2016 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about MICHAEL THOMAS: Ohio State, 6026 212 4.56. Junior entry. Started 27 of 39 games over his career. From Los Angeles, CA. Leading Buckeye receiver with an NFL type body. Nephew of former NFL star receiver Keyshawn Johnson. Flashes big play ability and has the size and strength to dominate. Has the strength to get off press coverage but his footwork is inconsistent and uneven in his effort. Flashes good ball skills in traffic. Big hands to snatch the ball in tight quarters. Has the courage to go over the middle. A multiple alignment receiver. The ex-Buckeye lined up on the right side 46.6% of the time and 48% on the left side. The 3.7% of the time he was in the slot was when Braxton Miller was elsewhere. He dropped 7.5% of his targets which is above the 5.9% norm. Lacks fluid body control and balance when running slants and quick outs and hitches. Slow to cut and change direction instead of cutting at full speed. Inconsistent blocker. A possession type developmental receiver who ran a very basic route tree. He needs work on route running and all the nuances of NFL receiver play. An athletic high risk/high reward talent. 2015 stats: 56-781, 13.9 ypr, 9 TD. OSR:13/ 42. Second/third round. (A-32 1/8, H-10 1/2, VJ-35, SS-4.13).
