This guy has caught my eye in Jets camp Dan Leberfeld

New Jersey – Defensive end Lawrence Thomas doesn’t get a lot of reps in practice, but when he does get on the field, he makes things happen.

The rookie free agent out of Michigan State is an athletic, explosive defensive lineman with quick feet.

Thomas was a big-time high school player who all the major programs wanted. Coming of Detroit, he was ranked as one of the top 30 recruits in the country by several services – PrepStar (No. 15), MaxPreps (No. 21), Sporting News (No. 26), 247Sports.com (No. 28) and SuperPrep (No. 30).

Due to injuries and being moved around a lot, he had a good, not great college career.

But watching him in Jets practice, his significant talent is obvious, and perhaps under the tutelage of the Jets’ outstanding defensive line coach Pepper Johnson, Thomas can finally realize his enormous potential.
