  Tyler Linderbaum's approach to the NFL Draft isn't much different from his approach at Iowa. "The biggest thing for me is being myself," Linderbaum said Thursday at the NFL Combine. "I'm not trying to change who I am once I get here. I'm here for a reason, and that's just because I've been being myself." Even after suffering a mid-foot sprain that will keep him out of the combine drills, he wouldn't change his decision to play in the Citrus Bowl. "I'd play in that game if I could," Linderbaum said. "Hopefully go out and win." Linderbaum had the same even-keel demeanor in his media availability as he had throughout the season. He's doing the work in the same place he's been for four years. While many draft prospects spend their pre-draft months with trainers in places like Texas or Florida, Linderbaum has been preparing at Iowa's football facility. "If it ain't broke, don't fix it," Linderbaum said. Linderbaum said strength and conditioning coach Raimond Braithwaite has "a lot of great knowledge," and Braithwaite's staff has not made any significant changes from what he was already doing. - The Gazette

  Linderbaum is widely considered the top center in this year's draft class. While relatively small at 6-foot-3 and 290 pounds, his lateral quickness and technique have helped his draft stock. He won't be worrying too much about whether he'll be a top-10 pick. "I'll let all the coaches and GMs and all those guys decide if they think I'm a top-10 player in the draft," Linderbaum said. Linderbaum also doesn't have to worry about it too much when NFL general managers think as highly as they do of the former Solon prep. Ravens general manager Eric DeCosta described Linderbaum as the "type of guy that could really be the centerpiece of your offensive line" and compared him to Yanda. "When we look at a guy like Tyler Linderbaum, we see a lot of the same qualities," DeCosta said Wednesday. "Tough. Gritty. Very, very athletic. Very, very intelligent. Smart." Linderbaum already has met formally with several NFL teams, including the Packers, Giants, Jets, Dolphins, Bears and Bengals. - The Gazette

  2021 RIMINGTON TROPHY WINNER: University of Iowa junior center Tyler Linderbaum has been named one of three finalists for the Rimington Trophy, which is awarded to the nation’s premier center in college football. Linderbaum (6-foot-3, 290-pounds) was a finalist for the Rimington Trophy a year ago, joining Austin Blythe (2015) and Bruce Nelson (2002) as Iowa’s third finalist in school history. The Solon, Iowa, native has started 34 consecutive games at center for the Hawkeyes after playing as a defensive lineman as a true freshman. Iowa has posted a 26-8 record during that span. The Hawkeyes won their final six games in 2020 and began the 2021 season with six straight wins. - Iowa Football

  2021 BIG TEN RIMINGTON-PACE OFFENSIVE LINEMAN OF THE YEAR (COACHES): Tyler Linderbaum, Iowa,...Linderbaum becomes the ninth Hawkeye, and first since Tristin Wirfs in 2019, to win Big Ten Offensive Lineman of the Year. The Solon, Iowa, native has started 33 consecutive games at center for the Hawkeyes after playing as a defensive lineman as a true freshman. Iowa has posted a 26-7 record during that span. The Hawkeyes won their final six games in 2020 and began the 2021 season with six straight wins. He was tabbed a midseason first-team All-American by four outlets, including Associated Press, The Athletic, CBSSports.com and Sporting News. He was named preseason first-team All-Big Ten and preseason first-team All-America by five media outlets. Linderbaum was also named to the Big Ten Conference preseason honors list, as well as the Rimington Trophy and Outland Trophy watch lists. He is one of four finalists for the Rotary Lombardi Award, and one of three finalists for the Outland Trophy. - Iowa Football

  Linderbaum was one of three Rimington Trophy finalists last season as college football's most dominant center. He easily could've turned pro; a mid-second-round pick (which he was projected to be) is in line for a four-year rookie contract worth between $6 million and $7 million. But instead of assuredly hearing his name called in the NFL Draft (which begins Thursday), Linderbaum was content to be leading the Hawkeyes' offensive line into another season. "I wasn't interested," Linderbaum flatly said Tuesday.

The Solon native was so confident in returning to Iowa City that he didn't even request feedback from the College Advisory Committee, a service that helps draft-eligible underclassmen know where they stand in the eyes of NFL executives and scouts. "I wanted to compete with my buddies," Linderbaum said. "There's a lot more to do, a lot more to improve on...I was coming back for sure." As you can tell, Linderbaum wasn't wild about delving too deeply into this subject. He seemed more focused on stiff-arming media attention that will continue to come his way. "A big thing for me is just to focus on the program and my teammates," Linderbaum said. "I really am not interested in what's going around outside, what media are saying, what other people are saying." - Iowa City Press-Citizen

  2020 RIMINGTON TROPHY FINALIST: Tyler Linderbaum, Iowa,...University of Iowa sophomore center Tyler Linderbaum has been named one of three finalists for the Rimington Trophy, which is awarded to the nation's premier center in college football. Linderbaum joins Austin Blythe (2015) and Bruce Nelson (2002) as Iowa's third finalist in school history. In eight games this season, Linderbaum helped anchor an Iowa offense that ranks second in the Big Ten in fewest sacks allowed, first downs, and fourth down conversions and scoring offense, and third in red zone offense. - Iowa Football

  Tyler Linderbaum isn't done playing college football. The sophomore center from Solon announced Thursday afternoon via Twitter that he will return to the University of Iowa for at least one more season. Linderbaum has started 21 consecutive games for Iowa and has been named to various all-American teams in the past couple of weeks. "The 2020 season was both challenging and incredibly rewarding," Linderbaum said. "I had the best time playing football with great teammates and coaches who are invested in making me a better football player and a better person. The chance to play football in the NFL is a dream of mine, but I am not done being an Iowa Hawkeye. "There are only a few years I can play college football, and I believe there is more to do and more to learn. I look forward to continuing to work with my teammates and coaches to reach my potential in 2021." - The Gazette

  Linderbaum was asked this week how much he has thought about the NFL, and if he'll have a decision to make after this season, as far as considering entering the draft. He brushed off that talk rapidly. "My focus is on this season," he said. "To me, I still have a lot of improvement I need to make, and I'm just focused on that: what I need to get better at. I see a lot of things that I can get better at. There's a lot in the run game and the pass game. Just like anything else, I think I can improve a lot in the pass game, with my feet and hands. Just being better overall." "(The center) has got a tough job because he's got to get the ball to the quarterback ... then also block. I've always thought he had the toughest job out there on the field, and there are certain blocks in our offense that aren't easy to execute," Kirk Ferentz said. "So if you get a guy that has got that ability, it's a really good thing. At the end of the day, centers are the MVPs. Quarterbacks think they are big shots, but if they don't get the ball, they are going nowhere." - The Gazette
