I just wish we would STOP with the zone blocking read option crap and line up in the I, put a hat on a hat and run the tailback behind the fullback through a designated gosh-danged hole. There is NO REASON why this program shouldn't be able to find 5 fat guys who can move some people out of the way and clear a lane for a back to get through!
Well, CBS Sports projects him as a 7th round pick. Given his size, that seems reasonable. There are a few NFL teams that would be willing to go that route. The money is in the team's favor. Its nice that LT feels as if he understands the game and reading defenses better now. Thomas clearly had the misfortune of being on a team with no supporting cast at all on offense. On the other hand, I think NFL teams will be concerned by LT's 13 int's, particularly the four int's in the loss against Duke. I would say if he gets drafted totally depends on what he does at the NFL Combine or in pro workouts.
Late in the draft if he looks good at the combine and at his pro day he certainly will be drafted and then he has to show something in pre season to make a roster.

Good QBs elevate the players around them.
Those are all reasons why NFL teams scout all-star games and hold the Combine. Thomas was clearly hurt by not having Wilson/Williams/Evans/Suggs/Jones type running backs to hand off to and Boykin/Coale/Wilford/Freeman/Royal type receivers his entire career at Tech. Perhaps its a testament to LT's ability that he set career marks at Tech without stars around him.
