Combine Coach's Overall Comments:
 

Tom did well to communicate with his teammates and stay focused throughout the combine.  He was part of a team who gave up a lot of goals, and although the goals werenít always his fault, a good center back solves the problem and prevents goals.  For a big center back, he has to be better at defending in the box.  Dealing with service from wide areas and blocking more shots are two areas where he struggles at a higher level with better, faster, and strong opponents.  His passing ideas with the ball are good, but he has to improve the speed of his decisions and always be clean with his touches.  Tom fits the part of a center back well because he has good size, he can communicate, and he can think well.  To make it as a pro, he must get into an environment where the speed of play is fast and heís constantly challenged.  This is the only way for him to catch up and make it at a professional level.
