2013 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:
Shamarko Thomas, SS, Syracuse
The first thing that gets your attention about Thomas is his girth. He lacks height, but makes up for it with impressive musculature. Plays like a linebacker and could excel if he plays predominantly in the box. Great tackler, hits with explosive power. Leaves his feet too often when trying to make a highlight reel hit. Reads and reacts at his best when playing downhill. Must learn to maintain leverage by not flying upfield early in the play. Undersized compared to most safety prospects.
Struggles to deflect and intercept passes. Changes directions quickly and stays low to the ground. Shifts and flips his hips well in coverage. Must adapt his coverage skills and grab/hold receivers downfield less frequently. Should be able to keep up with slot receivers but will likely struggle against bigger tight ends over the middle.
Thomas projects as a third round pick in the 2013 NFL Draft.
