Strengths:

  • Able to reach the second level with ease

  • Superior mobility

  • Bends at the knees

Weaknesses:

The biggest concern with Linderbaum has to do with his lack of size. At under 300 pounds, Linderbaum can sometimes be overwhelmed by bigger interior linemen. On several occasions, he is given the assistance of other linemen to help him win battles. At the next level, Linderbaum may need to add some size and develop more power to win one-on-one battles and finish opposing linemen. As effective as he is at using his hands in pass protection, he will need to diversify this aspect to avoid becoming too predictable.
