    It sounds like he may be a safety or RB in the NFL and is willing to play a position other than QB if asked to do so. He could be a solid special teams asset too.

    Definitely think his future is somewhere other the QB. Good kid to take a flyer on.

    I loved watching him play at NIU. He's a solid athlete and a football-smart guy, but probably not an NFL quality QB. I think he'll have a shot at making it in the NFL with his attitude. I think Tebow might have stuck in the NFL if he would have been willing to play another position. Lynch seems to have the attitude that he'll bust his butt doing anything to make it in the NFL. I really like his attitude.

    Not unexpected and given Lynch's attitude I expect him to make the team somewhere. I just don't know where yet but I feel they should keep him on offense rather than try to make a S out of him.

    Well, if anyone could get something out of him at QB, its Trestman.

    I don't think they are even attempting him at QB. More like RB/FB special teams...

    Wildcat offense maybe? Not a fan of that formation, though.

    Picking up Lynch in UDFA makes more sense than Fales in the 6th round. I don't see either as with the team in 2 years, but I hope I am wrong.
