  • Demarius Thomas

    What is the scouting report on Demaryius Thomas? I am yet too see him play. I did notice in one of the mock drafts he went in the top 15. A couple of years ago my buddy told me too keep an eye on this guy. Saying he had Calvin Johnson like qualities. So I am guessing he is a big receiver with some good speed?

    He is basically Calvin Johnson, but probably not godly like Johnson. With the way Georgia Tech's offense is, he won't get to shine as a reciever. I could see him blowing up in offseason workouts. Probably one of my top recievers in next year's draft if he were to declare.

      Top 5 WR prospect for next year's class for sure. It's a shame he won't get to do much in that offense next year.

        Yeah it's a shame he will never put up huge stats in Paul Johnson's navy option offense, but in perspective he is so productive with what he is given. IMO his production last year would be equivalent to getting 1200 yards in the spread offenses guys like Crabtree and Maclin came from. It's a shame that Dez and Aurrellious will be putting up huge stats while Thomas has just as much ability but won't get enough looks from Nesbitt who I also think is killing any pro potential by playing in this system. Still this system wins football games and that's all a college coach cares about. The system definitely benefits Dwyer though.

          Best blocking WR I've seen in a long time

            Great blocking WR, even better receiving threat. Should be a 2nd-3rd rounder in this draft because of not as much production, but has Calvin Johnson-esque potential

              I could actually see him putting up 8-900 yards.

                He's got great size, 6'3 and 228, and as many have said is a great blocker. It isn't that he isn't a good receiveing threat, he's great as a receiver, he just doesn't have many opportunities. He is a big, physical, athletic WR in the mold of Megatron. He would be more like Bumblebee though, haha. Seriously, he is a good WR prospect who has a great shot at going first day next year if he declares. His hands are pretty good, but needs to work on route running a bit, but is very strong and has good speed.

                  he's definitely more like Bumblebee than Megatron. I was hoping for Megatron to stay one more year at GT and teach Demaryius Thomas some more.

                    Scouts will overlook his system's restrictions. In fact, it only highlights his awesome blocking. To put it simply, the dude is Calvin Jr.

                      Bumblebee is awesome in his own right, but will never reach the godly stature that Megatron has.

                        Keyshawn Johnson type of player? It seems like he doesn't have the speed or explosiveness of Calvin Johnson, is that accurate? Could he put on 20lbs and play tight end (not to sound like a previous poster who will not be named)?

                          He's not any where near CJ with his speed. This was the only clip I could find but it illustrates his speed, I think.

                            no. he's a 4.5 guy. not the fastest, but still a good speed. He's a possession type in the NFL. think Dwayne Bowe or Anquan Boldin style receiver more than anyone else. just a guy who can go up there and get it and be a focus of a drive.

                              He doesn't, but you'll be hard pressed to find anyone that does. His speed is average, and he is pretty quick, not overly quick though. He definitely is a posession receiver in the NFL with the body type of a Dwayne Bowe.
