2023 Guide: What Ourlads’ NFL Scouting Services said about STARLING THOMAS V:

Alabama-Birmingham | H: 5096 W: 194 40: 4.45 A: 3038 H: 0934 W: 7500

Three year starter, Birmingham, AL. First team All-Conference USA in 2022. Twitchy corner with a high motor. Has experience both outside and in the slot. At his best as a press and zone corner. In press he shows a stiff off-hand jam and can disrupt the release and ride a receiver to the sideline. Mirrors most route breaks and has the speed to cover deep. As a zone defender has a solid feel for route progressions and quickly closes voids in the zone. Read and react on the delivery key is a major strength and has a burst breaking on the throw. Has been productive breaking up passes. Solid in run support he’s aggressive coming downhill and drives through tackles. As an off man corner lacks great footwork and lets receivers up on his toes too often. Will get grabby as a result and prone to penalties. Will give up leverage at times and is in recovery mode early in the route. Needs development as an off man corner. His value may be in the slot and his aggressive style could play well there. Has been a solid kick and punt returner and could find a home on special teams and sub packages.

2022 Stats: 30 T, 1 TFL, 15 PBU. 7th round/PFA.
