Heading into the off-season, the secondary was a top concern for the Cincinnati Bengals. The re-signing of Reggie Nelson is a step in the right direction, and while Nelson will presumably be the opening day starter, Phillip Thomas would provide valuable depth at the position, along with a strong special teams role. The 5 foot 10 inch junior led Syracuse in tackles this past season and added six interceptions as well, however, had he returned to play his senior season he would have served a season long suspension for "violating athletic department policy". Rationally, he opted for the NFL.

Phillip Thomas is evaluated as a 3rd round talent by ESPN's Todd McShay, however he has also been deemed a 7th round talent by Sports Illustrated draft guru Tony Pauline.
