University at Buffalo CB Josh Thomas is making a pre-draft visit with the New York Jets today in New Jersey.
That according to the team’s official website. Considered by most draft forecasters as middle to late round pick, Thomas is seen as a prospect that can help in nickel packages according to ESPN draft analyst Mel Kiper who likes the depth at cornerback in the draft class this year.
“The depth at cornerback goes into the fourth or fifth round,” said Kiper. “There are some good nickel back guys like Justin Rogers out of Richmond as a fifth or sixth round nickel guy. Buster Skrine from Chattanooga is moving up after the way he tested at the combine and played at Chattanooga. Josh Thomas the kid at Buffalo is a guy that could play nickel as a fifth or sixth rounder. So cornerback has a lot of depth.”
Wisconsin OT Gabe Carimi, UCLA’s Akeem Ayers, Stanford DT Sione Fua, Louisville RB Bilal Powell and Texas CB Chykie Brown are also visiting with the Jets today.
