Bio: 
Three-year starter named Honorable Mention All-AAC in 2017 after leading Navy with 81 tackles (four for loss) and intercepting three passes. Finished fourth in the conference with 107 tackles as a junior to earn Second Team All-AAC honors. Ranked second on the team with 73 tackles in 2015 and added 4.5 tackles for loss and 2.5 sacks.
Pos: 
Tough, nasty run defender who gets the most from his ability. Competitive, breaks through double-team blocks and plays through the whistle. Displays a tremendous head for the action, quickly locates the ball and takes good angles to the play. Efficient, breaks down well and works hard.
Neg: 
Displays average playing speed and a limited closing burst. Ineffective in backside pursuit. Gets out-positioned from the action.
Analysis: 
Thomas is a hard-working linebacker who gets the most from his ability but is a two-down defender with limited upside.
