Southern Mississippi's top draft prospect is wide receiver Mike Thomas. The 6'1" wide receiver is viewed as a day three prospect in the draft.On Thursday, Thomas ran a 4.53 40-yard dash on his second attempt after running a 4.4 40-yard dash on his first attempt.
In addition to his fast 40 times, Thomas also displayed a vertical of 36 inches.
Buffalo's scout in attendance was apparently very impressed with Thomas.
The Bills are holding an open competition behind Sammy Watkins and Robert Woods. A player like Thomas, projected as a sixth round pick, could come in and compete against the likes of Greg Salas, Marquise Goodwin, Jarrett Boykin, Greg Little, Dezmin Lewis, and others for a roster spot.
In addition to Thomas, cornerback Kalan Reed could be targeted late in the draft. If he goes undrafted, Reed would be a high priority UDFA. On Thursday, he ran a 4.38 40-yard dash.
