Biography: Former rotational ball-carrier who became ECU?s feature back as a senior and posted career ground totals of 239/1180/6 the side while adding 19/151/1 as a pass catcher. Sat on the sidelines in 2008 after undergoing season-ending knee surgery. Junior totals of ?07 included 66/205/5 on the ground, when he shared time with Tennessee Titans? first round pick Chris Johnson.
Positives: One time highly rated running back who suffered with injuries the past several seasons. Patient, waits for blocks develop and picks his way on the inside, finding the running lanes and squirting through the small hole in the defense. Runs low to the ground and underneath his pads, keeps his feet moving on contact, and works to get as much out of every carry as possible. Solid receiver out of the backfield. Effectively picks up blocking assignments.
Negatives: Possesses average speed and not a back who beats defenders around the corner. Struggles to pick up the difficult yardage and does not break tackles.
Analysis: Lindsay has the skills necessary to be a potential third-down back or situational player at the next level if his knees check out.
