I think it really depends on what you mean by depolarized, but a spherical particle like this scatters light with a complicated, but wholly foretellable (by Mie theory) and reproducible polarization dependence on scattering direction. So you imagine a farfield radiation diagram for the scattered light. To get the full picture, a "radiation diagram" would be a complex Jones vector field on the surface of a unit sphere. Each point on the unit sphere represents the direction defined by the ray joining the sphere's centre and the surface point in question. At each point, two complex quantities define the relative intensity and polarisation of the scattered wave. This will be a complicated object: as shown in Born and Wolf "Principles of Optics" section 14.5 ("Diffraction by a conducting sphere: Theory of Mie), this polarization field can be exquisitely sensitive to position on our unit sphere. But there is one, consistent, reproducible and only one such polarization state for each point on the unit sphere sphere. You don't get the polarization state randomly varying with time if the Mie scatterer is lit by coherent, polarized light.
So some people call this complicated polarization scrambling "depolarization" and what you have drawn is a fairly accurate intuitive guide to how this polarization scrambling arises.
True depolarization arises from thes phenomenons:
The scattering properties of your Mie object to fluctuate randomly with time: these properties can be (i) orientation, if the object is not spherically symmetric (e.g. tumbling polar molecule), (ii) length dimensions if a micro- as opposed to molecular sized object vibrates, (iii) relative positions of scatterers if more than one scatterer is involved.
The mixing of many such scatterings as you have drawn above by objects whose relative positions and orientations fluctuate randomly with time.
The relationship between polarizations of incoming and scattered light is also fundamentally bound up with the exchange of angular momentum between the light and the medium it interacts with. For further explanation of this statement, see Chapter 18 of the Third Volume of the "Feynman Lectures on Physics". This chapter is called "Angular Momentum".
There is a simple way to summarise all these complicated mechanisms: these are the interactions of light with a thermalized system of scatterers.
