Phillip Lindsay was signed as an undrafted free agent by the Denver Broncos on this past May. This is an unusual path to the NFL, but it does happen. The Broncos may have struck gold with this rookie.
Lindsay played his college football in Colorado. After redshirting in 2013, he played in all 12 games in 2014. He led the team in return yards and kick returns. Lindsay finished 4th on the team in rushing and he averaged 4.9 yards per carry. He was off to a good start.

In 2016, he had 1,189 yards on 244 carries good for 5.1 yards per carry and 16 rushing touchdowns. He caught 47 passes (school record for a running back) for 390 yards and a touchdown as well.
In 2017, he rushed for 1,474 yards, fifth most in Colorado history, his 301 carries were the most in the country and 15 touchdowns, 14 of them rushing. This earned him Second Team All-Pac-12 honors.
