On Tuesday, he named each team that wasn’t in attendance in an Instagram video.
“Twenty-four teams. Twenty-four teams came to witness our kids yesterday in its entirety (Editor’s note: 22 teams were reportedly at Jackson State’s pro day Monday). And I appreciate you,” Sanders said. “But, there’s 32 teams in this Crayola box. Therefore, the Dolphins, the Broncos, the Texans, the Bills, the Buccaneers, the Ravens, the Panthers, the Browns, the Vikings, and the Eagles, where art thou? You could have sent somebody man. You could have shown up just a little bit.”
Sanders said he won’t forget the teams that didn’t show up.
“I guarantee you that you’re going to go to Mississippi State, and Ole Miss. I guarantee you, you’re going to show up there,” Sanders said. “I understand, you’re saying they have more talent, I understand. Guess what? We’re coming. We’re coming. We’re coming. And when we arrive, you better be here. Because our kids deserve it.”
Overall, Sanders said he feels the pro day was “phenomenal” except for the teams that weren’t there. He wrote in his Instagram caption that he understands, but he doesn’t condone the behavior of attending other in-state pro days while skipping his.

“Yesterday was phenomenal, I mean flat out phenomenal,” Sanders said. “All the kids that participated in pro day, hats off to you, God bless you. The people that came in support, the coaches from the SWAC schools and various schools that came there to stand for your kid, hey, I love you.”
