2017 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about DALVIN TOMLINSON: Alabama, 6030 312 5.18. One-year starter but a regular in the defensive front rotation for two years. From McDonough, GA. In an accolade-showered defense he did his job with no parades and is stronger than Death Wish Coffee. As tough as a nickel steak. Will stand a blocker up and work his way down the line. A dependable and reliable talent who is body aware and balanced. Technique conscious. Quick to diagnose the play after controlling his opponent. Feels pressure and reacts on the move. Right place-right time player. Has the ability to explode by unlocking his hips with force. Power base and lower strength with knee bend and leverage to stack the point. Stout inline play strength. Quick up the field get off. Can rag doll an offensive guard. Pushes the pocket and eats up two blocks. Hard to move off his mark. Did not play in a true rotation where he will on Sundays. Plays hard every down and is many times the last man standing. Controls his blocker with long arms and big hands. Pushes the pocket and gets his hands up in the throwing lane. His experience as a two-gap player will enhance his Sunday stock. Tore one ACL in 2011 and the other in 2013. Tomlinson is not your average kid off the field. He’s been through more adversity than most, losing both parents before he turned 18. He is very accomplished in the classroom and actually had an opportunity to go to Harvard, but chose Alabama instead. The former three-time state champion wrestler has the ideal size and power to play inside in any scheme. While he may be limited, his ability to control inside gaps will be there right away. Senior Bowl notes: Strong at the point of attack. Excellent use of hands to get into the blocker and shed. Quick to play off a block and to locate the ball. Plays at a low pad level. Good lateral quickness. Gets push in the pass game. Does all the dirty work from tackle-to-tackle. 2016 stats: 62 T, 5.5 TFL, 3 sacks, 4 PBU, 7 QBH, 1 FF. Edge speed:left 2.01, right 2.00. OSR:9/16. Second/third round. (A-33, H-10, BP-DNP, 10-1.81).
