Arizona Cardinals officially sign QB Logan Thomas

Former Virginia Tech quarterback Logan Thomas represented one of the great debates of the 2014 NFL Draft process, and after being selected with the 120th overall pick, Thomas officially signed a contract with the Arizona Cardinals on Wednesday.

At 6-foot-6 and with big-time arm strength, Thomas would seemingly be a prototypical NFL quarterback prospect, but his wild inconsistency throughout his time at Virginia Tech sent scouts into a spiral about his play. Still, the Cardinals thought highly enough of Thomas to invest a fourth-round selection in him, and with no other developmental option on the current roster, Arizona could be placing significant resources in Thomas in order for him to succeed.

Many have speculated that he could become a tight end if he fails as a quarterback (Thomas ran a 4.61 in the 40-yard dash, for reference), but he’s been awarded with the customary 4-year contract to give it a go with the Cardinals. The biggest issue will be accuracy, but perhaps with a full-time workload in the pros, that is something that can be corrected.
