Notes: One of the best pure shooters in this year's draft, Jobey Thomas leaves Charlotte as the school's and Conference USA's all-time leader in career 3-pointers with 346. A first-team all-Conference USA selection as a senior last year, Thomas broke his own league record for 3-pointers made in C-USA games with 60 in 16 games (3.75 per game). As a senior, Thomas led C-USA in 3-pointers made for the third straight season and ranked second in 3-point percentage with a career-best .433 in 2001-02.

Thomas is Charlotte's seventh all-time leader in points with 1,737 and ranks fifth on C-USA scoring list. Thomas is just Charlotte's second player to reach 300 threes in a career and the second to reach 100 threes in a season (Henry Williams, '92 is the other on both counts).

Thomas also led C-USA in free-throw shooting for second straight year, hitting nearly 90 percent of his attempts. Thomas ranks second all-time in Charlotte's free-throw accuracy with a career 85.4 percent. He broke school career records for games played (130) and consecutive games played (130), which is to say he did not missed a game in his four-year career. Led the 49ers in scoring as a senior at 18.5 ppg.

Positives: Thomas was the best shooter on Charlotte during the season and hes one of the best shooters in a weak shooters draft. Thomas can get his shot off in traffic and put the ball on the court and hit the pull-up jumper. He's also good on the break for the transition jumper.

Negatives: Thomas needs to diversify his game. He needs to prove he can be a better defender. He has to show he's worth the look as a second-round pick. All of this will likely come out in workouts.

Summary: Thomas has a good shot to be in the second round. He's a good enough shooter that scouts will want him in camp for a look. Thomas is a player who could do wonders for his career during the summer league.
