5-11, 196

4.65

BIOGRAPHY: Former receiver who made the full-time switch the cornerback as a sophomore and started the next three years. Senior totals included 14/3/2 after 17 tackles as a junior.

POSITIVES: Thomas is an adequately sized defensive back who could be used in a zone system.

NEGATIVES: Does not possess top-end speed. Marginally instinctive and bites on receiver fakes. Lacks the smooth backpedal, and has difficulty staying with opponents out from their routes.

ANALYSIS: Smooth defensive back best facing the action. Fluid turning to run with opponents, displays a quick break to the ball from his plant, and fights to defend the throw. Shows good hands for the interception, and constantly makes plays on the ball.

PROJECTION: FA
