Pats to meet with UT safety Thomas

A league source has confirmed to WEEI.com that the Patriots have scheduled a pre-draft meeting with Texas safety Earl Thomas next week in Austin, Texas, but no workout is scheduled with Thomas as of yet. Thomas is considered one of the elite defensive backs available in this year's draft (in the latest WEEI.com mock draft, Thomas is slated to go 13th overall to the 49ers). A playmaker who might be able to move to cornerback at the NFL level, the 5-foot-10, 195-pounder started all 27 games of his college career, finishing with 149 tackles, and 10 interceptions. As a sophomore last season, he set a Texas record with eight interceptions, and his two interception returns for touchdowns last season also set a school record.

Lackey throws four shutout innings

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Red Sox starter John Lackey logged four scoreless innings, in which he remained characteristically efficient. He allowed just two hits and walked none while striking out a pair of Mets hitters, needing just 39 pitches to sail through his outing.

 

Lackey has now thrown nine scoreless innings this spring, and he has yet to walk a man during the Grapefruit League season. He has allowed five hits in 30 at-bats, holding opponents to a .167 average.
