Thomas Brown RB Georgia
Thomas is a fast, shifty, quick RB with good balance and
strength. He is a strong blocker and plays bigger than his
size because of his bulk and intelligence. Thomas reminds
me a lot of Darren Sproles (RB San Diego Chargers). He has
the strength and power to get the tough yards between the
tackles as well as the speed to turn the corner. Thomas
runs with excellent vision in the hole and if you donít
tackle him at the line of scrimmage, you run the risk of
looking at his numbers all the way down the field as he
scores a TD. He is a very underrated back who has good
hands out of the backfield as well as down the field.
Thomas will be able to help your offense at multiple
positions with not a lot of touches and will impact for the
team that drafts him right away.
NEEDS TO IMPROVE
Thomas will always have the injury issue question hung on
him because of his size. All he has to do is stay injury
free and he will shut those critics up real fast.
TALENT BOARD ROUND 2
Thomas is an impact player
of his unique size, speed, strength and athletic talents.
He is a match-up nightmare, which is what makes him so
valuable to the team that drafts him. He is too fast for
the LBís and Safeties and too strong for the CBís. He is so
quick between the tackles that DTís will not be able to shed
quickly enough to make a tackle. He is a little bit
stronger when he runs the ball than Darren Sproles, but heís
not as strong as Maurice Jones Drew (RB Jacksonville
Jaguars). Thomas will help a team the day after they draft
him because of his multiple talents and his ability to play
more than one position, which is all you can ask for when
you draft a player. In this draft, with so many RBís, it is
very hard to say in what round Thomas will be drafted. I
can tell you this, the team that drafts him will be very
happy they did and the fans will be happier.
