He played LT at Illinois, I wonder if he could play RT? He appears to have the athletic ability to do so. Thorton is a real tough guy, something the Texans OL is currently missing.
IDK...he struggled with pass protection his whole career and had some problems at the Senior Bowl. Not to mention he's 6'3, with 33 inch arms.
He's a great run blocker so that just screams OG to me. Could be a good player though. Yet another mid-to-late guy that has some starting potential.
