NFL Draft 2016: Mike Thomas added weight this offseason

Ohio State wide receiver Mike Thomas will surely hear his name called in next month’s NFL Draft after running a 4.57 40-yard dash and weighing in at 212 pounds at the NFL Scouting Combine, but a picture posted to Thomas’ Twitter suggests that the former Buckeyes is preparing for the pros in another way.

In the picture, it can be seen that Thomas has added five pounds to his 6-foot-3 frame.

Keep in mind that Thomas probably does not need to add weight in order to make himself a better player. After all, he did post 113 catches for 1,602 yards and four touchdowns in three years at Ohio State, so the young man can definitely play.

That said, though Thomas hasn’t confirmed it, it sounds like he’s just adding some muscle so he can have increased strength ahead of the draft. So long as his speed isn’t adversely affected, his stock shouldn’t change whatsoever.
