Add another quarterback to our list of players that we have interviewed. We already talked with Brandon Weeden and Russell Wilson and yesterday we talked to local boy, Ryan Lindley (Draft Countdown).

Here is his scouting report from Pro Football Weekly:

Very smart, well-built, hard-throwing pocket passer with limited escapability and feel for pressure. Misses wide-open receivers under no duress and makes his receivers adjust to the ball. His accuracy and placement are very inconsistent. Struggles to manipulate his arm and throwing platform. Faltered against better competition (see Missouri, TCU).

Lindley is projected to be a 5th rounder and could be a player we use as the 3rd string QB. He will get the opportunity to work with both Philip Rivers and Billy Volek. The local fans will love that we are bringing in talent from SDSU. We have brought in a rookie 3rd string quarterback the last couple of years with the drafting of Jonathan Crompton and signing Scott Tolzien, but we eventually had let those guys during the season. Lindley could be our next 3rd String QB project.
