ON THE TAPE
Thomas impressed me in Chicago during testing with his quickness and speed. I knew he was a burner, but on this video, what stood out was his ability to find daylight and accelerate through the holes. In the Wing-T, backs are taught to not waste a lot of time and get upfield and he did that. But when he was forced outside, Thomas could really turn on the jets and beat defenders to the corner. He also showed pretty good change of direction ability and broke a few arm tackles. He isn't the biggest guy, but his compact build allows him to be a fairly tough back to bring down. But don't take my word for it...see it for yourself.
