Cardinals draft athletic quarterback Logan Thomas

Shayon Green, Logan Thomas AP

The first quarterback off the board on Day Three of the NFL draft is Logan Thomas of Virginia Tech.

Thomas went to the Cardinals in the fourth round, with the 120th overall pick.

In Arizona, Thomas will do exactly what he needs to do: Get some time to sit behind Carson Palmer while he learns to play the quarterback position at the professional level. Thomas has a strong arm, good size and is a phenomenal athlete, but he has major problems with accuracy and decision making, and he’s not ready to start in the NFL right now. In fact, there’s even been talk that he should move to tight end in the NFL because he struggles so much as a passer.

In the fourth round, however, he is a low-risk, high-reward player for the Cardinals. Coach Bruce Arians will get a chance to mold him into a quarterback of the future, while he begins his career as the backup to Palmer.

    if hes that bad of a passer in college , then he’ll never make it in the NFL

    This kid can play ball. He’ll sit for a year maybe two. Then he’ll get his shot in the big leagues. Nice pick up AZ.

    Arians wants his own version of Big Ben.. Pittsburgh-West continues…

    I’m a huge VT fan and I initially saw Logan as a 1st round pick until he started stinking up the joint. I’m glad someone took a chance on him, he has the size and arm for the NFL. Good luck to him and Go Hokies!

    Just proves the Cards still don’t know how to draft a QB. Given his size Maybe they can turn him into a blocking tight end or a defensive linebacker.

    Wasted pick.

    This is Arians ego plain and simple. Can’t teach true accuracy. He’s no Ben.

    Sounds like Arians got his John Skelton. I was a Skelton fan who believed he could have been developed into a great player, he had a rocket arm, size and had some good games. However, he was caught up in a political storm and was the excuse the front office used to kick a good coach to the curb. Now BA will get the chance to show fans he can transform straw into gold!

    This guy is awful. But it’s funny that he got picked before McCarron who claimed that he was going to be a “first round pick”. LOL

    2 years as Palmer’s apprentice will do a world of good for him ! Just don’t end up as spoiled as he is.

    John Skelton 2.0. Wasted pick.

  14. imthedudedude says: May 10, 2014 3:37 PM

    Better than Bridgewater

    All of you that say that Logan stunk up the joint or is awful apparently never saw him play. When Tech had Coale and Boykin as receivers and Wilson at running back he was a totally different QB. In 2012 and 2013 he had to be the offense…….running on one play, taking 50 hits a game, and still being expected to pass with accuracy.

    LOL they drafted a guy with bad decision making and sat him behind… Carson Palmer? Palmer throws at least 10 picks a year that rookies should know better than to throw. Definitely a “Don’t be like THAT guy” move

    i like this pick. Thomas has potential and i have seen some comparisons that i HAVE to disagree with. Skelton, no, nice try. the big difference with Skelton and Thomas is mobility. Thomas is a big kid with a strong arm and can move around. think of a poor man’s Cam Newton. i think sitting behind and getting coached up could do wonders for him and maybe in time he can be the QB for them and if he develops like i think he can, he will be at least good
