    If he is there in the 4th should we take a flyer on him as a developmental QB to groom for 2 or so years? Do we have the coaches to develop him? Is his potential worth the risk? I believe we really should have an eye open this draft for a potential future starting QB and this guy is the is one that should be considered IMO.

    If Thomas was the exact same player but 6'2 would anyone give a darn about him? The extra few inches he has over the other QB's is never going to help him get the ball where it needs to go. He has very little football iq and very little accuracy.

    So to answer your question, no Longan Thomas is not worth a 4th round pick.

    The highest I'd consider drafting him is in the seventh.

    I think Logan Thomas is Josh Freeman 2.0 at best, yeah he has the measurables to fall in love with but I don't think he's worth a 4th round pick.

    Drafting a QB in this draft would be a waste of time/pick and should be made top priority in next years draft IMO. We hope like hell Romo can bounce back and be productive again next year.

    He doesn't seem like a real natural passer. I have him on my wish list, but as a 7th round flier at TE. He was highly rated coming out of high school. From his bio...

    Freeman was a much better passer in college than Thomas ever was. Not a good comparison.

    VaTech doesn't develop good NFL QB prospects. No sense wasting a draft pick on Thomas. I would only take Thomas as a UDFA and I really wouldn't do that because there are better options out there.

    No thank you... His inaccuracy is a MAJOR issue!

    You can go back and look--this kid was my pet cat going into this season. I expected big things from him. He looked absolutely horrible all season and even worse in the senior bowl. I wouldn't consider him even as Mr. Irrelevant.

    I'd take Tajh Boyd before I take Logan Thomas......and, I wouldn't even look at Boyd until Round 5 or later.

    I think he has the tools but anybody who keeps up with Virginia Tech football knows that their offensive schemes haven't exactly ever been known to produce NFL talent. They basically ran a weak version of the Tebow offense.

    If by having the tool you mean he has arms and legs, then yes. He can't read a defense. He is horribly inaccurate. He can't even effectively make the decision of when to run or not. He is a superior athlete so I can see him making a roster, but I don't think he ever plays QB.

    7th round pick...and as a Tight End. Talented football player but horribly inaccurate.

    Clearly by name and avatar i'm a Virginia Tech fan. I have had season tickets for the last 7 seasons and have watched every game of Logan's career. As a sophomore when he actually had talent around him he was very productive and looked great. But the last two seasons have been extremely frustrating. I don't put all the blame on him because it has been the worst running game VT has seen in ages and the WR talent has left a lot to be desired. But he is also very inconsistent and his accuracy at times make you want to scream.

    But there is no question he has an extremely strong arm that can make all of the throws if somebody can fix his mechanics. And the guy is a gamer with a lot of heart, he put everything he had out on the field every game. The important thing to remember when it comes to Logan is every other college who recruited him wanted him as a tight end and he didn't even want to play QB. The coaches approached him about playing QB after missing out on a few QB recruits. Considering how raw he is at the position you have to expect some of the issues. Especially when the QB coach at VT has been horrendous. Before last season Beamer cleaned out a few of his coaches and brought in Scott Loefler who was able to work with him. But with installing a new offense he wasn't able to completely focus on fixing all of his mechanical flaws.

    With all that said, would I take him in the 4th? No, but as the draft goes on I would take the risk that goes with him. Because if he does develop and take that step forward he could be one heck of a steal with all of his god given athletic talent. Could also fall flat on his face, but what do you expect with a 5th, 6th, or 7th rounder?

    Not gonna happen. Way better options anyways. Besides, I guarantee you that a team will fall in love with him at the combine when he shows off the cannon and take him in the 3rd or early 4th. Happens every year with numbers guys at the combine.

    A very productive and looking great sophomore season still only netted 19 TDs with 10 Ints and just over 3000 yards. That is hardly lighting it up compared to the other good college QBs. I don't think you use a draft pick even a 7th rounder on a guy that needs his mechanics fixed. That kind of stuff takes time to correct if can even be corrected at all. I'd be more willing to use a very late pick on him and move him to tight end than to waste a pick on him as a QB.

    I would extend him an invite to camp. The dude is just an athlete at this point. I would try my damnedest to get him to play TE though. Hell of an athlete.
