  • Trevard Lindley's Scouting Report
    By Matt McGuire

    Strengths: Nice height being listed at 6 feet tall ... Very solid timed speed ... Receivers simply have a tough time getting away from him because he is a master at press man coverage ... Great athleticism and recovery speed ... Outstanding ball skills ... Reliable wrap-up tackler who gets the job done ... Smooth backpedal with fluid hips ... Seems to have a knack for forcing and recovering fumbles ... Quick break on the ball.

    Weaknesses: Needs to add on about 12-15 pounds of bulk to be able to get physical at the jam in the NFL ... Less impressive player in zone coverage ... Needs to improve versus the run; do a better job of taking on a block ... Hand use must be improved at the line of scrimmage.

    Summary: Teams that run press man coverage will really like his skill set, and Tampa-2 bases will see him as an awkward fit ... Makes a lot of big plays at crucial points in big games, and this is what separates good corners from great corners.

    Player Comparison: Leigh Bodden. Bodden is one of the best press man corners in the NFL with outstanding ball skills. Lindley has a similar frame as well.
