If the last name Lindstrom sounds familiar it’s because his brother Chris was a top 15 pick just a few years back landing with the Atlanta Falcons. While sharing that bloodline is definitely a positive, Lindstrom simply isn’t the prospect his brother was.

Lindstrom lacks elite size and doesn’t have the athleticism of some of the other interior offensive linemen on this list. What he does have is a boatload of experience and a fighter’s mentality. Linstrom is a physical player who will battle with anyone. He’s tough as hell and will fight and wrestle with a defender until the whistle blows and sometimes even beyond that.

Lindstrom will never be a guy who is going to be 20 yards down the field leading a running back down the field. He does have plenty of room for growth though. If he can add some weight to his frame, and work on the more technical aspects of the position he could one day blossom into a starter in the league.

He’s probably someone the Vikings would look at in round six as a developmental center. The toughness he plays with isn’t something that can be taught, but his concerns are something that can be corrected with coaching, and experience.
