Notes:
Part of a backfield-by-committee as a senior, Thomas ran for 755 yards and five touchdowns while averaging an impressive 5.8 ypc...Ranks seventh on the Illini career rushing list with 2,393 yards...Had his best season as a sophomore and failed to take a step forward the next two years...Thomas is a slasher who is willing to run between the tackles and fight for extra yardage...Shows good quickness through the hole and can make tacklers miss...Is a dangerous kick returner who may have to be a standout special teams player to hang around in the NFL...Does not figure to be an every-down back at the pro level.
