Draft Scout Laken Tomlinson News
09/18/17 - LG Laken Tomlinson made his first 49ers start in Sunday's loss at Seattle. The import from the Detroit Lions played 48 of the team's 49 offensive snaps and helped improve the interior of the San Francisco line, where the club had had problems the week before.
09/14/17 - G Laken Tomlinson likely will make his 49ers debut Sunday against the Seattle Seahawks. 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan said this week that Tomlinson, acquired on the eve of the regular season from the Detroit Lions, has progressed in his grasp of the club's offensive scheme to the point where he is much more likely to play this week than he was when he saw no action in the opener against Carolina. Tomlinson has been working out at both guard positions. The left guard spot, currently held by LG Zane Beadles, is considered to be the most vulnerable.
09/06/17 - LG Laken Tomlinson was a full participant at 49ers practice Wednesday, lining up with the second string on team drills.
It was the first indication that the former Detroit Lion, acquired last week, will be competing against LG Zane Beadles for a starting spot. 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan noted Wednesday that expecting Tomlinson to be up to speed with the 49ers' schemes by Sunday's season opener is a bit of a stretch.
09/01/17 - G Laken Tomlinson was acquired from the Detroit Lions on Thursday for a fifth-round draft pick. The 2015 first-round pick had started 24 games for the Lions the past two seasons. Tomlinson is considered a possibility to begin the season as the starting left guard in injured LG Josh Garnett's place.
08/31/17 - OG Laken Tomlinson was traded by the Lions to the 49ers for a 2019 fifth-round draft pick Thursday. Tomlinson must pass a physical in order for the trade to be finalized, per a 49ers' press release. Tomlinson, 25, has played in every game for the Lions since it selected him with the 28th overall pick of the 2015 draft. He eventually lost his starting job to then-rookie Graham Glasgow in 2016.
