  • Demaryius Thomas Works Out For Rams

    Per Rotoworld:

    Georgia Tech WR Demaryius Thomas (foot) is reportedly working out for Rams scouts on Sunday.
    It appears Thomas will not hold a Pro Day-style workout as originally reported by ESPN's Chris Mortensen, but that he is healthy enough to go through drills. Thomas, who broke his foot before the Combine, may be on St. Louis' radar with the No. 33 overall pick should he fall out of the first round.

    This guy would be a steal! If he slips to round two, unless we are offered a 2011 first round pick, we cant trade this pick. Our first two rounds we shore up two major needs, QB and WR with two studs...Id be elated.

    I agree. The only knock on this guy is that he is raw. Well give his some coaching and experience and he could develop in to a #1 receiver. Especially a guy with his size could be a perfect fit in a west coast offense.

      Would be a perfect fit in the WR corps with him being a big framed WR and having Avery being a smaller quicker WR

        The only thing that makes me nervous is that he comes from an option offense. When watching clips of him it seems he gets so open because no teams would prepare to stop the pass. STILL, in the highlights I have seen, I am impressed. I would definitely be excited if we got him at 33.

          Jim Thomas on the Second Round
          by 39thebeast
          Jim Thomas: The options are dwindling almost by the hour in free agency. We're talking Bryant Johnson, D.J. Hackett and Javon Walker. I guess there could always be a trade. (Roy Williams? Chad Johnson?)
          I think there's pretty good depth at WR in the draft, although I've yet to study that position very closely. But there's certainly not a top 5 type in the draft pool. Here's what I see right now, realizing this is a moving target. If the Rams come up with veteran help at WR before the draft, they strongly consider taking a CB in the second round. (No. 33 overall) If they come up with veteran help at CB before the draft, they strongly consider talking a WR in the second round.

          It looks like he sees us taking a CB or WR, I don't think CB is a huge need, but we will see

          WR Devin Thomas retires from NFL

          Thomas was considered by some the best receiver in the 2008 class, none of whom were selected in the first round. He was selected by the Redskins immediately after the Rams took Donnie Avery. Thomas finishes his career with 43 receptions for 482 yards and 3 touchdowns.

          Should we go after Devin Thomas?
          by md8
          The Redskins are actively working to trade WR Devin Thomas, according to the National Football Post.
          Thomas has been buried on the depth chart and relegated to a special teams role ever since coach Mike Shanahan arrived. The underachieving 2008 second-round pick still has plenty of upside if he gets a change of scenery. Still, his inability to move past names like Joey Galloway and Anthony Armstrong speaks volumes. Perhaps the Redskins could coax a team like the Rams, Seahawks or Vikings into giving up a late-round pick for a flier on Thomas.

          If we could get him for a late pick, I'd say go for it. I think he has potential to be a good WR. From what I've seen of him, he is quick and can run over people. I was surprised that he hasn't been getting any playing time in Washington.

          Though I wonder whats wrong with him if players like Galloway, Armstrong and Roydell Williams are playing and he's not.

          Even if he doesn't turn out to be anything great, with our injuries at WR we could use another WR or two just for depth. So if we can get him for a 4th or lower I think we should defiantly do it.

          Georgia Tech WR Thomas breaks foot

          Confirmed: Demaryius Thomas Breaks Foot
          TFY Draft Insider
          Feb. 17

          Training for the combine has seemingly taken its’ toll on a top player today as several sources on the scene have told us Georgia Tech receiver Demaryius Thomas allegedly hurt his foot while practicing the three cone drill. It looks as though Thomas has broken a bone in his foot. The big receiver, who is training in Scottsdale, Arizona, has been tearing it up recently. Sources have told us after weighing in at 220-pounds Thomas had been timed as fast as 4.38-seconds in the forty. This afternoon Thomas was seen on crutches. Update 11PM.

          Update 11 PM

          We’ve since talked to several sources who were on hand to watch Thomas prepare for the combine and all the reviews have been glowing. Some told us many of the other players on hand at API preparing for the combine were amazed at the athleticism Thomas displayed on a daily basis. He was not only fast but very explosive and strong. The receiver coaches on hand were astonished at the route running ability the 237-pound Thomas displayed besides the ability to make all the receptions. Several we spoke with said they could not wait for his workout at the combine and, in a bit of irony, thought it would be reminiscent of the workout turned in by former Yellow Jacket receiver Calvin Johnson.

          How will this effect the draft stock of Thomas? Todd France told us general managers have said since Thomas will be ready to go for OTA’s it won’t hurt much. And while we agree we think the inability to workout in front of scouts makes it almost impossible for Thomas to make a big leap up draft boards.

          Update 7:30 PM

          Todd France, the agent for Demaryius Thomas, confirmed with us a little while ago his client did in fact break a foot today. France told us the big receiver will be checked by specialists to determine if surgery is needed and admitted it is very possible that a pin may need to be inserted into the foot of Thomas to hasten the healing.

          The recovery time will be four-to-six weeks and it is very questionable whether or not Thomas will workout for NFL teams prior to the draft. The issue is even a four week recovery will bring Thomas into the middle of March. At that point he’ll be a bit rusty and won’t be able to train all out as he has been.

          France did confirm that Thomas had run a 4.38 forty last week after weighing in at 227-pounds. France tolud us the run was filmed and every NFL team would receive a copy. More later this evening.

          Other news from Arizona has former Oklahoma tight end Jermaine Gresham looking very good as he prepares for the combine. Sources have told us Gresham looks fit and fast. He’s catching the ball very well in drills and though not yet 100%, seems close to full strength.

          The same cannot be said for Eric Decker. Decker has not been doing...
