A while back I said that I would highlight some hidden gems for the Panthers to look at. Who knew I would get to busy to do so, and for that, I'm sorry. So let's get to it.
Shamarko Thomas 5'10, 210, Syracuse, SR.
Thomas plays the game with reckless abandonment and loves to throw his body around on the field, seeking big hits against the ballcarrier. Thomas plays too aggressive and too often bites on fakes, finding himself constantly playing from behind. A willing and tough run defender, he has a future at the next level if he can stay loose and disciplined with his coverage responsibilities. --Dane Brugler
My thoughts. Big hitter and a tackling machine. Need help in coverage and plays to wild sometimes. A 4th or 5th round pick would be great.
