Arizona has confirmed Virginia Tech's Logan Thomas will be a quarterback in the pros, and HC Bruce Arians said his accuracy issues were "easily correctable."
ESPN's Bill Polian is amongst the leaders of the group that believe accuracy is not fixable. If it can be, though, Arians and assistant head coach Tom Moore are two teachers needy students would seek out. The Cardinals grabbed Thomas with the No. 120 pick, decent range to swing for the fences on otherworldly physical talent. "When you are convinced you have the franchise quarterback, you take him in the first round," GM Steve Keim said. "If you think a guy can be a franchise quarterback, you take a chance later in the draft." Thomas will be stashed as the No. 3 QB while Arians and Moore go to work on a 6-foot-6, 250-pounder that tested as the class' fastest, highest-leaping, longest-jumping and strongest-armed QB.

Cardinals selected Virginia Tech QB Logan Thomas with the No. 120 overall pick in the 2014 NFL draft.

Thomas (6-foot-5 3/4, 248) was hyped as a future No. 1 pick following his redshirt sophomore year, but never improved his accuracy and will enter the pros as a developmental project despite 40 college starts. He finished his career with a 55.5 completion rate and 53:39 TD-to-INT ratio. A high school tight end and wideout as a college freshman, Thomas runs 4.61 with a 35 1/2-inch vertical and 9-foot-10 broad jump -- freak measurables for a 250-pound quarterback. He has a cannon arm and massive hands (10 7/8"), and could perhaps develop into a poor man's Cam Newton with a fantastic coaching job. There might not be a better fit in the NFL for Thomas than with Bruce Arians and Arizona.

NFL.com's Bucky Brooks would select Virginia Tech QB Logan Thomas over Pittsburgh's Tom Savage and SMU's Garrett Gilbert "because he is more talented, athletic and experienced than those players."

The analyst passes on that QB guru George Whitfield, Jr. compared Thomas' talent to former pupils including Cam Newton and Ben Roethlisberger. "He told me the Virginia Tech standout was on par with the Pro Bowlers from a physical standpoint and just needed some seasoning to become a viable option as a quarterback at the next level," Brooks wrote. The 6-foot-6, 250-pound Thomas tested as the class' fastest, highest leaping, longest jumping and strongest-armed QB. "I believe San Francisco, Carolina, Kansas City and Philadelphia would be ideal spots based on their experience developing young, athletic quarterbacks," Brooks wrote. "Although those aforementioned teams aren't in need of a quarterback, the opportunity to bring along an intriguing developmental prospect in a low-pressure environment could pay huge dividends down the road."

If Virginia Tech QB Logan Thomas falls to Day 3, he will be a "low risk, very high reward" pick, according to ESPN's Louis Riddick.

"Unknown as to if Logan Thomas will ever fix his inconsistencies," Riddick wrote as a preface. The analyst added that Thomas and Aaron Murray had the "two best QB combine interviews as far as how positively authentic they seemed." Thomas' absurd physical gifts show up on the tape just as clearly as his aforementioned inconsistencies: The 6-foot-6, 250-pounder had the fastest QB forty (4.61) at the NFL Combine, the best vertical (35.5''), the best broad-jump (9'10''), and the best throwing velocity at 60 mph (Pitt's Tom Savage finished second at 57).

ESPN's Mel Kiper projects Virginia Tech QB Logan Thomas to go late in Round 2, or early in Round 3.

On the "First Draft" podcast, Kiper and Todd McShay discussed how the three highest-rising QBs during the process -- Derek Carr, Tom Savage and Zach Mettenberger, in their estimation -- all had huge arms, and Kiper brought up perhaps the toolsiest prospect, Thomas. The Hokies' star is strangely rarely discussed despite the NFL's obsession with size, speed and arm strength. This kid has those attributes in spades: At 6-foot-6, 250-pounds, Thomas had the fastest QB forty (4.61) at the NFL Combine, the best vertical (35.5''), the best broad-jump (9'10''), and the best throwing velocity at 60 mph (Savage finished second at 57). Thomas might be able to shift to TE if the light never comes on as a signal-caller. Kiper's prediction passes the smell taste, even if many don't think the bulb works.

The Patriots, according to "league wide" feel, will select a QB in May's draft, according to draft insider Tony Pauline.

The Patriots worked out Virginia Tech QB Logan Thomas earlier this week, and have brought in higher rated prospects at the position as well, such as Teddy Bridgewater. "They expect to lose Ryan Mallett at the end of next season, hence the interest in Thomas," Pauline wrote. New England's fortunes turned around when they won the lottery on a developmental QB prospect, and the 36-year-old Tom Brady may only have two or three seasons left. Could Bill Belichick and company strike gold once again late in the draft?

The Patriots will work out Virginia Tech QB Logan Thomas on Wednesday, according to draft insider Tony Pauline.

