Phillip Lindsay wanted to make sure players snubbed by this year’s NFL combine knew they weren’t alone.
The former Colorado star missed the NFL Scouting Combine and was eventually picked up as an undrafted free agent by the Broncos in 2018. He ended up making the Pro Bowl as a rookie.
“If you didn’t get an invite to the combine, don’t sweat it,” he wrote in part on Twitter. “Use it as motivation. Remember you only need one opportunity and that’s your PRO DAY.”
He ended the tweet with a hashtag, “#whatsAcombine.”
If you didn’t get an invite to the combine, don’t sweat it. Use it as motivation. Remember you only need one opportunity and that’s your PRO DAY. 20 RBs got drafted, but how many do you hear about 🤔? #whatsAcombine #Probowl

Lindsay, who was the first undrafted offensive rookie in NFL history to be selected to a Pro Bowl, had a breakout season in Denver.
He rushed for 1,037 yards and nine touchdowns as the Broncos finished 6-10.
