All you that think he was drafted to be a G.....   many sources over last couple weeks have been saying that a lot of teams believe Lindstrom would be able to play a mean RT (he did before at BC by the way).

We drafted him to play RT and the fallback is for G.

Possibly guard year one and kicks out to RT late. Don't think he'll beat out Sambrailo this year.

Remember Carpenter? Gave him a multi year contract too. Not understanding the money given out if they were taking Lindstrom. Just stupid.

People also need to understand that G is a much more important position than it used to be, sort of like how teams are seeming to value elite DT over DE. G is the new RT. You gotta be able to defend against line wreckers like Aaron Donald.

Could play OT in a pinch. He is a perfect fit for the zbs. Very mobile and plays with a mean streak. He will probably start right away.

“On and on the projections go for offensive linemen in this week’s NFL Draft.

There is no debate about Boston College’s Chris Lindstrom. He is a guard. Period.

Lindstrom is expected to be the top “true” guard selected, maybe late in the first round or early in the second. He said at the NFL Combine he had been in contact with the Broncos.”

Find me one thread or article or tweet anywhere from before now that suggested Lindstrom as our #1 pick?
