Alabama DT, Tomlinson calls himself a dominate run stopper and he credits that to his wrestling talent which crowned him as a three-time state heavyweight champion."Wrestling is a big sport of leverage; you have to learn how to control the person across from you," said Dalvin. "Playing interior defensive linemen you face a lot of double-teams and big people leaning on you and pushing you in different ways and I felt like that helped me become better defensive linemen because I had a wrestling background."

 

He is projected to be drafted in the 3rd or 4th round but don't be surprised if he's picked in the late 1st or early 2nd round.
