As I noted last night , Kansas State running back Daniel Thomas would not be working out for scouts during his school's Pro Day workout today.
Thomas is still struggling with the same hamstring problems that kept him out of the Senior Bowl and sidelined for the Scouting Combine in late February.
He has, however, announced a new date for his workout -- April 5 at the Kansas State facility. His workout is scheduled to begin at 2 pm CT.
Thomas, a junior college quarterback, has been spectacularly productive for the Wildcats, rushing for a combined 2,850 yards and scoring 30 touchdowns on the ground. He earned First Team All Big-12 honors after each of the past two seasons.
Despite his production, teams have concerns about the 6-0, 225 pound Thomas' pure speed. He has been estimated by scouts in the 4.55-4.65 range. A significantly faster or slower time could impact his draft grade more severely than most running backs considering that teams have some concerns with how well he'll transfer his natural runnning skills to the NFL. Thomas has played only two seasons at running back and was the obvious focus of Kansas State's offense.
Thomas is currently NFLDraftScout.com's No. 5 rated running back .
