ATLANTA (AP) Justin Thomas knows his chances are slim to play quarterback in the NFL, so the former Georgia Tech standout hopes to impress pro scouts with his versatility.
He got his first big chance Friday at Georgia Tech's pro day, running drills for NFL teams at receiver, cornerback, punt returners and kick returner. Thomas also wanted to show off his skills at quarterback, so several scouts got a close-up look at his release point, arm strength and accuracy.
"I'm competing for anything," he said. "I know the game. Being a quarterback you have to know every position on the field anyway, offense and defense. Just having that experience will help out a lot."
