3. DE Xavier Thomas
Xavier Thomas had a strange 2019, to say the least.
He was a preseason All-American, but never reached that level on the field. He struggled with injuries and wasn’t able to shine quite as much in that 3-4 base that the Tigers ran.
This season, though, you can expect a full re-emergence from No. 3.
Thomas is going to show that explosive ability like never before and he’s going to be one of the nation’s sack leaders.
The result? He’ll be one of the top edge-rushers taken in the 2021 NFL Draft once he declares.
