BIOGRAPHY: Four-year starter awarded varying degrees of All-Conference and All-American honors since his sophomore campaign. Senior-year totals included 111/6/11 after 85/5/11 as a junior when he missed two games with an elbow injury. Intercepted 24 passes during his college career.
POSITIVES: Opportunistic defensive back who plays with great toughness and awareness. Physical, flies around the action, and likes to mix it up. Explodes up the field in run defense, intimidates receivers who come across the middle, and aggressively lays his shoulders into opponents. Stays with assignments, displays good recognition in zone coverage, and works well with teammates. Solid special teams player on coverage units.
NEGATIVES: Does not possess top ball skills, has a marginal closing burst, and usually a half-step late in man coverage.
ANALYSIS: Lynch is a competitive player who works hard in every aspect of the game. Just an average athlete with marginal size and speed, he'll likely find his way onto a roster as a special teams player.
