Dalvin Tomlinson   #94 DE

Height: 6-3   Weight: 318   Age: 25

Born: 2/28/1994 McDonough , GA

College: Alabama

Experience: 3rd season

High School: Henry County HS [McDonough, GA]









Draft 2017

Pick No.55

Selected By: New York Giants

Round: 2

Pick (Overall): 23 (55)

Pick Analysis: Tomlinson is no typical SEC defensive lineman. He could have gone to Harvard based on his academic abilities, but chose Alabama as a four-star recruit because of their success on the gridiron. Both of his parents have passed away, and is motivated by the words and action of his mother on a daily basis. Tomlinson was a three-time heavyweight wrestling champion in high school, and was a goalie on the soccer team. He tore his ACL playing soccer in his senior year, though, and had to redshirt his first year in Tuscaloosa. Finally on the field in 2013, he tore his other ACL in his only game (four tackles). Tomlinson played end in 14 games as a reserve in 2014 (22 tackles, 5.5 for loss, two sacks) and as the top back-up for the 2015 national champions (34 tackles, six pass breakups). He had his best season statistically for the Tide as a senior (62 stops, 5.5 TFL, three sacks, four PBU) as Nick Saban used him inside and outside on the team's multiple-look defense.
