Everyone has been downing our secondary, but this guy's a player. He's extremely physical and he's a great tackler. It's only natural I suppose from our perspective to get a little worried when a big name player goes away. (Chris Gamble) But Josh's statistical projections from last year are more impressive then Gamble's. Josh Thomas did play in all 16 games last year but mainly as a light rotational player, so most of his year statistics comes from the 4 games he started at the end of the year. Either way he's a CB that in his limited role last year had 35 tackles, 27 solo, with 7 passes defensed, and a fumble recovery. To put that in perspective, in the 2011-12 season Chris Gamble played in 15 games those being starts and he was only able to finish with a total of 45 tackles with 8 assist, and only 3 picks.
Anyway if Josh Thomas is able to recreate his play throughout the course of the whole season he's destined to probably be our best secondary player, and more picks will come his way.
