Joe Thomas (American Football) - Professional Career - 2007 NFL Draft

2007 NFL Draft

The Cleveland Browns drafted Thomas in the first round of the 2007 NFL Draft (3rd overall) to fill a dire need on the team's offensive line. The Thomas pick ended much speculation that the Browns would choose other players including former Notre Dame QB Brady Quinn with the 3rd overall pick in the draft. Quinn, who was widely expected to be a top 10 pick, waited patiently until he left for the private suite of Commissioner Goodell. Quinn was later picked 22nd after the Browns traded up. Instead of attending the 2007 draft festivities in New York, Thomas chose to continue a family tradition and go fishing on Lake Michigan with his father and Joe Panos, who was also a standout offensive lineman at Wisconsin and former Brookfield resident. Thomas discovered he was drafted by the Cleveland Browns via cell phone.
