CB Kevin Thomas Scouting Report

CB Kevin Thomas, Southern Cal.
Pos. Rank: 7 Grade: 2nd-3rd Round Height: 6-0 Weight: 192 40: 4.44 Year: 5-Sr.

The Good: Nice-sized cornerback best facing the action. Stays low in his backpedal, quick flipping his hips and has a burst out of his plant. Displays better than average ball awareness, plays heads-up football, and fights hard to defend the throw.

The Bad: Seems to struggle in zone and does not show great route recognition. Slow locating the ball with his back to the action.

The Verdict: After being used primarily as a backup prior to the 2009 season, Thomas showed flashes of ability last year. He possesses the size and the underlying skill to play at the next level as a nickel or dime back, yet he is an unfinished product and will need time to develop his game.
