Draft Scout Laken Tomlinson News
10/24/16 - OL Laken Tomlinson is out at left guard, and Graham Glasgow is in as the Lions' new starter at the position.
Lions coach Jim Caldwell said Tomlinson would remain his starting left guard after Tomlinson was twice benched in a Week 6 win over the Philadelphia Eagles. But after Glasgow, the team's center of the future, held his own in a Week 7 matchup against Aaron Donald, when Tomlinson played right guard in place of the injured Larry Warford, the Lions decided to stick with the rookie.
10/17/16 - OL Laken Tomlinson, who was benched for part of the Week 5 win over the Philadelphia Eagles because of his recent struggles, was back in the starting lineup Sunday at a new position -- right guard. Tomlinson, who started 14 games at left guard as a rookie and five more at the position this year, played right guard in college. He had one of his better games of the season Sunday.
The change isn't permanent, as regular starting right guard Larry Warford could return from his hip injury this week. But Tomlinson looked more comfortable at the position despite being told he was moving positions just hours before the game.
10/13/16 - LG Laken Tomlinson missed practice Wednesday with a neck injury. Tomlinson was benched for parts of last week's game against the Eagles. Rookie Graham Glasgow took first-team guard reps in Tomlinson's absence and will start Sunday if Tomlinson can't play.
08/18/15 - G Laken Tomlinson received all of the first-team reps at left guard Tuesday.
06/11/15 - G Laken Tomlinson, selected by the Lions in the first round of the draft (28th overall), signed a four-year contract Thursday (June 11).
Tomlinson is expected to start at left guard in 2015 but has worked out mostly behind veteran Manny Ramirez. Ramirez was acquired from the Denver Broncos in the draft-day trade that allowed Denver to move up for pass rusher Shane Ray.
