2011 NFL Draft Prospects: Daniel Thomas Could Go As Early As Second Round

When Kansas State running back Daniel Thomas takes the field at Yankee Stadium in Thursday afternoon's Pinstripe Bowl, it will be the senior's last chance to showcase his abilities for NFL scouts against live competition. The 6'2" 228 lb native of Florida is highly regarded among many draft predictors, CBS Sports has Thomas going in the second round and among the best players available at running back, while SB Nation's Mocking the Draft predicts he will be a fifth round pickup at 140th overall. The former junior college standout ran for over 1200 yards in both seasons for the Wildcats, and should go over 1500 yards today if he has a productive game. In just two years at Kansas State, Thomas has risen to third on the career rushing list there, and has the second most yards in a single season for the Wildcats.

The Pinstripe Bowl in Yankee Stadium kicks off Thursday afternoon at 3:20 p.m. EST. Follow along in this StoryStream and visit Troy Nunes is an Absolute Magician and Bring on the Cats for team-centric coverage.