Receiver DJ Coles will also be involved in the workout. The Patriots have certainly spent plenty of time with quarterbacks in this draft, which leads us to think they will select one. A big question is if the Patriots will sign Ryan Mallett after his contract is up following the season. If they select a quarterback in the top three-rounds, that is doubtful.

Cardinals coach Bruce Arians worked out Virginia Tech QB Logan Thomas on Wednesday.

Arizona is in the market for a developmental QB prospect, and there might not be a more intriguing option than Thomas. The Hokies' signal-caller is, quite simply, athletic Silly Putty begging for learned hands. At 6-foot-6, 250-pounds, Thomas had the fastest QB forty (4.61) at the NFL Combine, the best vertical (35.5''), the best broad-jump (9'10'') and the best throwing velocity at 60 mph (Pitt's Tom Savage finished second at 57 mph). If the light ever comes on, watch out. Some evaluators who have perused his tape, however, will speak with urgent pessimism towards that possibility.

NFL Media analyst Charles Davis lists Virginia Tech QB Logan Thomas as an alternate option in the second round for the Houston Texans.

"Thomas is a bit of a wild card as a very up-and-down performer -- I'm slotting him in the second round, although more people are comfortable with him as a third-round pick," Davis wrote. "His physical attributes blow you away, and he's also impressing people along the trail with his mental ability. A coach is going to watch him throw and think, "I can do something with this guy," which could move him up draft boards." Thomas put on a absolute show at the combine, and with his ability to impress in meetings and on the chalk board it improves his stock moving forward. The second round could be a little early for Thomas, look for his name to be called on day three of the draft.

Virginia Tech led "AQ" schools with 39 drops by WRs, TEs and RBs in 2013, according to ESPN.

While Logan Thomas made his own set of mistakes, he certainly was not helped by his receiver play. The Virginia Tech passer has generated a bit of a cult following from some in the draft community, with many questioning why a team should select a limited passer rather than one with a very high ceiling. Thomas just has not shown much improvement in the last two seasons, however.

CBS Sports' Bruce Feldman noted interest in Chip Kelly and Jim Harbaugh's attendance at Virginia Tech's pro day to scout Virginia Tech QB Logan Thomas.

These are two coaches that Thomas should be dying to play for. Harbaugh, apparently not content with the Blaine Gabbert trade alone, could be looking for a long-term developmental prospect; he's made no secret of his interest in the QBs of the 2014 class while he's made the scouting rounds. If Thomas ever maximized his ability, he'd be downright scary as Kelly's field general in the Eagles' breakneck offense. Because Philadelphia employs Nick Foles and Matt Barkley, Thomas would be assured of the two or three years' development time he'll require.

ESPN's Mel Kiper said he would not be surprised if Virginia Tech QB Logan Thomas is a TE by the 2016 season.

"If he doesn't get it done at quarterback, then you could have a potential tight end on your hands," Kiper said on a conference call. Thomas will almost certainly be drafted as a quarterback, but his development has been slow over the past two seasons. Thomas' workout numbers were outrageous and compared to Jimmy Graham and Rob Gronkowski from a size and movement standpoint. The biggest question, however, is if he can win at the catch point.

Virginia Tech QB Logan Thomas registered the fastest throwing speed at the NFL Combine, clocking in at 60 mph.

Maimi's Stephen Morris was next at 59 mph. Rather than praising the strongest arm, the test can be used more as a threshold, as few quarterbacks who post below 54 mph sustain success. That could all change with Mike Glennon, who registered 49 mph last year. David Fales and AJ McCarron clocked in at 53 mph.

CBS Sports' Bruce Feldman called Virginia Tech QB Logan Thomas "a fascinating case for NFL personnel people."

The 6-foot-6, 250-pounder is coming off a dominant NFL Combine in which he had the fastest QB forty (4.61), the best vertical (35.5''), broad-jump (9'10'') and throw velocity at 60 mph (Pitt's Tom Savage finished second at 57 mph). Unfortunately, he's also coming off a rough senior season. "Thomas actually didn't have much quarterbacking experience before arriving in Blacksburg," wrote Feldman. "He was recruited as a tight end. He had a terrific sophomore year but was shaky the past two years as the skill talent around him declined. His accuracy is suspect, as is his decision-making. His physical tools and size are jaw-dropping."

With an official forty-yard dash of 4.61 seconds, Virginia Tech QB Logan Thomas led all quarterbacks at the NFL's combine.

The 22-year-old logged unofficial forty times of 4.57 and 4.60. He also led all QBs in the vertical (35.5"), and broad jump (9'10"), which should surprise nobody who watched the supremely athletic specimen play in college. Thomas tipped the scales in Indy at 6-foot-6 1/8 and 248 pounds. We expect Thomas to be selected in the third- or fourth-round.
