Logan Thomas in the fifth round of the 2014 NFL Draft and while there was some belief that Thomas could see a position change the Arizona Cardinals currently view him as a quarterback.
At Virginia Tech the now 22-year-old showed great arm strength but accuracy has always been a concern. At 6-feet-6 and 250 pounds, Thomas has the ideal size for a quarterback and he can more than help himself with his legs.
“When you are convinced you have the franchise quarterback, you take him in the first round,” General Manager Steve Keim said. “If you think a guy can be a franchise quarterback, you take a chance later in the draft.”
In Arizona, Thomas will be fighting for the third spot on the Cardinals depth chart behind Carson Palmer and Drew Stanton.
Thomas completed just 55.6 percent of his passes in four seasons at Virginia Tech, with 53 touchdowns and 39 interceptions.
“Everybody is basing it on the season, and I understand that’s what’s on film,” Thomas said. “But this offseason was the chance to really be able to refine some things and I feel really, really good about it.”
