Bio: 
Two-year starter who led Louisiana-Lafayette in pass breakups in each of those seasons. Made 42 tackles (three for loss) with 12 pass breakups in 2017 despite missing two games due to issues with academic eligibility, which also cost him nine games in 2015, the entire 2014 season and three games of the 2013 season. Recorded 40 tackles, two interceptions, one forced fumble and five PBUs in 2016.
Pos: 
Nice-sized defensive back who has lined up at both corner and safety. Quickly picks up coverage assignments, plays heads-up football and nicely locates the pass in the air. Feisty, physical and works hard to break up throws. Plays to his size, shows closing burst and mixes it up with opponents throughout the action.
Neg: 
Inefficient and takes himself from the action. Does not consistently play under control and guesses wrong.
Analysis: 
Thomas offers size and growth potential and could be an outstanding dime back in a zone system and a solid special-teams player.
