Draft Profile: Bio
Rara Thomas from Eufaula High School was rated a 3-star recruit by ESPN and handed a 3-star grade by 247 Sports. After high school, Thomas opted to join Mississippi State.

In 2021 as a freshman Thomas saw action in 10 games for the Bulldogs as he made 18 receptions for 252 yards for an average of 14.0 yards per reception, with 5 TDs, and an excellent QB rating when targeted of 136.1.

As a sophomore in 2022 he played 12 games and had 44 catches for 626 yards for an average of 14.2 yards per catch, with 7 TDs, and an excellent QB rating when targeted of 126.8.

After season's end Thomas transferred to Georgia where as a junior in 2023 he played 11 games and hauled in 23 catches for 383 yards for an average of 16.7 yards per catch, with one TD, and an excellent QB rating when targeted of 112.0.
Scouting Report: Strengths
  • Thomas combines good speed with his size, and Thomas accelerates off the line better than most big receivers.
  • Good effort and technique as a blocker for his size. Can beat the press with elusiveness or physical contact. Runs crisp routes with sharp cuts.
  • When used downfield, he shows the ball-tracking skills and hand-eye coordination to make the adjustment on underthrown balls and back-shoulder throws.
  • He’s extremely dangerous in the open field, showing the vision and creativity to run through entire defenses.
  • Shows good sense as a route runner and provides an enormous catch radius over the middle of the field. Thomas has soft hands and uses his frame effectively to shield defenders, making him a major threat in the red zone.
  • He’s also a violent runner with the ball in his hands. He’s very good working outside the numbers, showing excellent ball-tracking skills, and he does the little things well downfield, including leaving enough room on the sideline for his quarterback to drop in a throw.
  • Often used on deep routes, getting separation down the sideline or over the middle on crossing routes by extending his arms rather than pure speed.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • Thomas seems comfortable in traffic to the point where Thomas doesn’t make the effort to create separation.
  • Does not always use his hands to secure deep throws, allowing the ball into his pads and chest.
  • Thomas really isn’t a guy who will create a lot of separation.

*Percentile Ranking in Player's Position Group (NFL Combine Historical Data): This percentile reflects how a player's specific statistics rank in comparison to historical performances at the NFL Combine, specifically within their position group. A higher percentile indicates a better performance. For instance, being in the 90th percentile for a particular stat means the player outperformed 90% of their peers in that category.

*Similarity Percentage: This percentage is calculated based on a comprehensive analysis of various factors, including height, weight, 40-yard dash times, on-field performance statistics, and overall player rating. The analysis is conducted against our database of draft prospects from 2021 to 2023. This similarity score helps in evaluating how closely a current prospect aligns with past prospects. It is important to note, however, that this score reflects similarities based on college production and attributes, and does not account for eventual success or performance in the NFL.
