Shamarko Thomas: Video Highlights for Former Syracuse SS

Shamarko Thomas is one of the fastest and most explosive safeties in this year's draft class.

Former Syracuse safety Shamarko Thomas, 5’9”, seems to be a fairly undersized safety. However, he does use his natural leverage to his advantage.

Known for his aggressiveness at the line of scrimmage and against the run, Thomas is not afraid to throw his body around in an effort to make big tackles.

Thomas is not the strongest coverage safety in the draft due to his size limitations, which cause him to lose on jump balls, but he is very quick and can close gaps in the secondary very fast.

Being versatile certainly helps Thomas as well. During his years at Syracuse, he saw playing time at linebacker and cornerback before settling at safety. He is a very well-versed defensive player and would certainly be an upgrade to many NFL rosters.

Let’s take a look at some highlights from Thomas’ days with the Orange.
