Bob Sanders…Earl Thomas… Sean Taylor… Shamarko Thomas?

Syracuse safety Shamarko Thomas joined the ComRadio NFL Draft Show and said he compares himself to the likes of Sanders, Thomas and Taylor. As a smaller safety in terms of height, Thomas is right in the mold of Sanders and Thomas.

Thomas describes that the hardest part of the draft process is all of the travel and finding time to work out and stay in shape.

He is a very talented safety but finds himself in the middle of a deep draft class at the position but Thomas can say something that the other safeties can’t – that he covered USC’s Robert Woods and West Virginia’s Tavon Austin one-on-one.

Thomas also played at Syracuse with one of the top quarterbacks prospects in the draft, Ryan Nassib and says that Nassib is the “smartest quarterback in the draft.”

When Thomas’ phone rings on draft weekend, it will be a “dream come true.”

“The things I promised my mom I would do, I got it done,” Thomas said.
