Sucks for the kid, but if he somehow goes undrafted, some team could get extremely lucky without using a draft pick.

Move over Amini and Kugbilla, make room on the couch.

That's horrible for him, I would use a 5th/6th and give him a redshirt year. Basically what they did with Kug

Brandon Thomas (Clemson),is a guard,if he were a tackle I could see us taking him real late but since he isn't I am not all far it.

sucks for him. was working his butt off to become a high draft pick. would love to get him late in the draft, and stash him on ir for a year.

Here are some scouting negatives on Brendon Thomas.

 

Negatives

  • Keeps too wide a base on the edge and can be exposed by speed conversion from pass-rushers.
  • Will clearly be targeted strictly as a guard by NFL evaluators.
  • Has clear issues with overextension and poor body placement when anticipating outside speed. 
  • Even with the understanding that he has some of the strongest hands in 2014’s offensive line class, he still needs refinement with actual hand placement.
  • Punches to the outside of defenders’ shoulders, which looks like an NFL holding call waiting to happen.
  • Can slip into periods of prolonged play in which pad level can be too high. 
  • Can use long arms as a crutch to not ladder-drill with his feet, which can result in losing balance.
  • Lacks above-average lateral agility. 
  • Tied for the eighth-worst three-cone and 10th-worst short shuttle times at the 2014 combine.
  • Lower-body power and leg drive don’t seem as dominant as his upper-body movements. 
  • Lacks a great amount of explosion out of stance and depends on “going to work” once engaged.
