KENNY THOMAS | Louisville | OL | 6065 | 331 | 0948 | 3338 | 8338 | Agent: Shaun Naidoo
Wore jersey #62 at HUB on 4/14/21. Has been used at both OT and OG but from an NFL or other perspective, it would be interior only... trouble is, he has poor movement skills, too limited for CFL and would struggle against quality NFL inside pass rushers... he has worked hard to get himself into better shape and conditioning than previous evaluations, including at Louisville... hard to judge him so tough as he is a quality guy, wants to be a good player and his effort has improved... just slow-footed and no natural motor or killer instinct... bring his pads and weight but not a powerful enough force as run blocker and then struggles to stay on his blocks in pass pro... gets too high, falls off and would be on the ground too often vs. better competition... secondary league only guy, will always give you what he has, it's just not NFL caliber.
