Pos: 
Small, swift ball carrier who creates his own yardage. Displays the speed and quickness necessary to turn the corner, quickly cuts back against the grain and loses little momentum when he changes direction. Runs with balance and body control and keeps his feet moving. Eludes defenders and makes opponents miss. Patiently waits for blocks to develop, will pick and choose his spots on the inside and shows a burst of speed that he turns on in a single step. Short and gets lost behind linemen.
Neg: 
Indecisive as a ball carrier. Easily knocked off balance by the initial hit or brought to the turf by a single defender. Struggles to break arm tackles. Marginally productive as a receiver out of the backfield.
Analysis: 
Thomas projects as a situational ball carrier and third-down back and comes with return skills, but he must improve his pass-catching production to have any chance to make a roster.
