Haskins (6'1/220) sustained the injury in the CFP semi-final game against Georgia where he rushed just nine times for 39 yards due to the ailment. On the year the rugged interior ball carrier rushed 270 times for 1,327 yards, 4.9 YPC and twenty touchdowns for the Wolverines. He was one of the highest graded running backs on Pro Football Focus, earning an overall grade of 91.3, with a rushing grade of 89.3. Haskins forced a total of 56 missed tackles on the year and had 16 breakaway runs (runs of 15 or more yards) which account for 28.8% of his rushing yards on the season.

Michigan RB Hassan Haskins rushed for the most first downs of any running back from a power five conference in 2021.
Haskins (6'1/220) is a really interesting prospect and has some great qualities. Certainly, his size is something teams are looking for, but also has the incredible speed to get to the secondary and has the toughness to take hits. He's also an all-purpose back with great hands to catch the ball in the backfield and is good in pass protection. His stats were also phenomenal as he finished 17th in rushing yards (1,327), tied for fourth in rushing touchdowns (20), to go along with 4.9 yards per carry. According to PFF, Hassan led all running backs from the power five conferences with 103 first downs, 18 more than the next. Interestingly enough, this doesn't have the Wolverines back ranked in their top 12. Thought of as a mid-round pick, there's some possible upside and great value for whoever picks him up.

Michigan RB Hassan Haskins leads all power five backs in carries without a fumble.
So much goes into being a talented back in the NFL -- speed, agility, and toughness come to mind, but also dependability, and Haskins (6'1/220) has that. The former Michigan running back had the most rushing attempts without a fumble since 2019 with 452. Two years without a fumble is a big deal and that will certainly get a team's attention. He hasn't been talked about much during the predraft, especially as he recovers from an ankle injury, but teams are going to be looking at him as a mid-round and possibly the fifth or sixth running back taken off the board.

Titans selected Michigan RB Hassan Haskins with the No. 131 overall pick in the 2022 NFL Draft.
Haskins (6'2/227) had easily his most productive college season in 2021, rushing for 1,327 yards and 20 touchdowns on 270 carries and gaining another 131 yards through the air. The performance earned him a spot on the first-team All-Big Ten team. He was unable to participate in the Senior Bowl or test in the pre-draft process after suffering a high-ankle sprain in Michigan's playoff loss to Georgia, but he did log an impressive 27 reps on the bench. That strength is a hallmark of his game. Haskins consistently drives through contact and has the balance to break tackles and keep going. He is never going to be a home run hitter, but he can grind out yards as the power complement in a backfield committee if given the opportunity. Haskins gives the Titans another mountainous running back on the depth chart behind Derrick Henry. Dontrell Hilliard is currently penciled in as the pass-catching specialist.

Maybe.not for long I'd say
Yeah me too. Totally.-OZ- said:If Henry misses time, I’d be being on H2 to carry the load by mid season. I don’t think he’s a CoP guy with the Titans nor the 2 in most games while DH starts. Fwiw, I made sure to take him where I have DH.
He did well in rookie mini camp and faded to fourth string once veterans showed up. His name is not mentioned or barely in articles nowAudible podcast a week back mentioned that something called Julius Chestnut was the standout RB behind Henry. Not sure that I'm putting a lot of stock in that at this point, but pushing aside Julius Chestnut would definitely be my prerequisite before getting excited about Haskins as the next man up.
Only one Chestnut worth discussing over the next several weeks 🌭Audible podcast a week back mentioned that something called Julius Chestnut was the standout RB behind Henry. Not sure that I'm putting a lot of stock in that at this point, but pushing aside Julius Chestnut would definitely be my prerequisite before getting excited about Haskins as the next man up.
Given the short turnaround before their Week 17 game, there’s a real possibility that Derrick Henry‘s injury keeps him out for this week. And with backup running back Dontrell Hilliard on the IR, that would leave just Hassan Haskins and Julius Chestnut in the backfield for the Titans. Regardless of the outcome of the Cowboys game, the Titans (7-8) would still have to defeat the Jaguars (7-8) in Week 18 to win the AFC South, making rest a more likely scenario for several key contributors.
“We’ve got some guys that have played a lot of football for us that are far less than 100 percent,” Vrabel said, via Nick Suss of the Tennessean. “It’s those guys that I appreciate that no matter what find a way to be here for this team. We’ll try to figure out who we have and who’s available and then make some decisions.”
Haskins has served as the primary kick returner for Tennessee in his rookie season. The Michigan product has 11 carries for 50 yards on the season, adding 31 receiving yards. He would be the priority over Chestnut if Henry does miss Thursday’s game.
The Titans will also be without starting quarterback Ryan Tannehill, who suffered what’s likely a season-ending ankle injury during Week 15. Per BetMGM, the Titans are currently 10-point underdogs at home against the Cowboys. They are +200 to win the AFC South.
