Five Best NFL Prospects on the 2023 Texas A&M Football Team: WR Noah Thomas
This may be a slightly controversial take, but I really think Thomas is what every NFL team is looking for in a wide receiver. Though only a three-star prospect and somewhat overlooked given the fact that he was coming in as part of a star-studded class, Thomas can do it all. He’s got speed, height, strength, and great hands.
We got to see a bit of what Noah can do in the first game versus New Mexico before he went down with injury against Miami. He was battling through that for the rest of the season, and was a bit more limited, but he still managed to notch the second-most touchdown catches on the entire team.
Thomas, if properly utilized, can be as lethal a red zone weapon as any receiver in the country. Not only does he tower over most corners at 6’6”, but he doesn’t rely on that height alone for the catch—he fights for the ball, in other words, embarrassing those who try to guard him in that area of the field.
Thomas may not end up going as high in the draft as a guy like Mike Evans did, but I see a lot of comparisons there. Thomas is slightly taller, a fair bit skinnier, and faster than Evans, but they both fit the X receiver archetype.
