Georgia Tech

#77 G Omoregie Uzzi, Sr – 6-3, 302 pounds, 5.26 in the 40-yard dash, 3rd-4th round potential.

(Pronounced O-More-Gay Ooze-E) Coming off a season where he was named first-team All-ACC, Uzzi did not take part in spring practice or team conditioning as he recovered an assortment of injuries he suffered during the ’11 season. The Georgia native became a starter in his redshirt-sophomore season in 2010 and earned second-team All-ACC honors. The 2012 season will be his third consecutive year starting at right guard where he’s shown very good toughness and nice mobility. He’s played in 36 games with 24 starts. Uzzi played his high school ball at Chamblee High School in Georgia.

Virginia Tech

#3 QB Logan Thomas, Redshirt Jr – 6-6, 260 pounds, 4.67 in the 40 yard dash, 1st-round potential.

Last year was his first season as the starting QB for the Hokies and he had folks in the mountains of Virginia making comparisons with Cam Newton. In 14 games he set a school record for single season offensive yards with 3,482 yards and accounted for 30 total touchdowns, 11 on rushes. Thomas threw for 3,013 yards and ran for 469 yards. He earned second-team All-ACC honors. He arrived on campus as a TE/WR, but it didn’t take long for the Tech coaches to move him to QB. He took a redshirt in 2009, and was the backup to Tyrod Taylor in 2010. There’s no question he would be better off spending the next two years learning his craft while directing Tech, but if shows improvement over his play of last season, it will be tough to keep him down on the farm. He played at Brookville High School in Lynchburg, Virginia. Thomas is 21 years old.
