08/10/13 - TOP GEORGIA TECH PROSPECTS FOR THE 2014 NFL DRAFT: 3. DB Jemea Thomas (5-10, 190, 4.54)...Although he's had his ups and downs at Georgia Tech, Thomas is the type of prospect who can grow on you the more you see. He provided depth at safety and cornerback early in his career before taking over at the starting rover position last season, leading the team with four interceptions. Thomas also finished second on the team in tackles with 86 total stops, using his physical nature and strength to finish when he's in the area.
He is a fluid athlete with the footwork to cover a lot of ground and puts himself in good position with his natural awareness to read/react quickly. Thomas, who is among the active leaders in the ACC with seven career interceptions, will move to cornerback in 2013 for his final season at Georgia Tech and is expected to be one of the senior leaders on defense. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
