The Case for Logan Thomas
Who does he compare to?
The comparison that caused the initial wave of hype may be the best one: in many ways, Thomas resembles a second-string Cam Newton.
Thomas and Newton are eerily similar. Both have similar mechanics/footwork (good or bad), almost identical release points and arm strength, and excel on the same types of throws. Both players include their physicality as a big part of their running, as opposed to just trying to burn defenders with speed.
The biggest differences? Thomas’s upper body mechanics are slightly better, but overall Cam has a better deep ball.
