BIOGRAPHY: Two-year starter used at both guard spots. All-Conference selection as a junior.

POSITIVES: Hard-working small-area blocker with limited size. Blocks with a nasty attitude, quick in all aspects of the game, and works hard until the whistle blows. Solid position blocker who walls defenders from the action and makes good use of angles. Keeps his feet moving, blocks with good hand technique, and stays square.

NEGATIVES: Lacks balance and overextends into blocks. Struggles to adjust and beaten by quick opponents. Marginally effective in space.

ANALYSIS: Lindner is a tough, overachieving lineman who did a good job last season. He possesses marginal upside, yet his ability to play either guard spot could help him to catch on as an inexpensive backup.

PROJECTION: Undrafted Free Agent
