Earl Thomas Scouting Report
Position: SS
School & Year/Status: Texas - Sophomore
Jersey Number: #12
Height & Weight: 5'10 - 197 lbs.
Ranked #47 on our Top 100 Prospects Board

Few players have come as far as Earl Thomas in such a short amount of time. The 5-10 strong safety was not that highly touted coming out of high school and redshirted his first year at Texas. As a redshirt freshman in 2008, Thomas totaled 72 tackles, two interceptions and broke up 17 passes. He was even an integral part of the special teams unit. Thomas is just a sophomore in 2009, but he will be eligible for the draft since he will be three years out of high school.

He might leave early if he keeps performing like he has so far in 2009. Through six games, Thomas is second on the team with 27 tackles and has amassed an incredible five interceptions (and he even forced a fumble).

Thomas' 5-10, 197 pound frame is not ideal for the NFL, but he is not a weak player. He has good coverage skills and a ton of speed, so he could be converted into a corner. However, he has enough strength to play strong safety in most systems and certainly has more than enough potential to develop into a consistent player. Thomas might have some more to prove before he is ready for the NFL; it would probably make the most sense for him to come back to Texas for at least one more year.

1/19 Update: Thomas kept up his impressive sophomore campaign and ended the year ranked second on the team with 77 tackles. More impressively, he picked off eight passes and broke up 16 more. His versatility is making his stock move up extremely quickly and Thomas should be a first or second round selection when all is said and done and that is why he opted to go pro after just two years of playing for the Longhorns.
This thread is to talk about the Greatest Safety in this years draft IMO if he goes to the right team. Talk about leading up to the draft (Combine, Pro Day Workouts) to his great NCAA years.

Lets Go Steelers

My last thread on my favourite college player except Tygod Taylor (Hah wait until he comes out of college how many threads i will start jk lol)

And this, my friends, is exactly why the restraining order was created.

You gotta admit though Supa, If we were to hear about a rabbit cooking on Thomas' Kitchen stove in the near future, all eyes would be on you...

Seriously though...If the Steelers do grab him i would love to see him converted to corner Opposite Taylor...Taylor seems to play to a higher level when he has someone on the other side with skill....

Thanks let's not make this thread about me only about Earl Thomas. So be it if there is only 1 or 2 replies a week or me just doing updates just want a resource kind of page so that people can view his youtube videos that i searched hard to fine ect ect.

As Long as he isn't a Giants and Especially a Cowboy i will be fine

Wow....this is getting sad Supa...we know you have a man crush on him. It comes up in i would say just about every other thread on the War Room Board. The only thing i see this thread getting is posts like mine and the ones before mine (especially since we've discussed him to death already)....

I love the passion supa. You keep riding Earl Thomas as hard as you can until the draft gets here. LLT rode Doug Legursky a little bit once. Hell I even tried to ride Alex Mack last year.

Draftgeeks do love to pimp their guy............... but your level of pimpin reminds me a little of this

Keep having fun supa
