Josh Thomas Scouting Report
Josh Thomas
Josh Thomas - Buffalo (HT: 5-10¼ - WT: 191)
Combine 40: 4.51 - Pro Day 40: N/A - Position Rank: 31 of 45

Positives: Has average height and weight, pretty good bulk for his frame... Adequate speed... Has the ability to pop the ball out on contact, forced five fumbles in college... Has good leaping ability for his size, goes up at the highest point and has pretty good hands... Has pretty fluid hips, looks loose and athletic when turning and opening up with receivers... Has good instincts and route-recognition skills, is a heady player who understands his responsibilities and the tendencies of opposing receivers... Was also a track participant in college, has good athleticism and looks fairly fast in pads... Good character guy who works hard and is well-respected by teammates and coaches.

Negatives: Stats were never really that impressive, only recorded two interceptions and 205 tackles in four years at Buffalo... Is a little better in zone coverage than man-to-man coverage, still needs to polish his man coverage technique... Could stand to add a little bulk to his frame without losing much speed, is a little thin for the position... Can struggle to get off blocks from bigger receivers, will not out-muscle most blockers... Gets a little overaggressive and will get caught out of position, takes some chances and can get caught by play action.
