Summary: A power player through-and-through, Tomlinson is at his best when he's matched up against fellow power players and is asked to generate a push in the run game. It is notable, though, that he didn't allow a sack in his final two seasons at Duke, and his NFL.com scouting profile credits him for being adept at picking up stunts and twists as a pass blocker.
Stacking up: Charles Davis, Bucky Brooks and Mike Mayock all have Tomlinson as the No. 3 interior offensive lineman in their rankings, with Brooks saying Tomlinson "has been a steady riser up the charts after impressing scouts with his play at the Senior Bowl."
Quick study:Tomlinson, who was born in Kingston, Jamaica and moved to Chicago in eighth grade, didn't start playing football until his freshman season at Lane Technical High School.
