We'll often hear this draft season that Thomas has "what can't be taught" when referring to his physical attributes, but can touch and accuracy be taught? It can be tweaked and improved from a mechanical standpoint, but from his performances the past two days along with three years of game film, it's tough to see the upside with Thomas. It wouldn't surprise me if the Virginia Tech quarterback ends up hearing his name called on the second day of the draft. But a team that drafts him that high is living on a hope and a prayer - similar to many of Thomas' throws this week. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
