Kevin Thomas
Round 3, Pick 94
Position: CB
Class: 5Sr
School: USC
Conference: Pacific-10
HT: 6-0
WT: 192
40 Time: 4.44
Biography: Posted career numbers of 57 tackles as a senior when he also broke up 11 passes. Junior totals included 15 tackles and three interceptions. Sat on the sidelines in 2007 with a shoulder injury and missed most of the ?06 campaign with a broken foot.

Positives: Nice-sized cornerback best facing the action. Stays low in his backpedal, quick flipping his hips and has a burst out of his plant. Displays better than average ball awareness, plays heads-up football, and fights hard to defend the throw.

Negatives: Seems to struggle in zone and does not show great route recognition. Slow locating the ball with his back to the action.

Analysis: After being used primarily as a backup prior to the 2009 season, Thomas showed flashes of ability last year. He possesses the size and the underlying skill to play at the next level as a nickel or dime back, yet he is an unfinished product and will need time to develop his game.

Projection: 2-3
