Professional career

On December 27, 2017, it was announced that Thomas had accepted his invitation to play in the 2018 East-West Shrine Game.[3] He had a productive week of practice and separated himself as the top defensive end prospect playing in the East-West Shrine Game.[4] On January 20, 2017, Thomas made one tackle as part of the East who lost 14–10 to the West in the 2018 East-West Shrine Game.[5] His overall performance during the week garnered him an invitation to the 2018 Senior Bowl.[6] Thomas also impressed scouts and team representatives during practices for the Senior Bowl, but was unable to play in the game due to an unspecified injury.[7] Thomas attended the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis and completed the majority of drills, but opted to skip the bench press, short shuttle, and three-cone drill.
