Four-year starter at center who earned First Team All-Conference USA honors in both 2015 and 2016. Named Honorable Mention All-Conference USA as a sophomore. Made nine starts as a true freshman in 2013 and was named to the Conference USA All-Freshman Team.
Tough, smart college center with athletic limitations for the next level. Displays outstanding vision, works well with linemates and keeps his head on a swivel. Keeps his feet and hands active throughout the action, shows quickness out to the second level and nicely redirects or adjusts to linebackers. Stays square, gets his hands into defenders and is a solid position blocker who seals opponents from the action. Effective with the shotgun snap. Blocks with excellent knee bend and gets leverage on opponents.
Lacks strength on the inside and struggles handling one-on-one blocking assignments. Occasionally gets pushed back into the pocket and rarely finishes blocks.
Tom is a hard-working college lineman who gets the most from his ability yet is a prospect with limited next-level potential.
