"On the Hoof: Thomas has wide shoulders with a very lean, muscular frame. His build is similar to Florida State running back Chris Thompson, but Thomas is a tad taller.
Needs Improvement: Must add 15 to 20 pounds of muscle mass in order to carry the ball more than 15 times a game. If he is to end up at corner he will need more time working at that position.
Most Impressive: Thomas has excellent hands out of the backfield, and could actually be a slot receiver if he chose to. His speed gives him a chance to score any time he touches the football. He is a versatile athlete that could return punts and kicks or play either side of the ball.
Conclusion: Should play early in his career because he is dangerous in space and is the ultimate homerun threat. Even if he ends up on the defensive side of the ball, which will take longer for him to crack the lineup, he will get chances to touch the ball either on special teams or designed plays.
