    I still believe that, talent wise, he is better than what any team can find in the 3rd round, and possibly the 2nd.

    Martin? After a bad season at rt and benched after a half season at lt? How is that preferable to a second round pick this year?

    Even if the bullying story had never happened you wouldnt get a third round pick for Martin imo

    The issue that set Thomas back (among other things) is for whatever reason our coaching staff spent all offseason trying to make him into the swing OT and Martin's main backup at LT. Then George Selvie destroyed him in the HoF game and Thomas was moved over to RT and didn't fair much better. Sure he played OT before for the Vols (not as a senior though) but anybody who watched him play knew he was a guard at the next level.

    And while some can do it, being a young player and being asked to prepare as if you are an OT and then being moved strictly to guard isn't easy... especially when you are fundamentally flawed like Thomas was (see difference in Jimmy Wilson when the staff told him to bulk up to play safety but due to injuries was the nickle CB last year compared to this year when he got back to CB weight)
