But it looks like he might be declaring.
I think this kid is going to be a great NFL player, maybe more successful than Calvin Johnson (more successful- not better. CJ got screwed by being on the Lions).
He's got the tools. His ideal situation would be going to a team that has an aging #1 (Indy, NE, etc.) to be groomed for a couple of years. He has the size, athleticism, hands (despite the crucial drop against Georgia), and blocking ability, but I assume he could use some polish on the route running (disclaimer: I don't know that as fact, but assume it given the nature of the offense he plays in).
You nailed it. It is hard to scout him because GT only throws the ball 10 times again, but I saw him running mostly fly routes. He is going to impress at the combine and his pro day. 2nd, maybe 3rd rounder.
Thomas needs serious serious serious improvement on his route running skills if he is going to be a player at the next level. Physical tools are all there. He is a beast. But you cannot just out-athlete people in the NFL.
would be the best year for him..bryant is the only real competition & he's not all that great to me so...
Morgan Burnett, S, Jonathan Dwyer, RB, and Derrick Morgan, DE, join BeBe Thomas in entering the 2010 NFL draft.
Hell of a junior showing for GTech in the draft.
