Scouting Report: Strengths
- Lindberg has the size teams look for at the tackle spots, and that is probably enough to get him a look as a swing tackle.
- Long enough to provide some position versatility, potentially capable of holding up at guard or even at right tackle.
- Shows a good feel for combo blocks, and Lindberg displays good quickness and flexibility when moving to the second level, capable of sealing the back side on reach blocks
- In the run game, he plays with a mean streak and does a nice job generating a push at the initial point of attack. He can get outside and does a decent job landing blocks in space.
- Awareness is above-average for his limited experience. Sells trap block and can turn to seal. Fluid getting to and adjust at the second level.
- Uses his hands well, with good hand placement to maximize his powerful punch. Lindberg shows impressive coordination between his upper and lower body when moving in pass protection.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
- Flashes the ability to move his man with his hands, but is not yet consistent in this area.
- Has a bad habit of panicking on reach blocks, lunging, and grabbing rather than trusting his athleticism to get him in position, which could lead to frequent flags for holding.
- As a pass protector, Lindberg gets caught reaching and lunging when matched up against quickness.
