Fresno State S Phillip Thomas draws NFL attention

Cary Edmondson-US PRESSWIRE

Fresno State safety Phillip Thomas has received some attention from NFL scouts in the midst of a stellar comeback season after suffering a devastating injury less than a year ago.

Fresno State Safety Phillip Thomas is beginning to draw the attention of scouts due to a breakout season, according to NFL.com.

Thomas leads the nation with seven interceptions, three of which have gone for touchdowns, and has the dynamic skills needed to make an impact at the next level. The 6 ft. 1, 215 lb. senior from Bakersfield, Calif. has garnered the attention of scouts due to his combination of toughness, physicality and athleticism. He missed most of 2011 after breaking his leg and dislocating his ankle, but has come back strong in 2012 and made a major difference for his team.

Finding a player that can defend the run and pass at the safety position is a rarity, and that's what has the scouts raving about Thomas in particular.

Fresno State is 5-3 overall and has a 3-1 record in the Mountain West Conference. The Bulldogs have not lost a home game in 2012, going 4-0 through eight contests, and they will next travel to Albuquerque, N.M. to take on the Lobos.
