2012 NFL Draft Scouting Report: Ryan Lindley, QB, San Diego State
San Diego State quarterback Ryan Lindley is an intriguing midrange prospect in the 2012 NFL Draft. With a little coaching in certain areas of his game, the senior passer could develop into a dangerous starter at the next level.
In 2010, Lindley threw for 3,830 yards and 28 touchdowns. His senior campaign was a little weaker, primarily from losing targets, as he racked up 3,153 yards and 23 scores. In each of his last three seasons as a starter, he tossed at least 23 scoring strikes and threw for more than 3,000 yards.
Expected draft placement
Lindley is a project quarterback whose skill set just needs refinement before he can become a viable NFL starter. Expect to hear his name in the fourth round of the draft, and we don't expect him to slide out of the fifth.
