Titans rookie linebacker Aaron Wallace looked across the line of scrimmage and saw an almost a mirror image of himself standing on the other side.

Except Derrick Henry is a running back.

And luckily for Wallace, now his teammate.

"It's a big back coming at you," said Wallace, a big man himself at 6-foot-2 and 242 pounds. "Yeah he's a good player and excited that he's on our team and we get to go against him in practice."

Friday marked the first day of rookie minicamp for the Titans' 10 draft picks, 12 undrafted free agents and a batch of 20 players getting a chance at catching a coach's eye. Yet there was Henry attracting plenty of attention despite being Tennessee's fourth pick with the 45th overall selection.

Not only did Henry win the Heisman Trophy and help Alabama win another national championship last season, it's the sheer size he brings at running back standing 6-foot-3. Henry did note he's currently about 243 pounds, a bit lighter than the 247 the Titans currently are listing him.
