Draft Scout Logan Thomas News
05/12/14 - On Friday night, coach Bruce Arians seemed to rule out the Cardinals drafting a quarterback. About 15 hours later, they took Virginia Tech's Logan Thomas in the fourth round. "I lied pretty good," Arians said. "I didn't want anybody jumping in front of us. There were teams calling him to see if anybody else had called yet. I know two teams that were going to take him right behind us.' On Friday, Arians was asked how he would respond to fans who believed the team should have drafted a quarterback, Arians responded: 'Why? We've got three pretty good ones and you don't take quarterbacks if they're not going to beat the guys out that you have. I know people rate quarterbacks. I've been doing this for a long time, rating quarterbacks. I like ours better." Arians said the top of the depth chart won't change. Carson Palmer is the starter. Drew Stanton is the backup. Thomas will compete with Ryan Lindley for the No. 3 job. - The Sports Xchange
05/12/14 - A closer look at the Cardinals' picks: Round 4/120 - Logan Thomas, QB, 6-6, 250, Virginia Tech...The major surprise of the Cardinals draft. Just the day before, coach Bruce Arians said no quarterback remaining was better than the three on the team's roster. Thomas is a project who won't play for at least a year or two. He had trouble with accuracy in college. - The Sports Xchange
05/06/14 - 2014 NFL Draft Quarterbacks: Logan Thomas, Virginia Tech, 6-6, 248, 4.61...A tease in search of a tutor. Thomas has the best combination of size, speed, athleticism and arm strength among all quarterbacks in this draft. He just can't shoot straight and struggles mightily with accuracy, not a good thing for a quarterback. - Frank Cooney, The Sports Xchange
01/21/14 - 2014 Senior Bowl: Another mixed bag from the North QBs on Tuesday...After an inconsistent practice on Monday, NFL scouts and coaches were eager to see the North quarterbacks on Tuesday, especially with a strong wind swirling around Ladd-Peebles Stadium. But unfortunately it was another inconsistent practice for Virginia Tech QB Logan Thomas, Clemson QB Tajh Boyd and Miami (Fla.) QB Stephen Morris. Thomas is the most physically gifted quarterback, not only in Mobile this week, but in the entire class with his tall, well-proportioned frame and big arm to toss the ball anywhere he wants on the field. But touch continues to be an issue with him. During Tuesday's practice, Thomas would throw a perfect laser that hit his intended target s between the numbers, but then would follow it up with an overthrow that sailed well over the receivers head and another errant pass that caused the wideout to re-route in order to try and track down the throw.
We'll often hear this draft season that Thomas has “what can't be taught” when referring to his physical attributes, but can touch and accuracy be taught? It can be tweaked and improved from a mechanical standpoint, but from his performances the past two days along with three years of game film, it's tough to see the upside with Thomas. It wouldn't surprise me if the Virginia Tech quarterback ends up hearing his name called on the second day of the draft. But a team that drafts him that high is living on a hope and a prayer – similar to many of Thomas' throws this week. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
12/31/13 - PLAYERS TO WATCH: Virginia Tech QB Logan Thomas is the lifeblood of the Hokies' offense. His passing and rushing are essential to the success of the team. The senior has passed for 2,861 yards and 16 touchdowns, and is second on the team with 295 rushing yards and three scores. His running skill will be even more critical for Virginia Tech in the bowl game because of the absence of leading rusher Trey Edmunds, who will miss the game because of a broken leg. Thomas ranks third in the ACC in total offense per game (262.9), fourth in passing yards per game (238.4) and seventh in total touchdowns (20). - The Sports Xchange
