Overview:

Tomlinson had a great career at Alabama, posting 122 tackles, 10,.5 for loss, and 4.0 sacks. He has great size, he is a good pass rusher, despite the lack of sacks, he does a good job of getting pressure on the quarterback, and is a solid tackler. He also commands double teams, and is a good run stopper/stuffer. He is a solid tackler, and is versatile, as he can line up at defensive tackle, and defensive end. However, he is on the slow side but that does not hamper his game. I expect Tomlinson to be a day 2 pick, going somewhere in the 2nd round when it is all said and done.
