2020 NFL Draft Scouting Report
Andrew Thomas, OT, Georgia

Career Snapshot
Three-year starter who earned First Team All-America honors as a junior in 2019. Started at left tackle his final two seasons at Georgia. Started all 15 games at right tackle as a true freshman in 2017.

Positives
Natural left tackle prospect with big upside. Patient, keeps his head on a swivel and works well with linemates. Bends his knees, blocks with leverage and keeps his feet moving. Displays terrific lateral range to slide off the edge, nicely redirects to defenders and takes opponents from the action. Quick to recognize stunts and blitzes by opponents and agile enough to pick them up.

Fires off the snap into run blocks and has the strength to turn defenders from the action. Fires out to the second level, easily moves on his feet and effectively takes linebackers from the play on the move. Effective with his hands, correctly places them into defenders and rides opponents from their angles of attack.

Negatives
Tends to gather into blocks. Does not always look confident in his base. Must make better use of angles. Stands to improve his balance.

Analysis
Thomas possesses rare ability and upside and is a terrific left tackle prospect who shows skill both as a run blocker and in pass protection. He comes with great upside and should be an immediate starter at the next level, and he will only get better as he improves and polishes his game.
