Detroit Lions trade former first-round pick Laken Tomlinson, report says

A week before the start of the regular season, the 49ers are still wheeling and dealing. 49ers were extremely weak at the guard a year ago, and it has been a position of issue during training camp.

Detroit Lions offensive guard Laken Tomlinson (72) plays against the Indianapolis Colts during the second half of an NFL preseason football game Sunday, Aug. 13, 2017, in Indianapolis. He's started 24 games in his first two National Football League seasons, showing himself to be a pedestrian starting offensive lineman during that span.

Tomlinson is the second first-round pick from his draft class that was traded this weekend. It's the one position that wasn't settled along San Francisco's offensive line.

The 49ers are reportedly giving up a fifth-round pick in the 2019 draft in exchange for Tomlinson, the 28th overall player selected in 2015. Right guard Joshua Garnett is now out with a knee injury, leaving veterans Brandon Fusco and Zane Beadles in the mix for playing time at guard.

Tomlinson was made expendable when Detroit signed former Green Bay Packers guard T.J. Lang during the offseason.
