Denver Broncos: Rookie report card through the bye week
If you’ve seen any Denver Broncos broadcast at this point, you know the story about Phillip Lindsay.
He wasn’t invited to the Scouting Combine. He was too small to play in the NFL. He wasn’t drafted. He was a longshot to make the roster out of training camp.
Lindsay has pretty much embarrassed anyone who had a negative thing to say about him prior to the 2018 NFL Draft and looks like one of the best young playmakers at the running back position in the NFL.
The only rookie with more yards from scrimmage than Lindsay this season? Saquon Barkley, the second overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft.
Lindsay has proven himself capable of being a full-time back in the NFL and he gives the Broncos a huge edge offensively with his breakaway speed, vision, quickness, and toughness.
Player grade: A+
