 Pat Thomas Grade: 3.2
 Position: OLB
 Class: Sr
 School: NC State
 Conference: ACC
 Ht., Wt.: 6-1, 232
 40 Time: 4.85
  Selected by: Jacksonville Jaguars
  Round 6, pick 20 (194 overall)

BIO: Three-year starter who finished second on the team in tackles as a senior with 67/13.5/4.5 after numbers of 130/15/8 the prior year when he was an All-Conference selection.

POSITIVES: Hard-hitting linebacker with marginal size/speed numbers. Instinctive, anticipates the action and immediately picks up pass cover assignments. Breaks down well, tough to knock off his feet and gets through the traffic to make a play on the ball. Effective in the box and wraps up tackling. Quickly fills in run defense. Gets adequate depth on pass drops.

NEGATIVES: Only average playing speed and cannot cut off the corners from running backs. Struggles in coverage and possesses marginal ball skills.

ANALYSIS: An intense competitor with terrific football intelligence, Thomas is a marginal athlete best suited on the inside in a 34 defense.

PROJECTION: Undrafted Free Agent
