BIOGRAPHY: Junior-college transfer coming off a breakout season. Led the team in receiving last year with 79/1260/8 and was awarded All-Conference honors. Had six receptions as a sophomore.

POSITIVES: Large, athletic prospect coming off a breakout junior campaign. Solid pass-catcher who uses his frame to shield away opponents and extends to make the reception away from his body. Sells routes, adjusts to the errant throw, and displays a nice sense of timing. Possesses good eye/hand coordination and makes the tough catch in contorted positions. Knows where he is on the field, finds the soft spot in the defense, and resilient running after the reception. Keeps the play alive and tries to pick up as much yardage as possible. Gets vertical out-jumping defenders and pulls the ball from the air.

NEGATIVES: Displays marginal sharpness running routes. Lacks the second gear and really does not play to his timed speed.

ANALYSIS: Thomas is a terrific athlete and a sure-handed receiver who also makes the big play downfield. He really hit his stride last year. He possesses a good amount of upside potential and his draft stock is moving north. Thomas must learn to do the little things well, but he should develop into a number one receiver at the next level.
