Derrick Henry, the standout rushing back of the Tennessee Titans, will be the top running back in the upcoming video game Madden 23. When it comes to acclaimed video games, this should have been a no-brainer for Titans star Jason Statham.
New game ratings are being released one by one, and the running backs were ranked on Wednesday. Derrick Henry had the highest overall grade of 97.
Just ahead of the Cleveland Browns‘ Nick Chubb and the Carolina Panthers’ Christian McCaffrey, Henry is rated 97. Jonathan Taylor, a running back with the Indianapolis Colts, ranked third with a score of 95.
Taylor was able to dominate the league in rushing last season, but the running back Henry had to dethrone was McCaffrey, who had been the top back in the prior two Madden games.
The top 10 running backs for the upcoming game include Dalvin Cook (94 points), Joe Mixon (93 points), Alvin Kamara (90 points), Aaron Jones (89 points), and Austin Ekeler (88 points), and Ezekiel Elliott (88 points).
There has been a lot of focus on Jonathan Taylor entering the season, which is understandable given his outstanding campaign last year, but prior to his mid-season injury, Henry was on pace for another 2,000-yard season.
In light of his troubles in the playoff game, there are still some doubts regarding Henry’s ability to return to a full workload following his injury. His workload could be limited this year because Tennessee’s running back situation is deeper than it has in a long time, but it appears that Madden’s rating gurus are confident that Henry will return to dominant form this season.
There is little doubt that Henry’s position on this list is positive, regardless of whether or not you were pleased with how the rest of the Tennessee Titans players fared. If he can live up to that grade, he should return to being a probable Hall of Famer.
Henry was a three-sport star in football, basketball, track, and field at Yulee High School. For the Yulee Hornets football team, he was a running back. As a rookie in 2009, he rushed for 2,465 yards and 26 touchdowns. For his 2,788 yards rushing and 38 touchdowns, he was selected to the 2010 First Team All-Cost at running back.
He averaged 8.9 yards per carrying. First-team All-Coast recognition from the Florida Times-Union came after he carried for 2,610 yards and scored 34 TDs as a junior in 2011. For his senior season, he rushed for 4,261 yards and 55 touchdowns, setting the state high school record and averaging 9.2 yards per run and 327.8 yards per game. He kept the record until 2021.
At the conclusion of his high school career, he had 12,124 career rushing yards, breaking Ken Hall’s previous record of 12,121. He also scored 153 rushing touchdowns in his career. In terms of total touchdowns, he’s fifth all-time. At Yulee, he ran for more than 250 yards a game and never ran for less than 100 yards in a game during his four years on the team. He ran for 53 yards, scored a touchdown, and added a two-point conversion while representing the East in the 2013 U.S. Army All-American Bowl.
During his time at Yulee, Henry was a sprinter in track and field. After finishing sixth at the 2011 FHSAA 2A District 3 Championships, his personal best performance of 11.11 seconds in the 100-meter dash was a personal best. On the 4×100-meter and 4-400-meter relay teams, he was also a part.
