With a two-time BCS national champion in AJ McCarron, the SEC's all-time leading passer in Aaron Murray, and one of the NFL draft's late, hot names in Tom Savage still available, the Arizona Cardinals made Virginia Tech's Logan Thomas the first quarterback chosen on the draft's final day Saturday.
Thomas was taken No. 120 overall in the fourth round, giving coach Bruce Arians something he appreciates more than most: a cannon-strong arm that can deliver the football vertically like few others.
But he also inherits an unfinished project in the 6-foot-6, 248-pound Thomas, who was inconsistent at the college level and is lacking in accuracy, according to scouts.
Thomas' velocity was measured at 60 mph at the NFL Scouting Combine in February, the best such recording in the past seven combines.
LSU quarterback Zach Mettenberger, another quarterback Arians passed on for Thomas, was Mayock's best available player at the time of the pick.
