Strong Points

He was a role player for an elite defense, but Tindall flashes some traits that suggest he can become something more. He’s an outstanding athlete, an explosive mover who has the ability to go sideline to sideline and the length and physicality to stack and shed blockers in the run game. He plays with a physical approach. He’s a fluid mover who can cover a lot of ground, and his physicality and speed show up as a blitzer, where he can make plays. He’ll be a core special-teamer as well.

Weak Points

Tindall lacks teammate Nakobe Dean’s feel for the game. Issues showed up too often in coverage, where Tindall seemed hesitant when dropping into zone, without the reactionary athleticism to shadow athletic tight ends in man.

Summary

It’s fair to wonder if simply playing more reps will sharpen Tindall’s instincts and untap his remaining potential. At worst, he’s a good rotational piece and special teams contributor.

Final Grade: 3rd/4th Round
