Hogs Haven takes a look at prospects heading into the 2020 NFL Draft

NCAA Football: Texas A&M at Georgia Brett Davis-USA TODAY Sports

Andrew Thomas

Position: Offensive Tackle

Height: 6’5”

Weight: 320 lbs.

College: Georgia

Strengths:

Thomas looks to be an ideal NFL offensive lineman with excellent size, strength, quickness and athleticism. He has long arms, a stout frame and good footwork. Thomas has held up admirably in the trenches against fierce SEC competition week in and week out. He consistently keeps quarterbacks upright and can be an immediate anchor to an offensive line.

Weaknesses:

The gap between college and NFL competition is vast, and Thomas could stand to benefit from refining his technique and hips before making the leap to the NFL.

Why he may fit with Washington:

With former Pro Bowl left tackle Trent Williams holding out for good, Washington has an immediate need on the offensive line, which has struggle to hold up for much of the season. To keep rookie quarterback Dwayne Haskins, who appears to be the team’s future behind center for the time being, upright, Thomas would be an excellent choice to strengthen the offensive line around. It would be hard for Washington to justify passing on Williams’ successor in the early first round.

Bottom Line:

Thomas looks to be a huge help on the offensive line from Day 1 with Pro Bowl upside thanks to ideal strength, length and quickness.

Projected Round: Early 1st
