Former Ohio State wide receiver Mike Thomas doesn't have world-class track speed, but like his uncle, Keyshawn Johnson, he won't need it at the next level.
Thomas showed divine body control and one of the best catch-drop ratios in the country. On Thursday at the NFL combine, Thomas showed up at 6'3", 212 pounds. He then showcased the tools that made those dazzling tight rope catches possible.
Michael Thomas came in at 6'3, 212 lbs, 32 1/8" arms and 10 1/2" hands. Wow.— Matt Miller (@nfldraftscout) February 25, 2016
For a comparison on how ridiculous that is, here are Taylor Decker's measurements from Wednesday:
And Ohio State OT Taylor Decker measured in at 6-foot-7 and 310 pounds. Also had 33 & 3/4-inch arms.— Eric Seger (@EricSeger33) February 24, 2016
Reminder: Taylor Decker is a first-round offensive tackle.
As for his hand size, Carolina Panther quarterback Cam Newton's hands were measured at 9 and 7/8 inches during the 2011 NFL Combine.
Don't be surprised when Thomas quickly becomes a problem for NFL secondaries next fall.
