"[He was] that seam-running slasher in that [Memphis] offense," one scout told longtime NFL scribe Bob McGinn, adding: "Whatever's there he just runs into it. If it's open he runs for 60 yards. He's really a feast-or-famine back."
Said a second scout of the 5-foot-8 1/2, 209-pound Henderson: "He's interesting. He's a stiff, one-cut, fast guy. Tough, not elusive. He can catch a ball, which will help him. He's intriguing because he does have the ability to hit the home run consistently."
