4. OG Chris Lindstrom, Boston College (OT)
6-4, 308: The strength was a given, and there was no questioning the run blocking ability. And then he ripped off a 4.91 in the 40 at the combine.
There’s enough talent and athleticism there to try out at right tackle, and he might just stick on the outside. However, he doesn’t have the length to go along with the pure blocking talent – he’s going to end up at living at guard.
No, he’s not a massive blaster without the bulk to destroy too many NFL defensive tackles, but he’ll make a living as a technician of a right guard where his quickness will dominate in a zone-blocking scheme.
In terms of angles and doing all the little things right, it’s all there – he’d be a sure-thing top 20 pick if he was around 320ish on a 6-5ish frame – but as is he’s just fine. He’ll be impossible to get around as an interior pass blocker, and he’s more than capable of packing a punch, too.
Projected Round: Early Second
Real Value: Second
