    Scouting Report

    I can't help but be intrigued by this guy.

    He seems to have such good physical tools, is book smart (graduated already in a real qualification), and only started QBing in college after being recruited as a TE.

    I am pro-Bridgewater in the first (or Manziel or Bortles if push came to shove) but I would not be opposed to coming back to Thomas if he was there in the 5th.

    Thoughts?

    If a guy is inexperienced and catching up, then I want a high IQ as well. Otherwise, he'll be gone before he's of any use. He looks like he's worth taking a flyer on in the late rounds.

    I would draft him in the 5th and move him to te. As a qb prospect, he's looks good until he actually plays. If he runs a 4.5 40, and performs well in 3 cone and shuttle, I'm moving him to te.

    General consensus is he looks awful at Senior Bowl practices so far but will still be overdrafted. Accuracy is on par with this guy's...

    Looks like Tarzan, plays like Jane. Dude has been pretty mediocre his entire career. Couldnt even put up points against a horrid Michigan defense in the Sugar bowl a few years back.

    Kinda reminds me of Josh Freeman out of K-State. I was shocked when he went 17 overall. Measureables were great, but didnt produce in the Big12.

    Like you said, Thomas will probably be overdrafted due to his measureables, but he is not worth more than a project 4th round.

    Maybe he'll be willing to play TE.

    Wouldn't touch him. He held VT back during his time there IMO.

    Other than size he has nothing. Probably won't even get drafted.

    ill take a flyer on him as an UDFA and thats all. no way do i give up a 5th for him. you can still find quality back ups late in the draft that we sorely need

    I have him graded as a 6th rounder and at that I would still only take him if I had an established starter and backup and had time to work with Thomas for a few years before anything other than QB #3 was expected of him.

    I would actually have him graded higher as a TE than I do as a QB, just like Colin Klein last year.

    So true.

    Though, I don't view that as a bad thing (born and raised UVa fan).

    I have no problems with taking Thomas in the fifth round. He's a project that has the size and arm strength for the NFL. If you let him sit a few years behind a Bridgewater/Bortles you could find yourself with a capable backup. A lot of his negatives seem to just be his lack of experience at the position.

    Speaking of Colin Klein, I knew he was here in training camp awhile but whatever happened to him?

    He never signed with Texans nor any team.

    If he proved he could catch I would use a late draft pick on him as a TE.

    kid never amounted to much. looks the part, but the few times ive seen him play, doesnt look good at all as a qb.

    Is he open to being a TE?

    If not he's an idiot. It may be his only chance in the nfl.

    Didn't make it through camp. Just doesn't have a NFL arm. Like Arlington said, nobody else ever signed him.

    I had read somewhere (can't find it now) that some teams were interested in him as a TE but he only wants to play QB. He was actually invited to the combine as a TE but refused to do anything other than QB drills.

    I understand having confidence in yourself but that kind of attitude bugs me. He'd rather be on the street as a "QB" than in a uniform at another position. MarQueis Gray actually did the same thing and also went undrafted but after he was picked up by SF he agreed to play wherever they asked him. They cut him but the Browns picked him up and played him at numerous positions this year.
