Phillip Thomas, S, Fresno State
Height: 6-0. Weight: 210. Arm: 30 1/4. Hand: 9 1/4. Projected 40 Time: 4.60. Projected Round (2013): 2-4. 1/31/13: Thomas led the nation with eight interceptions in 2012. He had three picks against Colorado, returning two of them for touchdowns. Thomas also recorded 82 tackles, 12 tackles for a loss, four passes broken up and four forced fumbles. He has really put himself on the map with his big plays and is making up for lost time.
Thomas played well at the Senior Bowl, which helped his draft standing. He took a medical redshirt in 2011 and missed the entire season after breaking a leg and dislocating an ankle three days before the first game. Thomas had 64 tackles and three interceptions in 2010.
Robbie Rouse, RB, Fresno State
Height: 5-5. Weight: 186. Arm: 27 1/2. Hand: 9 1/8. Projected 40 Time: 4.53. Projected Round (2013): 5-7. 2/16/13: Rouse averaged 5.3 yards per carry and ran for 1,490 yards with 12 touchdowns as a senior. He also caught 63 passes for 435 yards and two touchdowns. Rouse ran for 1,549 yards and 13 touchdowns in 2011. He is a good runner and receiver, but struggled as a blocker in blitz protection at the Senior Bowl. Rouse is thickly built, but is still extremely undersized for the NFL.
If Im the Bucs I'd take a WR like John Ross over Conley. They need another WR to put with Evans because I think Jackson might be gone next year. Somebody like Ross would be good with Evans. With th way their D-line played against Seattle & with the way Spence is looking better they might not go D-line right away now. It might be a WR 1st round now & then they go D, OL & everything else after that.
