Overview

Lindley was banged up some in his senior season (therefore production is down) but for the most part has been a durable defender for the University of Kentucky over his career. Lindley is a slender built player with great athleticism that was the Wildcats most active coverage defender. Not a physical run support player but is a willing tackler and leverages the ball well. Solid reactor in zone and man schemes to jump patterns and make plays on the ball. Lindley isn’t an elite corner but has the tools to develop into a solid contributor as a corner in sub packages (nickel back) as well as special teams.

Analysis

Strengths

Lindley is an athletic corner with great height, long arms and good speed. He’s an instinctive performer in both coverage and coming up in run support. Competitive player who wasn’t afraid to square-up in man against No. 1 targets in the SEC. Lindley had a productive college career, earning all-conference recognition, playing against elite competition.

Weaknesses

Lindley lacks the necessary weight and bulk to match up against physical receivers and tackle power backs where he isn’t always physical in perimeter run support. In coverage, he’s inconsistent to transition and lacks great recovery speed and burst and can be beaten deep.
