Josh Thomas to the Dallas Cowboys: 2011 NFL Draft Scouting Report

Keith ThomasContributor IIIApril 30, 2011

Although an undersized cornerback at 5'10", 196 pounds, Buffalo’s Josh Thomas plays with heart and tenacity.

In his 24 career starts, he knocked down 29 passes, which is tied for fifth on the school’s all-time list.

In 2010, Thomas recorded 58 tackles, 5.5 tackles for loss and two sacks to go along with one interception and eight pass breakups.

Due to an injury, the Cedar Hill, Texas native got an opportunity to start right away and ended up in the starting role for the majority of his career, having started in 22 of his last 24 games.

Still, his size has scouts concerned about his ability to deal with the big, physical wide receivers of the NFL.

At Cedar Hill High School, Thomas was a first-team All-district selection, tallying 109 tackles, four interceptions and five pass breakups.
