"He's got to get back on the field if he wants to make this team," Joseph said of Henderson.

2017

The Broncos had quality intel on Henderson before drafting him in the third round out of Louisiana Tech. Head coach Vance Joseph's brother, Mickey, was on the Bulldogs' staff last season. Henderson might be labeled a one-year wonder, but what a year it was in Louisiana Tech's wide-open attack. Henderson tied for the national lead with 19 receiving touchdowns, was fifth in receiving yards with 1,535, and 20th in catches with 82. He also had two rushing touchdowns and two kick-return scores in 2016. Most impressively, Henderson broke 48 tackles in 2016, according to Pro Football Focus. The next best receiver broke 26 tackles. Henderson is a receiver in a running back's body in the mold of Golden Tate, but, given his limited route-running experience, he'll probably be most effective on hitches and screens as a rookie. That's probably okay as far as the Broncos are concerned. With Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders on the roster, Denver can probably do well with Henderson using his 4.46-second speed in the 40-yard dash and ability in the open field to turn quick-hitters and kickoffs into explosive plays.
