Scouting Report

Last season, Lindsey completed 67 percent of his passes and threw for 3,620 passing yards with 37 touchdowns and three interceptions. He has a big arm capable of making every throw, from touch passes to deep shots down the field. Lindsey is more of a pocket passer than a dual-threat quarterback, but he navigates the pocket well, able to elude pressure and keep his eyes down field. From watching his highlights, it’s tough to get a feel for how he works through his progressions. Most clips see Lindsey locking on to one receiver and waiting for an opening before throwing a strike. But he also has good anticipation and can throw his receivers open. There will be a learning curve in the Big Ten, but he certainly seems to have the physical tools.
