BIO: Two-year starter who finished with 86 tackles as a senior after 91 the prior season.
POSITIVES: Hard-working, productive linebacker with a good head for the game. Diagnoses the action and takes good angles to ball carriers. Displays a burst of speed, quickly changes direction and is effective in zone coverage. Stays with assignments and keeps the action in front of him.
NEGATIVES: Slow shedding blocks and can be smothered by opponents. Not quick moving laterally. Lacks ideal size/speed numbers.
ANALYSIS: A productive collegiate defender with an all-around game, Thomas offers possibilities as a backup on the inside of a 34 defense.
