2011 NFL Draft Profile: Josh Thomas

Height: 5-10

Weight: 190lbs

PROS: Good bulk for his frame and acceptable height for the cornerback position at the NFL level. Plays bigger than his size. Is fast enough for the corner position and tackles well, has a knack for forcing fumbles. Has good hips and looks fluid when turning and running with wide receivers. Has good instincts and doesn’t make very many mental mistakes. Known as a hard workers.

CONS: Lack of interceptions might raise some concerns. Only had two interceptions in 4 years of starting at Buffalo. Still a bit raw in man to man coverage. Will get out muscled by bigger receivers. Best fit might be on the inside as a nickel corner. Is known to take a lot of chances and can get caught trying to gamble on play action.
