Overview:

Thomas has great size, I think he can be a 4-3 defensive tackle, or a 3-4 defensive end. He gets good pressure on the quarterback, and has good speed. He is also a good pass rusher. On the other hand, he has issues with speedy backs, and he not known as a sack specialist. With that said, I expect Thomas to be a day 3 pick.
