NFL Draft 2012: Darron Thomas Compares Himself To Cam Newton

Former Oregon Ducks quarterback Darron Thomas has signed with mega-agent Drew Rosenhaus, and according to Thomas, sees himself in the light of the Carolina Panthers Cam Newton as to what he can bring to an NFL football team:

Here's what Thomas told ESPN's Joe Schad about what he brings to the table:

"Leadership, [a] winning attitude, hard work and I can make big plays. I saw what Cam Newton did this year. He took his raw talent and made a spark. I can do those things, too."

Newton and Thomas do have some similarities in playing style, and could prove to be a valued asset in the NFL. Thomas stayed true to his humble nature though, telling Schad "hopefully I get drafted...and keep working hard," and that he could be taken "all over the board." Nevertheless, Thomas was sad to leave his teammates:

"I feel like I'm leaving my brothers but I leave them in good hands, I loved all my times there."

The 6-foot-3, 215-pound Thomas threw for 2,761 yards, setting a new school-record with 33 touchdowns in 2011. He also ran for three touchdowns., while only throwing seven interceptions.
