Mississippi State University had its Pro Day on Wednesday, and the player drawing the most attention at the workout didn't even play for the school. DT Walter Thomas received permission from MSU to work out for NFL scouts even though he played for Northwest Mississippi Community College.
The massive man is reportedly in the 6'4" 370lbs range and looks to be an ideal 3-4 nose guard at the next level.
Thomas started getting a lot of buzz after his performance at the Texas vs. The Nation All-Star Challenge where he appeared absolutely dominant at times. If he can drop a few pounds and get into the 350 range, his endurance would likely increase and he could be a perfect backup for Jamal Williams in the Chargers 34 defense.
While he is raw in terms of technique (He only played 2 games at Oklahoma State, where he was heavily recruited, before transferring to a junior college because of grades), the Chargers are looking to add some depth along the line and Thomas would be a great day two pick.
