Tackles rarely get noticed by the average fan unless they give up a sack or take a penalty. You know a tackle is doing a great job when you're not hearing his name called out at all. It's ultimately a thankless job but the most lucrative non-skill position on offense.
Dallas Thomas started three seasons as a left tackle before shifting inside to guard in 2012. He excelled in both positions, but the fact that he was moved inside at all is a bit of an indictment for his abilities as a tackle.
Which position he projects to play in the NFL will come down to team needs and scheme, but Thomas looks like a prospect set to make an impact early in his career.
