Position:DE Class: Sr School:
Big East Ht., Wt.: 6'6, 282 40 Time: 4.85 Grade: 2.83
BIO: Three-year starter who totaled 40/8.5/3 as a senior after 33/6.5/3 the prior season.
POSITIVES: Tall, thin lineman that plays with great hustle. Quick in his head, immediately locates the ball and displays a nice inside move getting around blocks. Works to stay low and plays hard until the whistle blows.
NEGATIVES: Not big or bulky, handled at the point by a single blocker or easily ridden from his angle of attack. Lacks the great first step off the snap as well as a closing burst.
ANALYSIS: A competitive defender, Thomas just does not possess the explosion to be a top prospect. Has the size to add bulk to his frame and could eventually be kicked inside to tackle.
