Duke redshirt senior OG Laken Tomlinson has "enough ability to make the two-deep at the next level," writes TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline.
"It's great to see Duke play winning football and we should start to see some of their players being selected in the draft," Pauline wrote. "Laken Tomlinson is a stout, well built guard who sinks his hips on the line and blocks with leverage. He’s not overly effective blocking in motion but has enough ability to make the two-deep at the next level." Tomlinson earned second-team All-ACC honors as a junior and is a three-time All-ACC Academic selection. Pauline grades the fifth-year senior as a sixth-round prospect. Aug 17 - 2:07 PM

Duke senior OG Laken Tomlinson "enters his senior year as one of the top guard prospects in the 2015 draft class," according to CBS Sports' Derek Stephens, and will "draw first round grades" if he can stay healthy.

Tomlinson earned second-team All-ACC selection as a junior and is a three-time All-ACC Academic selection as well. "Tomlinson possesses the ideal thick, powerful build for an NFL guard and demonstrates impressive movement skills for his size with nimble feet, flexible hips and smoothness when asked to change direction both as a run blocker and in pass protection," wrote Stephens. "His natural strength is obvious, as he's able to routinely dictate and finish opponents when he latches on, and he does a good job of holding ground when anchoring, even when asked to reset after being caught off guard or initially knocked back." According to the analyst, Tomlinson must improve his hand use, play with better lower-half width in pass protection, and stay lower off the snap, but these flaws "aren't nearly as evident as they once were."
