Biography: "Part-time starter the past two seasons. Played in five games as a senior before suffering a season-ending knee injury, finishing the year with 27/106 on the ground. Junior totals included 560 yards with 4 TDs."
Positives: "Strong ball carrier with vision and instincts between the tackles. Reads defenses, finds the running lanes, and follows blocks everywhere on the field. Has a burst and deceptive speed, playing faster than his 40 time. Flashes ability on the outside or cutting back in a small area and avoiding piles. Strong carrying the ball, breaks tackles, and picks up yardage off initial contact."
Negatives: Not an elusive runner who can create yardage. Cannot turn the corner or beat defenders around the edges.
Analysis: Thermilus is a serviceable interior running back who could make it as a third back on an NFL roster if he is able to return from the knee injury that sidelined him most of last season.
