Demaryius Thomas Debut
Finally we get to see the Broncos first draft pick play. Hurray!
I am actually really excited to see what Thomas can do. I didn’t get a chance to make it to TC this year. (Darn 40 hour work weeks!) Even though Thomas is probably only going to get a few targets it will be nice to see him in some NFL action. I wanted Denver to draft him since Brandon Marshall was traded, and was ecstatic that we picked him with our first pick. I was thinking that Denver would pick him up in the second round, but it became clear he was not going to last that long. He is big, fast, and can make the circus catch. He really is a lot like Brandon Marshall except faster and better at go routes and catching over the shoulder.
I hope Orton looks his way. Right now Thomas is listed behind Brandon Lloyd on the depth chart. Though McDaniels depth charts are like parking tickets. We may get to see quite a few catches from Thomas.
I am predicting 4 catches for 75 yards.
