Lindsey hasn't necessarily wowed scouts this week, but they know he's being asked to do things he probably won't as a 3-4 rush 'backer or 4-3 "wide nine" defensive end at the next level. He did impress with his ability to play the edge and handle tight ends at the line, and intercepted a pass during Thursday's team work to make up for a drop earlier in the week.
WR Jarius Wright (Arkansas), 5-9/176
Several small-but-quick receivers from the Shrine Game have landed in the top 100 the past few years: Steve Smith (Utah/Carolina, not USC/Giants-Eagles), Deion Branch, Dexter Jackson, Deon Butler and Emmanuel Sanders. Wright's ability to eat up cushion was on full display on the St. Petersburg High School field, which portends a nice 40-yard dash time in upcoming workouts. His production in multiple facets of the Arkansas passing game, along with untapped potential as a receiver, could make him the next receiver on that top-100 list.
These two sound like interesting prospects.
Handling TEs at the line will be nice when we have to beat the Patriots in the playoffs next year.
Season Prediction: WAS - W, @ OAK - W, @ NYG - W, BUF - W, @ DAL - W, IND - L, @ PIT - L, @ TEN - W, PHI - L, @ CLE - W, CIN - L, TEN - W, @ JAX - W, @ IND - L, BAL - L, JAX - W = 10-6
