Andrew Thomas 2020 NFL Draft Profile
2020 NFL Draft
Andrew Thomas is one of the top four offensive linemen that no one is really sure where they will go. Most believe the four guys are the top offensive lineman, but which way they should be ranked is up for debate. Coming out of high school, Thomas was a four-star recruit in the class of 2017.
College Career: Once Thomas arrived at Georgia, it didn’t take long for him to find success. As a freshman, he started all 15 games at right tackle and for his play was named a freshman All-American. As a sophomore, he moved to left tackle and was named to second-team all-American and first-team All-Sec.
As a Junior, he started 13 games at left tackle and was named to the first-team all-American.
Pros: Thomas is a massive man who is really strong and does a great job of pushing defenders down the field. Thomas is also very smart and really understands the game of football. Before the ball is snapped he does a great job of making sure he has everything surveyed and knows where the blitzes might be coming from. He also plays a mean streak and isn’t afraid to mix it up a bit with defenders.
Cons: There aren’t a whole lot of cons with Thomas’s game, but there are a few things he could improve on. At times his hands get too high while he is pass protecting. His mean streak is a positive, but it also can be a negative. At times he gets a little too carried away and a 15-yard penalty or two will probably happen in the NFL. At times he could also play a little more flexible, especially with his lower body.
Projected Teams: Tom Brady needs some protection and adding Thomas would make a lot of sense. This is a team in a win-now mode, and Thomas should be able to come in right away and be a contributor
If the Atlanta Falcons are looking to go offensive line again in the first round. Thomas would make a whole lot of sense too. .
