Hokies QB Logan Thomas working with Johnny Manziel


MOBILE, Ala. -- Logan Thomas is essentially on loan from quarterback guru George Whitfield Jr. for the Reese's Senior Bowl this week.

The 6-foot-6, 255-pound prospect from Virginia Tech has spent the last two weeks in San Diego, working out the second of those two weeks under Whitfield's tutelage, along with Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel.

"It's a lot of fun with Johnny. We push each other to the limit. Neither of us want to be last, we both want to be first, and that's what makes it fun and makes us better," Thomas said.

When the Senior Bowl concludes, Thomas will be headed back to the West Coast to continue refining his technique. He was off target with a number of throws at the North practice Tuesday, and scouts have concerns about his accuracy and pocket awareness.

"We just sent my film to San Diego so we can break it all down, see what I was doing wrong, see what I saw, so we can correct it," Thomas said. "A lot of it is just being technically sound. You can never do enough for your mechanics, getting them completely right. For me, it's about my lead leg. That will help me be more accurate."

Thomas said a head injury kept him out of action his first week under Whitfield, but he was happy to get away from January weather in Virginia, regardless.

"I've been there two weeks, but only worked out for one week, because I was coming off a concussion and had to get re-released (medically). But it's been a great time, getting in one week of work. My body feels great," Thomas added. "Virginia is snowing right now and its probably 80 out there (in San Diego). I love my home area, but it's very nice to be warm."

Thomas said Louisville quarterback Teddy Bridgewater, potentially the No. 1 overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, will be working with he and Manziel under Whitfield, as well.
