As the NFL Draft continues to draw closer, we are starting to get an idea of what every player brings to the table. With that said, there is one prospect with a lot of unknowns. Logan Thomas, a QB out of Virginia Tech, is highly praised as an explosive athlete, but uncertainty about what his position will be in the NFL has some hesitant about him.

Viewed by some as a TE, and by others as a QB, it’s very unclear right now just exactly what position Thomas will end up playing in the pros. The thing is, the answer is simple: Thomas is a quarterback, and it should stay that way in the NFL.

Possessing fantastic size at 6-foot-6, 248 pounds, Thomas is a monster of a physical specimen, and has all the physical tools a team wants in their franchise quarterback. With phenomenal arm strength, Thomas has the ability to make any throw, and with his athleticism, Thomas is equally as adept at avoiding the pressure and extending plays.

With that said, Thomas isn’t a perfect prospect by a long shot. His accuracy is extremely suspect, and his footwork is an absolute mess. Not to mention, although he is excellent at avoiding pressure, he does sometimes have a tendency to run the ball even if he has a receiver open. The fact is, that’s not going to cut it in the NFL.

Overall, the reasons why Thomas should remain at the quarterback position are obvious. He has all the physical tools to improve, and it’s just a matter of correcting some of the mental issues that plagued his college career and cleaning up his technique.
