J.T. Thomas
Round 6, Pick 195
Position: OLB
Class:  5Sr
School: West Virginia
Conference: Big East
HT: 6-1
WT: 241
40 Time: 4.65
Biography: Three-year starter awarded all-Conference honors the past two seasons. Senior totals included 73/7/2.5 after 76 tackles as a junior.

Positives: "Undersized, one-gap linebacker best in pursuit. Fluid changing direction, can chase down the action from the back side, and has terrific sideline-to-sideline range. Covers a lot of area on the field, displays a burst to the play, and easily redirects to ball carriers."

Negatives: Marginally instinctive and bites on play-action passes. Lacks bulk and gets swallowed up by blocks.

Analysis: Thomas has been a productive linebacker on the college level since his sophomore season. He projects as a backup weak side linebacker and special teams player for the next level.

Projection: FA
