VT vs. UCLA: Can Logan Thomas Save His NFL Draft Stock in Sun Bowl?

At 6'6" and 254 pounds, Virginia Tech quarterback Logan Thomas looks like the ideal NFL QB. Thomas, who came to Blacksburg as a tight end, is extremely athletic for a man of his size and possesses one of the strongest arms in all of college football.

No doubt, Thomas should be the No. 1 overall pick in the NFL draft, right?

Not so fast.

After an outstanding sophomore season in 2011—his first year as a starter—Thomas has been one of the most inconsistent players in college football the past two years.

However, on Tuesday, Thomas and the Hokies will play No. 17 UCLA in the Sun Bowl. The Bruins, led by outside linebacker Anthony Barr, have an impressive defensive front, and a solid performance by Thomas against UCLA could revive his declining draft stock. 

In 2011, Thomas completed 60 percent of his passes for 3,013 yards and tossed 19 touchdowns to go along with 10 interceptions. He led the Hokies to an appearance in the ACC title game—something Hokies fans were accustomed to—and an overtime loss to Michigan in the Sugar Bowl.

The arrow was definitely pointing up for Thomas until a 2012 campaign that saw the Hokies have their worst season in 20 years. Thomas completed just 51 percent of his passes, and his interception total rose to 16. 

Many VT fans were optimistic that 2012 was an aberration and Thomas would rebound this season. It didn't happen. Much like last year, Thomas had some big moments where he showed tremendous potential, while there were other games—like Alabama and Duke—where he looked like he didn't belong on the field. 

And for the first time since the inception of the ACC Championship Game in 2005, the Hokies haven't won the Coastal Division once in a two-year period.

No, everything isn't Thomas' fault. The offensive line has been bad. The Hokies have been unable to replace David Wilson the past two years, and losing the top two receivers in school history, Jarrett Boykin and Danny Coale, after 2011, hurt Thomas tremendously. 

Also, much more is asked of Thomas than most QBs. He led the team in rushing last season and was second on the team this year. 

But through it all, many draft observers have felt Thomas will go much higher than his on-field performance would dictate. In fact, there is a definite split in the scouting community on Thomas.

Legendary Dallas Cowboys personnel guru Gil Brandt, who now works for NFL.com, believes Thomas needs to change positions at the next level.

However, the folks at Optimum Scouting believe Thomas is more of a victim of the youth and lack of talent around him.

With his size, arm, athletic ability and experience, Thomas will find at least one NFL team, or perhaps more than one, that will take a chance on his vast physical talent. A team with a good, solid veteran QB can afford to put Thomas on the bench for a few years and allow him to develop.

A strong performance on New Year's Eve would go a long way in improving Thomas' stock. He is facing a stout defense in a game facing little opposition on other networks. Scouts from across the country will be watching this game intently.

If the Hokies are to have a chance at beating the Bruins, they need a strong performance by their senior signal-caller. 

With Trey Edmunds out for Tech, J.C. Coleman will get the bulk of the workload in the Hokies running game. Thomas will be heavily featured, too.

Thomas must get the ball out of his hands quickly, and when he gets chances to make a play downfield, he must connect. Remember, Thomas is set to play in the Senior Bowl next month, so a strong performance in his team's bowl game followed by a strong week in Mobile could do wonders for Thomas.

Remember how well it worked out for EJ Manuel last year?

Manuel was viewed as no more than a third-round pick after the 2012 season. Then he had a strong Orange Bowl performance followed by a good week of practice at the Senior Bowl in front of NFL coaches. Manuel went on to become the first QB selected in the 2013 NFL draft.

Thomas will not be the first QB taken in the 2014 draft. He could, however, get himself into the first-round discussion, and that will begin in earnest this Tuesday when the Hokies face UCLA in the Sun Bowl.

Texas Football: 5 Best Moments of 2013

The Texas Longhorns' 2013 season will come to an end on Monday in the Alamo Bowl. No matter how it ends against Oregon, there were plenty of moments where Texas looked like the program we thought it would be.

