Sanders initially thought a solution could be to have a separate HBCU combine since so few HBCU players get invited to the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis.

He planned to have the HBCU combine in Miami and make it into a big event.

He's since changed his mind and no longer wants to have a separate combine. He wants the NFL Scouting Combine to add more spots.

"They were going to allow 52 players I believe to come to that combine in Miami," Sanders said. "We can allow 52 players to come to that combine in Indy. It’s only four or five players for each position or maybe six if I’m doing my math correctly. Why should we be separate? Why should we be placed on another field where all the scouts aren’t coming, all the personnel’s not going to be there like they would normally be in Indy?"
