2013 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:

Dallas Thomas, OT, Tennessee

Tennessee offensive tackle prospect Dallas Thomas is a quick, efficient blocker with serious upside as a left tackle in a zone-blocking scheme.

Thomas is very flexible and bends well in order to establish leverage and maintain position. A really high ceiling pass blocker who is lean enough to move well in open space, yet has the frame to bulk up a little if necessary. Great get-up off the line and he'll need that due to a lack of strength in his lower body. Must learn to stay low and drive from his butt and up to his core then through his hands. Tends to lean when he gets tired and needs to bring more consistent effort.

A very smart blocker. Doesn't get out of position and plays his assignment. Communicates very well with his left guard. Good feet and adequate footwork. Not a drive run blocker. Better when he can move to a spot in order to build forward momentum. Locates well at the second level. Shows better footwork as a run blocker with active feet.

Thomas projects as a mid to late second round pick in the 2013 NFL Draft.
