 Donald Thomas Snapshot
 Draft Scout Snapshot: 2007: All-Big East Conference first-team selection…Shifted to right offensive guard, starting all thirteen games, but a shoulder contusion would sideline him for the second half vs. Pittsburgh and he left the Louisville clash in the first quarter after a re-injury…Finished with 77 knockdowns, eight touchdown-resulting blocks and a grade of 82.83% for blocking consistency, earning the team's Unsung Hero Award…Part of a unit that averaged 347.2 yards per game…Was penalized three times and allowed just an assisted quarterback sack and two pressures on 360 pass plays…Also returned a kickoff 13 yards vs. Pittsburgh. Played in 10 games and earned his first career start at left guard in '06. Played in all 11 games on special teams, serving as the wedge-buster in kickoffs in '05. Redshirted in '04. Was enrolled at UConn but did not play football in '03.

  The UConn offensive line is in the interesting position of being both young and experienced at the same time. The Huskies have just one senior on the two-deep yet also have eight players with previous game experience at UConn, including seven people who have started games on the offensive line for the blue and white. The lone senior of the group is senior Donald Thomas at right guard, a former walk-on. Entering the 2007 season, William Beatty (9), captain Keith Gray (5), Mike Hicks (10), Alex LaMagdelaine (10), Dan Ryan (7), Donald Thomas (1) and Trey Tonsing (8) had all started games for the Huskies. 2007 All-BIG EAST Conference First Team (Coaches): OG Thomas started all 12 games at right guard and did not allow a sack in 2007. After befriending Lansanah on the campus' rec basketball courts, Thomas joined the team as a walk-on during his sophomore year and later earned both a scholarship and starting role through hard work. - UConn Football...Full Donald Thomas Draft Profile
