2012 NFL Draft: Pitt's Brandon Lindsey Impresses With His Pass Rushing

There are quite a few Pittsburgh Panthers players in the 2012 East West Shrine Game in St. Petersburg, Florida. One player in particular really stood out in practice on Wednesday, according to National Football Post's Wes Bunting.

It was good to see Pittsburgh OLB Brandon Lindsey rush a little off the edge Wednesday during 1 on 1 drills. He showcased a good first step and even after one day looks the most natural of the group of pass rushers so far this week. He displays the ability to cleanly change directions off his speed rush and keep tackles off balance with the spin as well. However, he's still not dynamic enough in any area of the game to warrant much more than mid-round pick.

Earlier in the week, Lindsey had struggled in practice in normal linebacker drills, but he seemed to shine on Wednesday when he was able to showcase his ability to get to the passer.