While losses to Oklahoma State and Baylor will define this year's 'Horns, they do not lessen the excitement that came with steamrolling Oklahoma and Texas Tech. 

There was Jackson Jeffcoat's transcendent senior year, and Johnathan Gray's pre-injury breakout. Even fullback Alex de la Torre gave this team a jolt this season

Baylor Head Coach Art Briles Discusses Texas Football Coaching Rumors

After current Baylor coach Art Briles was linked to the Texas football head coaching job, per Kirk Bohls and Brian Davis of The Austin American-Statesman (subscription required), the Bears coach discussed the Horns job while in Arizona preparing for the 2014 Tostito's Fiesta Bowl.

On Dec. 29, Craig Smoak of ESPN Central Texas asked Briles about The Statesman's report that he would take Texas job if offered. Smoak reported his findings on Twitter, which can be found via Storify.

Anybody can say anything, you know. I learned a long time ago, I think it was believe none of what you hear and half of what you read. And I know that our total focus is on beating UCF and that's the way it's going to be. I mean if I did anything that was not on that would be detrimental to our football team and our university and I'm never going to do that. I'm privileged and honored to be the head coach at Baylor University, I can promise you that.

Davis addressed the Briles quote via Twitter.

Certainly, Briles is focused on the upcoming matchup with Central Florida, but he did not deny any interest or want in the Texas job. A definitive statement would have been nice for the sanity of both the Baylor and the Texas faithful.

Briles has taken Baylor from the bottom of the Big 12 to the top with a 2013 conference championship and the school's first-ever BCS berth. He's gotten many top recruits, including Heisman winner Robert Griffin III and Rivals.com 5-star recruit Lache Seastrunk, to come to Waco. What kind of damage could he do in Austin if he took over Mack Brown's former job?

The Longhorns take on the Oregon Ducks in the 2013 Valero Alamo Bowl on Dec. 30. The Bears play their bowl game on Jan. 1, 2014. Possibly, rumors will be flying over the next weeks, but a decision on the Texas job should be made soon.

Michigan Football: Super Early Preview of the 2014 QB Battle

Saturday didn’t mark the arrival of Super Shane.

No, it was simply the debut of a true freshman who was thrown into the fire, expected to give Michigan some sort of shot at winning the Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl in the absence of starter Devin Gardner.

Really, the Wolverines’ 31-14 loss to Kansas State marked the beginning of the Serviceable Shane Morris era—at least it should have. The former 247Sports 4-star pro-styler showed “something,” despite the pathetic effort put forth by the rest of his teammates.

Moving forward with Morris, along with Wilton Speight, in 2014 seems likely.

Completing 24-of-38 passes for 196 yards isn’t a trophy-worthy accomplishment, but considering the circumstances, Morris certainly deserves credit for doing that “something” while others did nothing.

Having to string together a little magic while the No. 1 watches, crutch-bound, from the sidelines isn’t an easy job—even against a 7-5 Wildcats team that opened 2013 with a loss to FCS North Dakota State.

Morris didn’t wow the masses. He showed mobility with a 40-yard run in the fourth quarter, and he probably should have connected on at least three more passes—drops by receivers were to blame for falling short of 28-for-38 for 250 yards and a touchdown.

He looked calm. He only threw one interception, and that was in the third to Dante Barnett. Michigan was already well behind.

Dare it be said that he played a helluva game for a first-time starter?

Indeed.

And that’s why a no-holds barred race for No. 1 in 2014 should be anticipated.

 

Morris Makes Most of Opportunity

If you were in the “expect the world from Shane” camp, you were disappointed Saturday night. If you were in the “show me something” camp, you were likely delighted.

Morris went 3-for-5 (44 yards) during his first drive, including 13- and 24-yard completions which were heavily aided by the YAC. But he was OK. He didn’t get mauled, and considering Gardner’s past—he was sacked 34 times, third-most in the FBS—seeing an upright Morris was enough to satisfy.

