Scouting Report
Thomas is a clear-cut case of a player who will be drafted on potential and raw talent rather than what he's accomplished. He was a three-year starter at Virginia Tech but posted a 26-14 record, had a dismal 55.6 completion percentage and never finished among the ACC's top-five rated passers. Conversely, and part of why NFL teams are curious about what his future could bring, Thomas led all quarterbacks at the scouting combine in the 40-yard dash as well as the vertical and broad jumps. Plus, he was the only one who surpassed 60 mph in ball speed, showing that he may have the biggest arm in what is considered a very deep quarterback class. Sometimes that velocity allowed him to zip passes into spaces where few college players could, but often he'd miss on easier short throws and make bad decisions because he's not adept at reading the field. Then again, in some ways he's still learning the position after leaving high school as one of the nation's top tight end prospects. His lack of accuracy and carelessness with the ball - 39 interceptions and 23 fumbles for the Hokies - were frustrating, but his physical tools are tantalizing and the former team captain has good intangibles. His arm strength, imposing frame and scrambling ability amount to the ideal look of a current-day NFL quarterback, but he must get better at throwing on the run and making the routine throws. Additionally, some scouts are concerned Thomas was often at his worst against the best, including a 5-for-26 passing day against Alabama to open 2013. It all adds up to some experts thinking he's a worthwhile project who could go as high as the third round, while others believe he could drop to the sixth.
