Stats (CFBstats.com-through 11/17/2011)
Lindley has a nice, quick release, looks like he has nice footwork, and he throws a catchable ball. He puts nice zip on his throws, and can make the tough passes like quick outs, mid-outs. Sometimes his arm strength can be a negative for him, as he tends to make some overthrows and his accuracy numbers are reflective of that. He has not completed more than 57.7 percent of his passes in a single season and had 45 interceptions as of 11/19/11. Doesn’t make great decisions under pressure, and has a lot of developing to do in terms of pocket passing. Not a great athlete, but has excellent size at 6’4″ 230 pounds. Delivery slightly resembles that of Philip Rivers, as he releases the ball from about his ear, and sometimes that will lead to bad trajectory on the ball or defensive linemen able to knock it down at the LOS.
PROS: Size, arm strength, footwork, quick release, able to make all the throws
CONS: Accuracy, decision making under pressure, interceptions, athletic ability (not going to get positive yards scrambling)
