Brian Linthicum

SD 2011 Ranking: #27

Position: TE

Experience : Senior

Strengths : Veteran proven player capable of making big plays.

Weakness : Taking his game to another level and improve as a blocker.

Overall : There is no mistaking the talent Linthicum has for catching the football. If you're looking for a player who has a chance to be drafted in the next NFL Draft, look at Linthicum as he is an above average pass catcher capable of stretching the field.

Why They Made The List : The Spartans have great depth at tight end and with how Mark Dantonio uses the tight end we fully expect a big year from all three of them. Linthicum has proven his worth as a Spartan and fans should expect him to reach another level this fall.
