Enrolled at the Clearwater International Academy in Florida, Hinds has only been playing football for the last couple years. He is originally from Nova Scotia, where he played more hockey than football. Before arriving in the Sunshine State, Hinds was a tight end and has admitted he didn’t even know how to get into a proper stance. As you can imagine, he is very raw in terms of technique, but there is clay here for Minnesota offensive line coach Brian Callahan to mold. Hinds has the physical tools to succeed, but time will tell on whether he can reach his potential.
