Scouting Report: Strengths
- A smooth mover and covers a lot of ground, working hard to mirror rushers; agile and keeps his feet moving.
- When his hand placement is right, Lindberg has the strong grip that allows him to manhandle opponents. Lindberg plays with a mean streak and keeps the nastiness going through the whistle.
- Eases out of his stance and has a finisher's mentality. Bends his knees, has above-average mobility and keeps his base square to adjust to counters.
- He's infinitely coachable and athletically gifted with the ideal frame, physique, weight distribution, knee bend and hand strength to be molded into a special blocker.
- Has good footwork and technique. Balanced and agile pass protection set with excellent hand placement.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
- As a pass protector, Lindberg gets caught reaching and lunging when matched up against quickness.
- Tends to slip off blocks when going against bigger linemen, and he too often finishes plays on the ground.
- Flashes the ability to move his man with his hands, but is not yet consistent in this area.
- Attacks when necessary, though he won't consistently dominate and can lose balance overextending.
