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.

PROJECTION: Undrafted Free Agent
