Lance Zierlein of, who compares Henderson to Eric Weems, wrote the following within his scouting report:

Henderson's lack of hesitation and his ability to get to top speed quickly and stay there is what gives him a shot at having early success as both a punt and kick returner. While Henderson could have an NFL career as a return man only, he has enough potential to warrant a roster spot as both a return man and a slot for teams looking for a playmaker."

"Henderson is an explosive athlete with elite speed. He's a hybrid skill player who could line up all over the field but must produce as a return specialist to make an NFL roster."
