Player Bio

USA Today included Tindall on its first-team All-American squad his senior year at Spring Valley High School in South Carolina, and he was also a National Defensive Player of the Year finalist. The four-star recruit couldn’t break through the Bulldogs’ depth chart to start in his first three seasons (2018: 17 tackles, three for loss with two sacks in 14 games; 2019: nine tackles, 1.5 sacks; 2020: 15 tackles, four for loss with three sacks in 10 games). Tindall did not start in 2021 but made his presence felt by ranking third on the national championship squad with 67 tackles, 7.5 for loss with 5.5 sacks in 15 appearances. — by Chad Reuter


Inside linebacker who proved his toughness and dependability in Georgia’s stop unit. Tindall played in a great scheme surrounded by NFL prospects, so projecting his pro potential is a little trickier. He has average size and instincts for work between the tackles, but the pursuit speed and tackling talent to run and hit from sideline to sideline. Play recognition versus the run and pass should improve with additional playing time. Tindall should be an early backup and instant four-phase special-teamer with the potential to eventually step into a starting role.


  • Became more decisive with diagnosis as the season progressed.
  • Plays his role inside the scheme.
  • Consistent to find his way to the football.
  • Maintains a wide base and squared pads when attacking gaps.
  • Sits down firm to maintain his fit.
  • Delivers a leveraged blow to climbing blockers.
  • Adequate sideline-to-sideline speed.
  • No premature leaps as chase tackler.
  • Widens and waits to snap hips into an open-field tackle.
  • Four-phase special teams experience.


  • Played with talent up front giving him an unusually clean work environment.
  • Loses sightlines on the play from the middle.
  • Can attack the block quicker and deeper near the line.
  • Runs himself into pursuit traffic at times.
  • Fails to recognize misdirection in the passing game.
  • Not great at squeezing targets from zone.

“Underrated player. He deserves more accolades as a player but with so many guys in that front, he gets forgotten a little bit.” — Scouting director for NFC team

TDS Take:

This is a great pick as our Defense needed more help at the LB position and this kid has so much upside and potential with limited play at Georga due to an immensely talented players on that Defense he should fit in well on our Defense with the young veteran leadership on this team and will reach his full potential in time. I can see him playing a key role on Special teams as well.
