Earl Thomas

The Texas standout is the Legion of Boom’s cleanup man; his wide range and fast twitch reflexes allow Seattle’s corners to play as physical as they do.

Without Thomas manning the goal-posts, the Seahawks would not be as effective in producing shutout wins.

All keepers in futbol today must be aggressive, as well as natural leaders; Thomas has both of these traits which make him a perfect fit to strap on gloves with a bit more padding than he is used to.
