Biography

NoteCARDS:

• Selected in the fourth round (120th overall) in the 2014 NFL Draft, Thomas was the sixth QB taken in the draft behind Blake Bortles (3rd, Jacksonville), Johnny Manziel (22nd, Cleveland), Teddy Bridgewater (32nd, Minnesota), Derek Carr (36th, Oakland) and Jimmy Garoppolo (62nd, New England).

• Despite playing just three full seasons at QB for the Hokies, Thomas set school career-records in pass attempts (1,248), pass completions (693), passing yards (9,003), TD passes (53), total offense (10,354) and combined TDs (77).

• Thomas was a freshman QB at Virginia Tech in 2009, which was exactly 35 years after Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians was named the Hokies MVP as a senior QB. During the 2011 season Thomas rushed for 11 TDs, tying Arians’ single-season school mark (11, 1974) for rushing TDs by a QB.

• A standout QB in high school, Thomas was recruited to Virginia Tech as an H-back. However, the Hokie coaches convinced him prior to his freshman year in 2009 to make the switch to QB. He redshirted in 2009 and backed up Tyrod Taylor the following season while also playing briefly at receiver. He took over as the Hokies starting QB in 2011 and went on to start 40 consecutive games.
