Strengths Weaknesses

STRENGTHS: Good-sized frame with thick legs, broad shoulders and good muscle definition throughout. Good strength for the position and gets physical in the run game with powerful hands and a nasty temperament to sustain and redirect his man.

Nice job on seal blocks, engaging with proper angles, good knee bend and natural balance. Agile blocker to recover and hold up in space to get to the second level and take out the LB/DB.

Powerful ballcarrier and is tough to tackle with his stout frame. Becomes an athlete after the catch to do something with the ball. Precise route-runner with clean footwork. Big, reliable hands. Very smart on and off the field and plays with a motivated attitude.

WEAKNESSES: Lacks sudden quickness to easily beat press coverage or explode out of his breaks. Slow starter and takes a few moments to gear down and get back up to full speed - won't easily create separation.

Would like to see him consistently do more after initial contact as a ballcarrier. Will fight the ball and have his share of focus drops. Strong effort blocker, but does have some technique flaws that need addressed - needs to improve his awareness to eliminate missed assignments.

Career production is below average, especially in a pro-style offense with a quarterback (Aaron Murray) who set several SEC passing records.

--Dane Brugler (2/6/14)

Player Overview

Although the Georgia offense has to replace two of its top targets from a year ago (Tavarres King, Marlon Brown), senior quarterback A.J. Murray has more excitement about the 2013 group than last year's. And a big reason for that is the development of Lynch.

He had just nine catches over the first nine games of 2012, but finished strong with three catches in each of the final five games, proving to be a reliable pass-catcher in crucial games for his quarterback. Lynch looks the part at 6-5 and 260 pounds and if he can improve upon his second half production from a year ago, he will be one of the top SEC tight ends this season. (9/1/13)

05/12/2014 - A closer look at the Dolphins' picks: Round 5/155 - Arthur Lynch, TE, 6-5, 258, Georgia...Lynch is regarded as more of a blocking TE than a receiver, and the Dolphins seemed to need a pass-catching TE. Lynch (30 receptions, 459 yards, five touchdowns last season) said his receiving skills have improved. The Dolphins have TE Charles Clay as the receiver. Lynch will likely compete with blocking TEs Dion Sims and Michael Egnew for playing time. - The Sports Xchange
