Biography: Three-year starter who finished his senior season with 58/1/8. Junior totals included 45 tackles with nine pass breakups.
Positives: "Athletic cornerback with NFL physical skills. Engages receivers at the line, fluid flipping his hips in transition, and runs with opponents downfield. Smooth and fluid pedaling in reverse and displays a quick break to the throw. Plays an aggressive style of football, always willing to throw a pad into the pile, and quick moving up the field in run defense."
Negatives: Loses out in battles. Late reacting to the action and does not consistently play with a sense of awareness on the field.
Analysis: Thomas is an aggressive cornerback who has opposing quarterbacks avoiding him. He must continue to improve his game but has the underlying skills to be a solid nickel back in either man or zone coverage in the NFL.
