Round 2, Pick 39: Chris Lindstom, IOL, Boston College
After retaining both Smith and Dotson, there is only one void along the offensive line at right guard. With Caleb Benenoch moving to tackle this offseason, it appears that his experiment can be chalked up as a failure.
As it appears that Alex Cappa is the front-runner to win the job at right guard at this point, there is a strong chance that another interior lineman could be drafted in the front half of this year’s draft. Here, the Bucs take Chris Lindstrom from Boston College.
One of the most agile lineman in this year’s draft, Lindstrom tested in the 97th percentile in the 40 yard dash, 98th percentile in the broad jump, and 83rd percentile in the 20 yard shuttle. While he tested as a quick offensive lineman, he went on the field during positional drills and proved it as well, showing great hip flexibility and lateral quickness.
A hot commodity at this point, Lindstom looks like a fringe first rounder, and at this point lands in Tampa Bay early in the second round. The Bucs get their guard to fortify their offensive line.
