When Thomas isn’t running the ball, he can stand in the pocket and throw the ball down the field with great accuracy. In 2013, 5 games Thomas played in, he went 9 for 17 for 131 yards, 1 touchdown and 2 INT. Even though Tech’s offense is geared for the run, don’t get fooled by Thomas’ arm, because his arm strength is very misleading.

Jordan is a very good passer. He delivers the ball while in the pocket and delivers it with ease, power and very good accuracy. His strength is above average as he can sit in the pocket and hit a target deep down the field without much effort and can also hit the short, over the middle target.

He doesn’t quite have the quick release that Thomas does, but overall Jordan’s arm is bigger and capable of getting the ball downfield for deeper routes.
