Ourlads' Profile:

2018 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about IAN THOMAS: Indiana, 6035 259 4.74. One-year starter from Baltimore, MD. A junior college transfer who lines up all over the formation - inline, slot, and at the wingback spot. A mismatch who has the speed to threaten seams in a defense and the athletic ability to make impact plays. The ex-Hoosier gets a clean release up the field and is crafty to avoid contact. A work in progress as a route runner. He doesn’t set up defenders at the break point or get in and out of his breaks quickly. Inconsistent hands. Rarely catches the ball cleanly. Struggled in the Senior Bowl during the week with a series of dropped passes. Thomas flashes the ability to adjust to a poorly thrown ball, tracks the ball over the shoulder. Can also make the one-handed circus catch at times. Runs strong after catch with the speed to separate from the pursuit. Aggressive and physical blocking the end of the line. Quick enough to reach and seal the edge. Needs to improve his use of hands to lock up the defender’s breast plate. Solid backup who can work into a starting role. 2017 stats: 25-376, 15 ypr, 5 TD. OSR:3/16. Fourth/fifth round. (A-32 1/2, H-10, VJ-36, SS-4.20).
