Negatives
Inexperienced, has only started in 17 games [2 years total experience]. Struggles to set up pass rushing moves. Struggles to disengage against longer lineman. Will be pushed and stoned at the line by stronger linemen. Tends to win on pure speed and initial burst off the line. Inconsistent snap to snap. Looks stiff. Gets lost in the run game. Over pursues and runs self out of plays. Plays out of control and will slip and get off balance. Hot/Cold motor.

Overall
Lynch is an example of Disruption + Pressure > Pure Sack numbers. Needs snaps and experience to refine game. Only a 1.5 year starter and has sat out an entire year. Looks to transition into a pass rusher with the ability to line up all over the field. Great frame and length with room to grow. Needs to go somewhere where he will be motivated  and can learn to hone his craft.
OVERALL SCORE: 6.11