So the Wolverines lost. They were severely underprepared. According to Nick Baumgardner of MLive.com, Michigan defensive end Frank Clark said the following about the lack of continuity as his team was suffocated by K-State:

I think a lot of guys lost the will to play as a family. That's one thing you can't do in football. In football, you've got to stick in there and stay together as a family.

That's something we've got to work on in the offseason.

A 63 percent completion rate and clean uniform shouldn’t have been results of a “family” implosion. Morris’ effort was one of few honest and true goes (Clark included). 

According to Baumgardner, James Ross said the defense wasn't "totally into it." That makes sense. The Wildcats went aerial in the first and never looked back. How was Morris supposed to spark a rally when his defense kept giving away points? 

Look, there is no clear star on the roster. For those who whiffed on Gardner, don't feel ashamed. Some guys simply don't live up to perceived potential. Morris has the characteristics, at the very least, of a traditional, true-blue pocket passer. 

If Michigan can't do it with him, the only other in-house option is Speight.

In an effort to make things clear, Michigan should reclassify Gardner as a wideout. Far from a potential in-the-shadows Heisman dark horse and possible Big Ten MVP, Gardner played like a quarterback who had just five starts and benefited from a tide of good fortunes late in 2012.

 

Speight's Arrival

He's another Under Armour All-American, just like his predecessor. 

But, at 6'6" and 220 pounds, he's slightly bigger than Morris. There will be compromise in this equation. Morris, arguably, has the better arm. But Speight's ball developed during his senior year at Richmond Collegiate (Va.). 

Speight is supposed to enroll early, so the spring game could be quite interesting. Russell Bellomy should be back to full health, so that makes four in the mix if Gardner's included. At the very least, three pocket passers should compete for the top job (if the roster stays as-is). 

Don't let the 3-star ranking fool you. Speight was recruited by Alabama and Auburn, two schools which have flourished with similar passers. His spiral isn't as tight as Morris, and his velocity isn't up there yet—but he's accurate, patient and very, very tall. 

Vision shouldn't be an issue, nor should his intentions. During an interview with Tim Sullivan of TheWolverine.com (subscription required to view), Speight said he's prepared to enter Ann Arbor and was quite comfortable during visits.

Michigan doesn't [host] do it as much with flash as some of the other schools, but they make it meaningful and make sure we enjoy ourselves. I think - I've known this since the day I committed, and a lot of the guys have - it basically solidified all the thoughts that we definitely made the right choice in committing to Michigan. It's a very special place and we were reminded of that this weekend

 

Possible 2014 QB Crop

Assuming everyone stays put, the following table illustrates Michigan's ball throwers. With the exception of Bellomy, the pool of contestants for starter shouldn't include a guy with an asterisk by his name.

Alabama Football: 5 Best Moments of 2013

Similar to the majority of Nick Saban’s tenure at Alabama, 2013 was a year in which the Crimson Tide dominated the college football landscape.

The year began with Alabama’s 42-14 dismantling of Notre Dame in the BCS title game. It ended with the team falling just short of having an opportunity to play for its second consecutive SEC title and a chance at a third straight crystal football.

Still, there were plenty of moments that gave Tide fans reason to celebrate in 2013.

In 2013, those seniors graduated, and the Aggies defense struggled. The 2013 team featured a lot of youth as head coach Kevin Sumlin and his staff have focused on stocking the roster with talent, positioning the Aggies for a bright future in the SEC.

LSU Football: 5 Best Moments of 2013

With a season that featured a 3,000-yard passer, 1,000-yard rusher and two 1,000-yard receivers, it shouldn't be all that shocking that this group of Tigers was exciting to watch.

While the season may not have produced the win-loss record LSU fans were hoping for, it still provided remarkable plays, memorable performances and something we've never seen before in Death Valley.

Judging off of pure amazement, athleticism and rarity, these were the best moments of the 2013 season.
