Thomas had two very good seasons in his sophomore and junior years. In 2011, he completed 62.2 percent of pass attempts, going 211-for-339 with 2,761 passing yards and 33 touchdowns against just seven interceptions. He ranked in the top 10 in the Pac-12 in Passing Yards Per Attempt, Pass Completions, Pass Attempts, Pass Completion Percentage, Passing Yards and Passing Touchdowns. Of course, he is also fresh off of leading his team to a win in the 2012 Rose Bowl.

Thomas is just one of many multitalented quarterbacks to enter the 2012 draft, joining fellow Heisman Trophy winner Robert Griffin III and fellow Pac-12 quarterbacks Andrew Luck and Brock Osweiler, among others.
