Too straight up when going into breaks; doesn't sell
Struggles to separate
Below average speed
Lacks deep speed
Unimpressive vision after catch
Summary: I just don't see a natural receiver whatsoever when I put on tape of Thomas, who is considering declaring for the 2010 NFL Draft as a junior after his big season. He lacks speed and there is simply too much development needed to warrant a high second-round pick. Don't buy the hype. Thomas is a projected third-to-fourth-round pick.
Player Comparison: Michael Clayton. Clayton occasionally loses focus and lacks the speed to be a playmaker in the NFL; both set the tone as run blockers.
