Prospect Profile: Matthew Thomas

Matthew Thomas School: South Carolina
Ht: 6-1 Wt: 185 40: 4.55 Year: 4Sr

Bio: Moved in and out of the starting lineup since his freshman campaign. Posted12/192/1 as a senior after career numbers of 24/442/2 the prior year.

Positives: Consistent receiver with reliable hands and a burst of speed. Extends in a crowd, displays good eye/hand coordination and pulls the ball out of the air. Makes the reception in stride, effectively using his frame to shield away opponents.

Negatives: Works his routes, yet not very sharp or quick. Must give better effort blocking.

Analysis: A player that flashes ability, yet shows little consistency, Thomas offers adequate size/speed numbers as a fifth receiver at the next level. Had minimal success early in his career returning kicks, which is the only way he'll make a roster.
