Ourlads' Profile:

2015 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about LAKEN TOMLINSON: Duke, 6033 323 5.33. Four-year starter from Chicago, IL. Over 50 career starts after beginning his football career in high school. Grew up in Jamaica and moved to Chicago, getting a later than usual start to his football career. Has the physical makeup and talent to be a dominant player but is still raw around the edges. Tomlinson will look like a top tier prospect on some plays but then show a lack of skills on others. High upside prospect here. Experienced and productive interior blocker with plenty of power and strength. Ideal frame for the position. Wide body with thick legs, long arms. Easy bender at the knees with light, but powerful feet. Excels as a run blocker, getting a strong pop out of his stance and can win the initial battle after the snap. Good body control and balance when he keeps his chest upright. Can anchor his position against the strongest of bull rushers. Uses his weight well. Good arm length and big hands. Gets top heavy at times and will dip his head. Won’t lock onto defenders, leaving him very susceptible to double moves. Doesn’t maintain an inside hand position. Late to pick up blitzes and stunts to his outside shoulder. Doesn’t recover well after being initially beat. Technique needs a lot of work. OSR:26/41. Third/ fourth round. (A-33 5/8, H-10 1/4, BP-25, 10-1.86).
