Cowboys’ Potential Pick: Dallas Thomas, OT, Tennessee
My latest scouting report is on Tennessee OT/OG Dallas Thomas.
Thomas is a tall, lean player at 6-5, 306 pounds. His 33-inch arms are about average for someone his size, so he should be fine to play either inside or out. It’s worth wondering why he was moved inside for his senior season because Thomas certainly has the athleticism to play left tackle in college. He’s somewhat of a finesse player, excelling in space when asked to get to the second level.
I watched four of Thomas’s games—two from 2011 and two from 2012—and he is a natural bender whether playing at guard or tackle. He does a really nice job of mirroring defenders when playing guard, using his arms to shield them from the quarterback in pass protection. His hand usage is outstanding.
