BIOGRAPHY: Three-year starter who began his college career at defensive end. All-Conference selection every season since his sophomore campaign.
POSITIVES: Tremendous pass-blocking left tackle who does a terrific job protecting the blind side. Patient, makes exceptional use of angles and body positioning. Bends his knees, gets leverage on opponents and displays quickness in all aspects of his game.
NEGATIVES: Average skills blocking in motion. Not a finisher and must improve his run-blocking strength.
ANALYSIS: After a slow start to his senior campaign when he was rebounding from knee surgery performed, Thomas looked in fine form at the end of the year. One of the best pass protectors to come around in a long time and has the growth potential to improve as a run-blocker.
