3. DUNBAR COMPARISON
Both McVay and general manager Les Snead compared their third-round draft choice to former Cowboys and Rams running back Lance Dunbar.
Dunbar’s professional career was cut short during his time in Los Angeles because of a history of knee injuries, but the former undrafted running back had a similar change-of-pace running style as Henderson, according to McVay.
Dunbar put up some serious numbers at a mid-major, much like Henderson at Memphis. The University of North Texas inducted Dunbar into their Athletics Hall of Fame after he finished his career with 5,375 all-purpose yards, and a school-high 49 total touchdowns as the first running back in program history with three-straight 1,000-yard rushing seasons.
