Default Where Do You See D'Anthony Thomas Getting Drafted?

Tavon Austin paved the way for Thomas getting drafted high, teams will love his potential.

I currently have him going to the Cowboys in the top 20.

How and why the Cowboys? And the only way he gets picked in the first round is if he can become a better WR. Austin showed that he can play WR, KR, PR and come out of the backfield as a RB.

Cause no way does Thomas get drafted top 20 just on being a RB. But I really like Thomas as a player. And would love to see him go to a team like the Saints.

As far as how and why the Cowboys - he'd be for them what Felix Jones never turned out to be. (Although he really wasn't as bad as some people think - he just played more like the 3rd round pick he should've been.) They'd still be hoping for DeMarco Murray to stay healthy, but having DeAnthony Thomas to take 5-10 carries a game and catch another 5 passes along with returning kicks would be solid production and give them another game-breaking weapon to compliment Dez Bryant.

I think if Thomas has a strong season he's a pretty good bet to go mid-first or so. No one is going to look at him as a workhorse running back or go-to wide receiver, but he's a big-play threat that can line up in several places and contribute in three phases - running, catching and returning - and when you put it all together you'd realistically be talking about giving him 20 touches a game in different situations, which I think is enough usage to taking a player that high.

It will depend on his hands and how many passes are thrown to him. If he can demonstrate superb hands and Oregon shows a lot of confidence in throwing him the ball, then he has a real shot at a high 1st round pick, that's if he runs in the 4.3's and shows a real ability to play WR at the combine.
Should he fail to impress, then he'll drop substantially.

Did you like Tavon Austin? Did you think Percy Harvin was a good pick at 22 overall? I think those are the players he mostly compares to, although I don't think he's as physical as either of them. I think it's pretty easy to argue that Percy was a good value at 22 and should've gone in the top 10 as Tavon did. Tavon can thank Percy. Right now, though, I put Thomas a step behind those two, as a prospect, but not out of the first. The 22 spot seems about right. At this point I see him going in the latter third of the first to a balanced team looking to add an explosive element.

The problem is you're comparing him to WRs that had a little something extra. He's a RB that appears to have decent receiving skills.

He's more like a taller Darren Sproles, the NFL has seen how valuable Sproles is, so I could see him going in the 1st or 2nd, but I'm not sold on him in the NFL. He's kind of like a less built but faster version of Kendall Hunter, although Hunter was not as prolific of a receiver

I think people kinda forget that Percy Harvin was as much a running back as he was a receiver at Florida. He had 194 carries to 133 catches in 3 years (59% runs), and after 2 years DeAnthony Thomas has 147 carries and 91 receptions (62% runs). That's pretty similar.

Might as well add he's the closest thing I've seen to Devin Hester since the man himself.

He seems positionless for the NFL in my eyes right now. Not an NFL RB and not really a WR either. He is a RB who can catch but is built more like a WR. He is slight and I'd say he is closer to 170 than 180. It works in the college game in a offense that lets him consistently play in space where he is effective, but I have strong doubts about him contributing in the run game.

Harvin and Austin are his closest comparisons but I don't think they compare really. Harvin is just a bigger heavier player (192 at the combine) and even then he shouldn't be getting any NFL carries with any regularity so I don't expect Thomas should either. Austin is similar size wise but is much more skilled as a WR. Kendall Hunter is 200 lbs and has proven to be a effective inside runner in the NFL.

This season should really help show us more. I'd be interested to see how he measures up at a combine. I think late 1st is fair for a player of his explosion, but I don't know how he really fits a team. He could be a guy that guy who excels at different spots on an offense or he could never really fit in like Hester.

Come on guys...I guess we think Jerry is completely senile then eh? That would be the only explanation for a team with Demarco Murray, Joseph Randle, Jason Witten, Gavin Escobar, Dez Bryant, Miles Austin, & Terrance Williams. Oh with one of the worst interior offensive lines in the league. So somehow that means we take someone else to catch passes and run the ball? Sounds like a winning recipe.


He's probably going to a team lacking offensive weapons and firepower, like Oakland or NY Jets. Though color me confused that he is worth a top 20 pick but you can get a Denard Robinson in the 5th round or Russel Shepard undrafted. Jerry just took a Center in the 1st round this year, I really don't think he's lost it as much as some think, he knows where the trouble area is and where our strength is.

Can't find a team to plug a prospect? Simply drop him on Dallas use the "Jerruh being Jerruh" line. Lock it up. Championship.

How about with his old coach? I'm sure Chip Kelly would be able to find him snaps as a slot WR/RB/returner.

He's hard to read as a prospect as well. Is he a top 20 pick and a gamechanger or is he an undersized RB who can't block or run between the tackles? i.e. a mid-rounder. One thing is for sure though he's fun to watch :)

While those stats may be similar, they aren't all-telling. I'd like to see statistics on where they lined up more in college, not how many times they touch the ball. Both get many runs on what we used to call a fly sweep, where a WR comes in motion, getting a handoff in the process. These are recorded as runs, but they aren't true from a RB position.

From a receiving standpoint, from the film I saw and if I remember Percy from college (it's been a while and I don't feel like watching a video on him) he lined up outside and in the slot WAY more than De'Anthony, all these things help translate more to the NFL IMO than what De'Anthony does.

It's nothing against De'Antony, and I think in the right system he'd be a great addition in the late first round but he has to be used in the right role.

spiller is the better comparison if you ask me.

Probably in the first 2 rounds but I don't know what he'll do. He's not much of a WR and has a horrible build for a RB.

Why do people compare this guy go to a 200+ pound back when he's going to struggle to show up at 180?

Right now, though, I put Thomas a step behind those two, as a prospect, but not out of the first. The 22 spot seems about right. At this point I see him going in the latter third of the first to a balanced team looking to add an explosive element.
I think this is a very good analysis. As I said earlier in this thread, though, I think Tavon Austin's success or failure will affect where he goes. Teams seem very quick to learn from the recent past. I think the struggles of Locker/Gabbert/Ponder contributed to how far QB's fell in this year's draft.
