Chase Thomas

School: Stanford
Position: OLB
Bio: Four-year starter awarded all-Conference honors the past two seasons. Senior totals included 68 tackles/14 tackles for loss/7.5 sacks as well as one interception. Junior totals included 52/17.5/8.5 after 70/11.5/7.5 as a sophomore.
Positive: Ultra-productive college defender who does not project well to the next level. Plays with a relentless attitude, aggressively goes after the action, and works hard to make plays. Breaks down well. Shows a variety of hand moves working to protect himself and wraps up when tackling. Shows a good head for the ball. Moves relatively well laterally and is very effective rushing the passer.
Negative: Slow dropping off the line of scrimmage and is stiff in pass coverage. Possesses marginal speed pursuing the play. Shows average playing strength and gets handled by tight ends. Despite his production, he disappears for stretches.
Analysis: Thomas was all-everything for Stanford but has size and athletic limitations. He lacks the speed to be an outside linebacker in a 3-4 alignment and is not big enough to come out of a three-point stance in a conventional four-man front. Thomas should be a productive role player for the NFL team that uses him as a situational pass rusher.
