Now that the Lions are set to move on without stalwart center Dominic Raiola, expect Travis Swanson to take over at center in his second year. There will be discussions about veteran guard Rob Sims moving on as well, which might mean the Lions are in the market for another young guard to develop for the middle of the line.
They had success nabbing Larry Warford, and Tomlinson could be another player in his vain. He possesses a massive body and has great strength and durability considering his 2,981 career snaps.
With that consistency in mind, Tomlinson is the type of player Detroit could plug in next to Warford seamlessly for the next decade. Tomlinson even looks a bit like Warford coming out of school.
