Overview:

Thomas was a tackling machine for Stanford, with 101 tackles, including 25.5 for loss, and 11.5 sacks. He has good size, he gets great pressure on the quarterback, he is a great pass rusher, he is also a dynamic pass rusher, he also has good speed. He is also a defensive play maker, a tough nosed player, and is a sure fire tackler. He has only played 2 seasons at Stanford as he redshirted his freshman year. But I expect Thomas to be a high riser, and end up being a top 10 pick when it is all said and done, as I believe he can play as a Defensive End in a 3-4 scheme, and a Defensive Tackle in a 4-3 system.
