Pos: 
Explosive ball carrier who can score from any point on the field. Displays outstanding vision and instincts and quickly gets through running lanes. Has a burst through the hole, immediately gets to top speed and easily beats defenders into the open field. Patiently waits for blocks to develop and runs behind his pads. Squeezes through small creases in the offensive line and sifts through the trash to create yardage. Keeps his feet moving and plays with tremendous quickness and suddenness. Runs with balance and body control and gets a lot of momentum going up the field. Solid pass catcher, extends his hands and snatches the ball away from his frame. Consistently keeps the action in bounds and works to pick up extra yardage.
Neg: 
Easily knocked off balance by the initial hit and gets brought down at the point by a single defender. Doesn’t pick up much yardage off initial contact.
Analysis: 
Henderson does not have the build to be a feature runner at the next level but is accomplished enough to be a third-down back or situational runner. His speed and ability to pick up big chunks of yardage and produce as a pass catcher out of the backfield will be very attractive in the upcoming draft.
