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

04/15/2014 - Five players who should be on the Carolina Panthers' draft radar: TE Arthur Lynch, Georgia: With the Panthers expected to operate out of more two-tight end sets in 2014, they recently signed Ed Dickson to pair with incumbent starter Greg Olsen. But Dickson's deal is only one year and using a mid-round pick on Lynch would add instant depth and a long-term option. He has a NFL frame with experience lining up both inline and in the slot in Georgia's pro-style attack. Lynch likely won't separate easily in the NFL, but he's a coordinated athlete who isn't shy about getting his hands dirty as a blocker and projects as a reliable possession target and No. 2 TE on the depth chart. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com

01/01/2014 - PLAYERS TO WATCH: Georgia TE Arthur Lynch has put together a strong senior season for the Bulldogs with 24 catches for 390 yards.

Expect starting QB Hutson Mason to look to Lynch as a safety valve over the middle early and often during the Gator Bowl. - The Sports Xchange

09/24/2013 - Georgia tight end Arthur Lynch is all for improving the rights of college athletes. He doesn't think writing the letters "APU" on a wristband will lead to significant change. Several Georgia linemen took part in a low-key protest last weekend known as All Players United, joining several athletes from Georgia Tech and Northwestern in a gesture that most players and coaches didn't even know happened until after their games.

Lynch said Tuesday that change "is not going to come from disorganized hashtags on your wrist. That's not how it's done." Georgia coach Mark Richt says the group that organized the protest, the National College Players Association, seems to have "pretty legitimate concerns." The advocacy organization is pushing for better health care for athletes and more scholarship money, among other things. - AP Sports

08/26/2013 - 2013 PRESEASON ALL-SEC FIRST TEAM (COACHES): TE - Arthur Lynch, Georgia,...One of the country's top-10 returning tight ends in 2012 season receiving yards ... Appeared in 14 games making 13 starts in 2012, and had 24 receptions for 431 yards and three touchdowns ... Recipient of team's Most Improved Player award. - Georgia football

08/21/2013 - TOP GEORGIA PROSPECTS FOR THE 2014 NFL DRAFT: 4. TE Arthur Lynch (6-5, 258, 4.82)...Lynch's strength and awareness as an in-line blocker rank among his most impressive attributes at this point in his career. He is quick off the snap, latches onto defenders quickly and securely and is competitive. He is particularly effective on combination blocks in which he initially helps an offensive tackle double-team a defensive lineman before switching off to chip a linebacker at the second level. His ability to handle this role is critical to Georgia's success running the ball.

Defenses rarely paid much attention to Lynch a season ago. He set and tied his career high of three catches in one game six times last season and often was wide open when doing so as most of the time the plays came off of play-action. Lynch shows reliable hands and has a big frame to shield defenders from the ball but he isn't going to run away or make many defenders miss in the open field. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com

08/21/2013 - TOP GEORGIA PROSPECTS FOR THE 2014 NFL DRAFT: 4. TE Arthur Lynch (6-5, 258, 4.82)...With all of the attention heaped upon Mitchell, Murray and Gurley, it is easy for fans to lose Lynch in the limelight. After all, Lynch only emerged as a starter last season and caught just 24 passes for 431 yards and four scores in what many characterized as a "breakout" season. Rest assured, however, that NFL scouts are paying close attention to Lynch, who showed flashes last season of emerging as one of the better all-around tight ends in the country.

Lynch signed with Georgia as a highly regarded prep prospect and earned immediately playing time, seeing action in 11 games as a true freshman and even starting a game. He caught just two passes for 17 yards and was asked to redshirt a year later due Georgia's depth at the position. Lynch was back on the regular team in 2011 but served strictly as a blocker, not catching a single pass all season long. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com

Named the team's Most Improved Player, the 6-5, 254-pound Lynch posted career highs in receptions, yards and touchdowns in 2012. He had three catches for 50 yards and completed a pass on a fake punt that led to a touchdown versus Alabama in the Southeastern Conference Championship Game. - Georgia football
