Juanyeh Thomas, Safety, Georgia Tech

With depth still way up in the air for the Dallas Cowboys at safety and a lot of one year deals, Thomas has an opportunity to play sooner than later. With an ability to play special teams well, he also fills some of the loss of Cedrick Wilson. A smooth player with a lot of admirable traits with development.

Thomas is really smooth in his coverage and excels in zone. He can come downhill quickly and is always looking to take on the ball carrier and try to jar the ball loose. Plays special teams really well and can return and cover equally well. He has the size and frame to add a little mass, but currently can play down in the box.

Thomas is smooth, but overly quick, which will sometimes get him in trouble in man coverage. For all his physicality as a tackler, it doesn’t show up as well on receivers in coverage or coming down to take on a block. For his size and length he doesn’t have the best ball production and will allow catches due to leverage.
