    Thomas from Ga Tech declares-possible round 2 pick

    Demetrius Thomas, the 6' 3" 235 pound stud receiver from Ga Tech declared for the draft today. I think he is an excellent possiblity if we go receiver in round 2. I have watched him every game for two years, he has an nfl body, good hands and is an outstanding blocker. The key will be how he runs. He looks fast on the field, but i dont know him 40 time. He is a real playmaker.

    "... if we go receiver in round 2."

    Do you mean if he is BPA in round two or if they feel they need to do a WR in round two?

    I support one: BPA. If a WR is BPA significantly compared to a more pressing need, sure then. Nice prospect.

    In terms of build, he reminds me a lot of Anquan Boldin.

    He needs to work a bit more on his hands IMO, but he's definitely a guy who is going to be in the mix in the second round. I'll have my eye on him during the combine and his pro day; a good show for a guy that size could help him sneak into the first.

    Gotta love the size, but in that option offense there will be alot of questions about his game besides his blocking where I think he is verry good. He doesn't really run the full NFL route tree, most of the time he has a go route of off play action. Workouts and the combine will be extremely important for him.

    Didn't the rams say they wanted big WR's??? I would love to take a big WR if he can play good. But he has to be a better prospect than the QB's who may fall from the 1st round.

    Re: Thomas from Ga Tech declares-possible round 2 pick

    I am not suggesting that we have to go wide receiver in round 2, only that if we do, he is a legit option. His average per catch numbers and total number of catches are very impressive considering the type of offense he played in. His size and blocking speak for themselves. I agree, he has had some drops, but he has also made a very significant number of huge catches. The guy played two years with a qb with essentially no accuracy and many of his big catches were throw them up in the vicinity and let him make a play type of receptions.
