BEST QUOTE as far as I am concerned:
What will you miss most about Troy University?

Eric Tank Thomas: Iíll miss the homecomings and the home games playing in Troy in front of The Trojan Nation.

IMO he is a better all around receiver than JJ. More physical and better hands. The difference in them was JJ was a better play maker after the catch and was a kick returner also. IMO there is no doubt ET will be playing on Sunday.

Agreed. Thomas is more the prototype NFL receiver size wise. I can't see him not being drafted. A lot depends on the NFL combine. Hope he has a good showing there.

From what I've read on various NFL draft sites, they are not as high on him as we are. One site has him the 68th ranked receiver in draft. Another he isn't even ranked out of 84 receivers.

Eric will most likely not get drafted, I see a Free Agent signing in his future. That isn't taking anything away from him, its just the nature of the game. Doesn't mean he won't become a super star either, with a chance he can do it same as anyone else in the League.

We all know what he's got, and with a fair shot at camp I believe he can get in the game. ET is one of the best we've had at the position and I look forward to following his career beyond Cardinal.

March On Eric!

I think he will be a steal for some team. Might not be the fastest player, but his hands and physicality are NFL Caliber.

I'd love for the Titans to pick him up. Go Blue.
