BIO: Four-year starter awarded varying degrees of All-Conference honors since his freshman campaign. Led the team in rushing as a senior posting 148/872/17 while also totaling 67/528/5 as a receiver. Junior totals included 162/840/16 on the ground with 60/286/2 as a pass catcher. Posted a career-high 98 receptions as a freshman, then followed up with 78 the next season.
POSITIVES: Ultra-productive ball-handler who projects as a third-down specialist in the NFL. Elusive, quick-footed and bounces around piles or defenders. Keeps the action in bounds and follows blocks anywhere on the field. Finds the running lanes, has a burst through the hole and immediately cuts back against the grain. Natural receiver who extends to make the reception away from his frame. Gives effort as a blocker.
NEGATIVES: Slow adjusting off the initial hit, rarely picks up yardage off initial contact and not a strong ball carrier. Considered an adequate worker by NFL scouts.
ANALYSIS: Benefiting from the passing offense at Texas Tech, Henderson has made the most of his opportunities the past four seasons. Lacks the size to be a featured ball carrier, yet should be an outstanding situational runner\receiver out of the backfield.
