The Arizona Cardinals drafted quarterback Logan Thomas in the fourth round of this year's NFL Draft with an eye towards tomorrow.

The Virginia Tech product may be the Red Birds' starting signal-caller of the future. Time will tell.

Thomas has been impressive so far during team OTA's and rookie minicamp. The 6-foot-6 quarterback has been far from perfect but it's not hard to see that Thomas is very talented.

He'll have good days and bad. It's all part of the learning process as stated by Arizona head coach Bruce Arians via

“When he knows what he’s doing and the guys around him know what they’re doing, he’s pretty good,” Arians said. “Biggest thing for him is try not to, as you’re dropping back, decide where you’ll throw. Get back there. It takes him too long to get back, and then he’s ready to throw but his feet aren’t there yet. Get back, move your feet. He has all the talent in the world. It’s processing information and getting the ball out of his hand. And that’s experience."

Thomas took about 25 percent of the snaps during Cardinals OTA's and the vast majority of the snaps during rookie minicamp. Being able to take so many snaps was a huge benefit to Thomas. You can never get enough reps.

"It means a ton because you get to see multiple different things that you don't normally get to see, " Thomas said via "I get two snaps every five reps (during OTA's) and here (at rookie minicamp) I get every one of them, so it's very nice to be able to have that chance to see things."
