Thresh... is a tank?

Looking at Thresh, he seems like he could be an awesome tank (aside from the fact that tanks are... not in the best place these days).

He has an Initiation skill which also functions as a slight pull.
He has an ally relocation ability (dual initiation possibilities? Imagine him leaping in and pulling an ally Galio with him...)
He has ANOTHER disruption/relocation ability
He has a confinement ability.
He can gain tankiness (and some damage) through soul collection (they havent mentioned this, but i'm assuming there is a limit. if not, that alone makes him an excellent candidate for being in a position to receive farm so he can become more tanky)
He can harass (something some melee tanks can do[Galio, Shen, Maokai, Malphite]) with well timed AAs.

He may not look it, and the times may be bad for it (and of course he's still being iterated), but i think we might have another support tank on our hands here depending on how this plays out.
Just wondering if anyone else thinks so.

Tank Support like Leona I think could work.

Thresh is probably going to be a Tank/Support because of his Kit

I think he could work as both support and jungler.

The ganks man.

THE GANKS.

Though it kinda depends on the values his passive gives.

He is more of a support mage than anything.

1 pure initiation, 1 knock back or another pull, and he does not need to farm to collect souls.
plus his ult is a giant slow.

he should be put in bot lane

Edit. He does not have any real farming abilities, so do not see jungling as a possible option currently

Been keeping updated on Youtube videos with him. He gains increased armor and mres at increasing increments that start below 1 per stack. And the stacks dont stop at 18 apparently, i saw someone get 20 in a video.

In that one topic CertainlyT did say that the next champ (Thresh) would visually look like a different role than he was made for. He looks like a Mage to me, and he's been tagged as a Support/Tank and he has lots of disruption like a tank is supposed to have, so he's prolly a tank.

i think it's to give him a bit of tankyness, so he as a support he doesn't blow up instantly, allowing him to build more support-ish and less tanky. (like, the reason leona has her W. if she didn't have it, she'd be pretty bad, having to build a lot of tankyness instead of support items, since she has to get right into the middle of people.
