Logan Thomas has endured a very up-and-down career at Virginia Tech, but he brings a lot of talent to the table that could help the Jets in more ways than one.
The biggest quarterback at the Senior Bowl (6'5"), Thomas has a great arm and size that will draw comparisons to Cam Newton.
While he is a talented thrower and certainly looks the part in pads, he has struggled with accuracy and decision-making while quarterbacking the Hokies, throwing 13 interceptions in 2013. However, he appears to be thriving in the professional environment so far at the Senior Bowl, NFL.com's Bucky Brooks observes:
Not only does Thomas have a lot of potential as a quarterback, but he could potentially make a position move to tight end if quarterback does not work out at the next level given his size. In fact, he was recruited to Virginia Tech as a tight end before switching back to quarterback, which he played in high school.
As it turns out, the Jets need a tight end as badly as anyone in the league with both of their incumbent starters, Jeff Cumberland and Kellen Winslow, set to hit free agency.
The true test for Thomas as a quarterback will be in live action at the Senior Bowl when the bullets are flying, but so far, Thomas looks like a player who will be a better professional than college player.
