ENGLEWOOD Womens Courtland Sutton Jersey , Colo. (AP) — the first undrafted offensive player to make the Pro Bowl. He’s been too busy making tacklers miss and general managers regret passing him over in the NFL draft just because he stands 5-foot-8.“I’m an undrafted free agent. To be able to have 100 yards in a game was great. To get a touchdown, to be able to play at (Mile High Stadium), that’s the stuff right there that I dreamt about,” the Denver Broncos‘ rookie running back said Wednesday. “The Pro Bowl is something that you think like five years down the line, three years down the line.”After waiting seven rounds and never hearing his name called or his phone buzz on draft weekend, Lindsay signed with his hometown Broncos and when he survived cuts after training camp, he sought Hall of Famer Terrell Davis’ blessing to wear his old No. 30 jersey .Yet, Lindsay said he’s been so focused on his next opponent that he didn’t even ponder the possibility of making the Pro Bowl when a couple of Cleveland Browns players told him after their game Saturday night that “our whole linebacker room voted for you for the Pro Bowl.”Excluding special teams players, the only other undrafted rookie to make the Pro Bowl was Dallas Cowboys defensive back Everson Walls in 1981.“That tells you what he’s done,” coach Vance Joseph said. “His first day with us, he was the sixth halfback on the depth chart. The sixth! Obviously, being a rookie free agent. Didn’t go to the combine. Wasn’t drafted. … He came in here just trying to make our football team.”Lindsay started out as a special teams stud and didn’t even start in the backfield until midway through the season.“Now, he’s in the Pro Bowl, so that speaks to his work ethic, his heart and his talent,” Joseph said. “So, it’s amazing what he’s accomplished in such a short time.”Although Lindsay said, “Nobody knew about me when I got here, other than I was little,” teammate Bradley Roby said the veterans sure took notice of him right away.“Very impressive. I know this, when he first got here, OTAs, you kind of feel the rookies out, see how they move. And I always felt that his movement was good,” Roby said. “I was like, ‘This guy’s fast, he’s quick, accelerates.’ I was thinking like if he can run with the pads on, he’s going to be nice.“And he’s done nothing but prove that he’s worth. He should have been drafted, obviously. He’s a gem.”The wild-haired rookie cracked up his teammates during team introductions by saying, “I’m Phillip Lindsay, I’m from Colorado. And I went to Colorado.”Short and sweet.Just like his stride.The first player from the Broncos Futures Football middle school program to sign an NFL contract, Lindsay grew up in Aurora not far from the Broncos headquarters, and starred at Denver South High School and the University of Colorado Womens Von Miller Jersey , where his wild hair and relentless rushing style earned him the nickname “Tasmanian Devil.”Lindsay, who is nine rushing yards shy of 1,000 and whose 5.5-yard average is second in the league, said he’s eager to go to the Pro Bowl with teammate Von Miller, the game’s reigning MVP, and he’s also eager to finally meet Saquon Barkley, the running back from Penn State whom the Giants drafted second overall.Barkley is the only rookie running back who has more yards (1,155) than he does (991), although both have nine touchdown runs.“It’s going to be fun to be able to finally talk to Saquon,” Lindsay said. “We always heard about each other, but we never got to see each other. So, it will be cool to hang out with each other.”Lindsay had hoped to meet Barkley at the NFL combine last spring but he never received an invitation to the league’s annual gathering of top draft hopefuls, a snub that’s driven him all season along with going undrafted two months later.Lindsay said he hopes his remarkable rise will inspire kids everywhere who are overlooked underdogs.“You’ve got to keep pushing, you just never know. You’ve got to keep the faith no matter what,” Lindsay said. “Everybody can take anything from you, but they can’t take your faith. That’s what you’ve got to rely on. You’ve got to go for your dreams.” The UDFA corner has a pretty good shot at making the Denver Broncos roster."

