2012 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:

Ryan Lindley, QB, San Diego State

Ryan Lindley is a bit of a hit or miss quarterback prospect who has some real strong points to his game (in addition to some deficiencies, which could ultimately hurt his draft stock and possibly push him into an undrafted free agent).

Lindley has the right height and size to be an NFL quarterback. As one might assume, he possesses a very strong arm and delivers the football with zip. It appears he has learned to put a little more touch on the shorter passes rather than fire it in as hard as he can. When moving in and out of the pocket at his own pace, he can still throw an accurate ball. His long legs create big strides which can cause trouble for him in tight spaces. It takes time for him to get moving and if his feet are calm, he can become very inaccurate. If he has to deal with pressure up the middle, he doesn't shuffle and gather his feet to throw cleanly, which again causes inaccurate passes.

His throwing motion is a bit all over the place, but that's something NFL teams can improve upon in practice. A strong combine could push him into the middle rounds but for now, he's a risky pick after a sub par showing in the Senior Bowl.
