the offense that they haven’t had yet (outside of tiny spurts last year with RB C.J. Anderson), is the ability to run effectively out of shotgun. Head Coach Sean McVay has claimed he wants to have more diversity in his offense, and having a true running threat even when deploying 11 personnel out of shotgun will do exactly that.Next up on the docket is Michigan Wolverines CB David Long. The 2019 Los Angeles Rams’ running game to this point has been...weird.A month ago after the Rams’ Week 5 loss to the Seattle Seahawks, I took a look at RB Todd Gurley’s declined usage compared to his previous seasons. Since then, if it’s possible, it’s gotten weirder? Gurley missed the Week 6 loss to the San Francisco 49ers with a thigh contusion and returned for the two routs thereafter.So let’s take a look at the ground game in 2019 and what might lie ahead:RB Todd GurleyThat was from that early October look.Here’s the updated numbers after seven games:Gurley’s first seven games in 2018: 144 carries, 686 rushing yards 2019 Taylor Rapp Los Angeles Rams , 11 rushing TDs, 35 targets, 25 receptions, 270 receiving yards, 3 receiving TDs.Gurley’s first seven games in 2019: 92 carries (↓36.11%), 355 rushing yards (↓48.25%), 6 rushing TDs (↓45.45%), 24 targets (↓31.43%), 15 receptions (↓40.00%) Taylor Rapp Los Angeles Rams Jerseys , 81 receiving yards (↓70.00%), 1 receiving TDs (↓66.66%)Welp.Not sure there’s much to say that hasn’t already been said. Gurley’s been used less, obviously. He’s doing less with less averaging more than a yard less per carry and more than four yards less per reception. What that means moving forward? No clue.We know it’s going to be a week-to-week process as it was in the first half. How that works it self out over the next eight games...TBD.RB Malcolm BrownBrown missed the last two games with an ankle injury but contributed substantially prior especially in Weeks 1 and 6. We’ll see if he’s finally good to go again when the initial injury report drops on Wednesday, but he could factor in immediately if so.The X-factor here might be what we’ve seen the last two weeks from...RB Darrell Henderson, Jr.Hendo finally got a chance to get some legitimate playing time the last three weeks with Gurley’s Week 6 absence and Brown being on the sideline the last two games. The numbers weren’t overwhelming, but his explosiveness might have been. Juxtaposed against Gurley, Hendo looked much more sprite and might have earned a larger share of the jobshare coming out of the bye. I say might, because I have little to no certainty about how the Rams are going to approach this overall let alone in Week 10 against the Pittsburgh Steelers.The offensive lineThis might be the elephant in the room. Whether it’s Gurley or Brown or Hendo, none have been the recipient of the kind of consistent room to operate that Gurley and former Rams RB C.J. Anderson enjoyed in 2018. Part of that has been declined performance from the veteran tackles in LT Andrew Whitworth and RT Rob Havenstein. Part of that has been poor play from the interior linemen. But part of that also has been the changing personnel that has included Joseph Noteboom at left guard Los Angeles Rams Jerseys Stitched , Brian Allen at center, Austin Blythe at right guard, Jamil Demby at both guard spots and (seemingly) now David Edwards at left guard. Should the Edwards-Allen-Blythe trio be locked in for the future, perhaps that could help get more consistency in their performances ahead.What’s heartening is that the talent around the offensive line should lower the bar for them. Between the running backs and the passing game targets, there’s a TON of talent that can make even mediocre blocking adequate. We’ll need QB Jared Goff to elevate the offense and play better under duress, but that’s kind of the challenge a fourth-year quarterback deserves to face.The numbers aren’t great. The performances overall haven’t been either. They’ve got a negative rushing DVOA per Football Outsiders. The Rams are averaging less than 100 yards per game which puts them in the bottom half of the league. They’re averaging less than four yards per carry which puts them in the bottom third.Yes, the Rams need to get better on the ground. The question is whether or not the Rams can get to the playoffs if it doesn’t. We’ll see if that question needs to be asked if the ground game doesn’t get going coming out of the bye.
