Michael Thomas

School: Ohio State
Position: WR
Positive: Two-year starter awarded all-Conference and All-America honors since his junior season. Junior totals included a career-best 56 receptions as well as 781 yards and 9 TDs. Large, game controlling receiver with solid downfield speed. Smooth and fluid in all his actions, displays natural receiving skills and athletic. Solid route runner, stays low exiting breaks and uses his frame to shield away defenders. Separates from opponents, nicely adjusts to the errant throw and extends to make the reception away from his frame. Tracks the ball in the air, keeps his focus and makes the difficult reception in a crowd. Effectively uses the sidelines, makes the catch downfield at full speed and strong running after the reception. Gives effort blocking downfield and gets results.
Negative: Not a true downfield threat or receiver that wins out in foot races. Average overall quickness. Must physically beat down opponents to separate from them.
Analysis: Thomas was a consistent pass catcher for Ohio State the past two seasons and is a big bodied receiver prospect with outstanding potential. Though a bit rough around the edges, he has the potential to develop into a number one wide out at the next level.

Michael Thomas

School: Southern Mississippi
Position: WR
Positive: Junior-college transfer who posted a career-best 71 receptions, 1391 yards and 14 TDs last season. Experienced return specialist. Average sized possession receiver with reliable hands. Plays with balance, body control and consistently comes away with the reception in contorted positions. Exposes himself to the big hit, takes a pounding but holds onto the throw. Displays good awareness, comes back to the ball and uses his frame to shield away defenders. Smooth and agile, quickly releases off the line scrimmage then comes across the middle of the field and finds the clearing. Sells routes, works his hands to separate from defenders and displays the ability to pull the fastball from the air.
Negative: One speed wide out and lacks the 2nd gear. Does not always catch the ball cleanly.
Analysis: Thomas was a productive receiver the two seasons he played at Southern Mississippi and could make an NFL roster as a 5th wide out/special teams player.
