PLAYERS
Matt Tomlinson
Position: T
Class:  Sr
School: North Texas
HT: 6'5"
WT: 300 lbs.
40 Time: 5.44
Conference: Sun Belt
Biography: Three-year starter experienced at right tackle, left tackle and guard.

Positives: Strong small-area blocker who is best in confined quarters. Sets with a wide base, stays square and works to keep defenders in front of him. Anchors in pass protection, keeps his feet moving and is explosive at the point of attack.

Negatives: Lacks footwork and lateral range. Displays stiffness in his game and struggles to adjust. Ineffective blocking in motion.

Analysis: Tomlinson is a big prospect who gets the most from his ability, yet a limited athlete with marginal upside. He offers potential as an inexpensive backup on the strong side but needs to increase his bulk and improve his playing strength.

Projection: FA
