I really hope I'm wrong with Lindley, since he seems like a great kid. However, he is not nearly the player we saw last year, and I'm not sure if the injury has truly healed, or if he just can't put his game back together. I've really been watching Lindley this year as a prospect for the team, and he just appers very slow on the field, in straightline speed, reacting to players making cuts, etc.
Although Jacoby Ford's TD was only one play, and it is completely unfair to judge someone based on even a handful of plays, I think scouts will see him as a liability in the secondary, and will not grade him as a future starter, but as a nickel or dime back.
I've got him projected early fourth round. He's a 4.53 kid who is probably 5'10", 175-180 pounds, and is coming off a down year. Not a good combo.
