On film the third best offensive guard prospect in this draft is Dallas Thomas left guard from Tennessee. Thomas also played left tackle and shows some ability at that position giving him added versatility as well. Whether or not Thomas is the third offensive guard taken off the board is probably unlikely due to his injury suffered during the Senior Bowl week.
Due to a shoulder injury Thomas didn’t participate in any of the workouts at the NFL combine so there is no real way to gauge his athleticism as compared to other offensive linemen who did. As an offensive guard prospect however Thomas looks like he could push to be the third overall guard taken in the NFL draft. He played left tackle during his first two years at Tennessee before moving inside to guard where he excelled. The complicated question with Thomas is he an offensive tackle or a guard? Based on his 2012 film if the Bears drafted him to be their starting left guard they could wind up with very good value.no comments
