Steelers Have Reportedly Had Georgia Tech DB Jemea Thomas In For A Pre Draft Visit
It appears as though the Pittsburgh Steelers recently had another pre draft visitor that went unreported until today.
On the Thursday edition of Steelers Live, Georgia Tech defensive back Jemea Thomas was listed as recently visiting with the Steelers.
At the 2014 NFL Scouting Combine, Thomas measured in at just over 5’9″ and weighed 192 pounds. He registered a 4.55 40-yard dash time while in Indianapolis and did 19 reps on the bench.
During his career at Georgia Tech, Thomas played every position in the defensive backfield over the course of 54 games. In 2013, Thomas led the team in solo tackles (73), total tackles (88) and pass break-ups (8). Thomas also returned eight kickoffs last season for 188 yards.
Due to his size, many project Thomas to be a safety at the NFL level and he figures to be a day-three selection next month in the 2014 NFL Draft.
