Draft Scouting Report

Draft Scouting Report:

Rating: 65.17 (Role player)

Pro Comparison: Zach Moss


Tavion Thomas is a huge, boulder of a back who fits the classic Utah mold. He has plus vision in a zone-heavy scheme that sprinkled in some lead-blocking help. He's legitimately wide-bodied with a frame that effortlessly delivers pops on defenders; any arm-tackle attemtps will be scoffed at. He's a decently stiff runner with only a rare lateral move to free himself, but overall he's a North-South efficient runner. The vast majority of the missed tackles he forced come by way of steamrolling through the opponent. He has very low-level speed in the open field and minimal receiving capabilities, making him a true throwback hammer of a runner.


  • Great vision in a zone-blocking scheme
  • Reads blocks well in power scheme, too
  • Serious capabilities to run over the opposition
  • Doesn't wear down as the game progresses


  • Very slow by NFL RB standards
  • Almost seeks out contact, which will shorten his professional shelf life

Combine Results:

  • 40-Yard Dash: 4.74 seconds
  • Vertical: 30 inches
  • Broad Jump: 10 feet, 9 inches
