Overview:

Henderson was highly productive at Louisiana Tech, where he played in 36 games, had 147 receptions, for 2878 receiving yards, and 28 receiving touchdowns. He was a go-to receiver, a solid pass catcher, tough to take down, and he has good speed. He is also a solid blocking receiver, he breaks tackles with ease, he makes defenders miss with ease, is a good deep threat, a good redzone threat, he consistently beats his defender, and a dynamic play maker on offense. On top of that, he is a special teams standout, where he is a dynamic return man. He is a bit undersize, and some would say his production is a product of the competition he faced at Louisiana Tech. With that said, Henderson is a early day 3 pick at worst, with a great chance of being a day 2 pick.