Haffey/Getty ImagesThe Denver Broncos signed former Stanford cornerback Alijah Holder after the 2019 NFL Draft concluded. General Manager John Elway, Head Coach Vic Fangio, and the other Broncos decision-makers felt highly of Holder because they gave him an $18,000 signing bonus and a $30,000 guarantee(via 9NEWS Denver’s Mike Klis).Now Holder will join Vic Fangio’s Denver Broncos defense and look to crack the 53-man roster at cornerback.Alijah Holder ProfileHeight: 6-1 | Weight: 191 pounds | 40-time: 4.6 secondsArm Length: 32 1/2” | Hands: 9 1/2”Bench press: 9 reps | Vertical jump: 36.0 inches | Broad Jump: 121.0 inches3-Cone drill: 6.7 seconds | 20-Yard shuttle: 4.15 secondsHolder played a total of four seasons at Stanford and put up some solid numbers when healthy during his time there. During his four year career, he totaled 131 tackles, 6.5 tackles for a loss, 2 interceptions, 24 pass deflections, and 5 forced fumbles. This past season for Stanford, Holder totaled 58 tackles, 2.5 tackles for a loss, 9 pass deflections, and 1 forced fumble. The accolades earned by Alijah Holder during his time at Stanford via gostanford.com.2018 All-Pac-12 honorable mentionThree-time Pac-12 All-Academic (Second team in 2017, honorable mention in 2016 and 2018)Bednarik Award watch list (2018)Athlon All-Pac-12 preseason third team (2016)Now Holder joins a Denver Broncos secondary with a chance to crack the teams 53-man roster. The Broncos cornerback group is far from settled as we head into Training Camp. Veteran’s Chris Harris Jr. and Bryce Callahan figure to be your starters while second-year corner Isaac Yiadom will be looked at to make that second season jump. After those three, however, is where things get cloudy. You have journeyman cornerback De’Vante Bausby vying for that fourth cornerback spot while others like Horace Richardson, Trey Johnson, Linden Stephens along with Holder are likely fighting for one roster spot. We haven’t even factored in the potential role that Kareem Jackson could play at corner/safety as well. So there figures to be an open competition there unless the Broncos add another corner prior to the start of the season. Holder will certainly get a shot at earning a role in the Broncos defense this summer and there is a road where he can earn himself a 53-man roster spot. The goodAnytime a team makes a financial commitment to you as an undrafted free agent https://www.broncoslocker...n-miller-jersey , it really raises the odds of you sticking around. Obviously, they’re not going to pay you if they do not think you have a chance to stick around, so that alone is promising for Holder. This also wasn’t just your usual signing bonus given to Holder either. It greatly exceeded what the Broncos gave to their other prominent undrafted free agents the following few years. Holder was given $18,000 in guaranteed money AND another $12,000 according to 9NEWS Denver’s Mike Klis.So again, the Broncos made quite the financial commitment to Holder. A good sign that they believe he is part of their plans at cornerback moving forward. Another plus here for Holder is that he apparently is picking up the defense rather quickly. Broncos Defensive Coordinator Ed Donatell told reporters that Holder has “good things ahead of him”. Holder should be picking up the system rather quickly since he’s a great fit for it. He lacks the athleticism needed to be a man coverage guy and fits a cover-3 system much better. Add in his tackling ability, physicality, size/strength, and blitzing ability and you can see why the Broncos wanted Holder on their team. Fangio and Donatell have a good history of developing defensive backs as well, so all this bodes well for Holder. Finally, you have the current lack of depth at cornerback for the Broncos. After your first three, it is pretty much an open competition as I stated above. The financial commitment they made added with the lack of depth really does help his case moving forward this summer. The badHolder has dealt with injuries throughout his career at Stanford. These injuries limited him to just 12 total games from 2016 and 2017, but he did bounce back and remain healthy this past season. A shoulder injury ended his season after just four games in 2016 while a leg injury limited him to just 8 games in 2017. Now, he did remain healthy throughout 2018 and didn’t get any red flags and failed physicals during the draft process, so hopefully, he managed to shake the injury bug. His lack of athleticism is what really hurt him throughout the draft process. He ran a 4.6 40-time in front of scouts which is usually a big red flag. Anything below a 4.5 is usually a concern, so a 4.6 is a bit concerning. The scheme the Broncos run does help lower those concerns, but his ability to stick with receivers will be something to watch this summer. QuotableThe Athletic’s draft analyst Dane Brugler on Broncos cornerback Alijah HolderA three-star recruit out of high school, Alijah Holder led Oceanside to a 2013 league championship with 20 passes defended and two interceptions. He was the No. 35 cornerback in the 2014 recruiting class and committed to Stanford over Arizona and San Diego State. He made an immediate impact as a redshirt freshman, but battled injuries over the next two years. He started 10 games as a senior and finished second on the team with 10 passes defended. Holder looks the part with his athletic frame and outstanding length, using his long arms to ball search and disrupt with timing. He is nimble-footed in his movements, but spacing and eye discipline were issues on tape. He struggled to stay healthy over his career, missing most of 2016 (shoulder) and 2017 (leg). Overall, Holder is a smooth, balanced athlete (fourth-fastest three-cone at the Combine), but he doesn’t show the same suddenness after his injuries with suspect awareness to hold up in zone.Alijah Holder highlightsAlijah Holder’s roster status with the BroncosHolder is on the bubble but I really do like his chances. Again, the Broncos made a big commitment to him as an undrafted free agent so that once again shows that they think he is in their future plans. Also, the last few times the Broncos gave a UDFA this type of commitment, a majority of them (Jamal Carter and Phillip Lindsay) made the 53-man roster while Jeff Holland cracked the Broncos 10-man Practice Squad. So odds are that we will see him on the team in some capacity come this fall. The depth at corner is lacking and the real only competition he has ahead of him is Da’Vante Bausby who has been a journeyman throughout his career and is far from a lock as well. So if Holder stays healthy, continues to impress the coaches, and make plays, I think he makes the 53-man roster. At the very least, he will be on the Practice Squad come week one.
