I have seen Thomas rated as a 2nd round and a solid OT prospect, but I am wondering how his transition to OG has been?

Is he a better OG prospect than at OT?

Who would you compare him too?

You can tell he is learning to play the position but has all the tools necessary to be a very good player. Love him at guard from what I have seen. Athletic, strong, staple of the line. The only thing is that he needs to be more aware of combination blocks and chipping in pass protection instead of just taking care of his space and not helping out.

Haven't seen too much of him, but he seems similar to Cordy Glenn to me.

A smaller, slightly weaker, slightly more athletic version of Cordy. Think he could play either, but would be best served as a G. I would say he is taken about where Cordy Glenn was, late-first to mid-second.

Reminds me of Aaron Sears and should go around the same time in the draft. Before Sears suffered his concussion he was well on his way to becoming an elite NFL guard. Thomas will be a beast for some team that is in a dire need for a guard. If I'm the Cowboys, I would be hard pressed to pass on this guy in the first round. Beast.
