If the offensive lineman he would be facing this year would be women I'd take him in a heart beat. True Story

I have no doubt he piled up plenty on wide open throws down field. I saw a lot of Ohio State games, and this guy never did much to impress me.

As far as reading scouting reports, I've read that his route running is not very polished, and that he doesn't really fight for the off target ball.

It makes sense that PFF (the "scouting" service I make fun of routinely) would be the one to try to contradict all of that. I've seen the guy play. I'm not overly impressed.
A lot of his play came off of YAC in every sense of the acronym he also did play in a run first offense with the

A lot of his big plays came off of YAC in every sense of the acronym didn't play with the most polished QB's emphasis on QB'S and had the #1 drafted RB on his team, and still with all of that led the team the past two seasons in receiving, Megatron didn't have the most exceptional numbers in college either, might mean his best football is has to come and hopefully arrives in NO sooner but sticks around for later

Yes, he led the team. With average numbers. I don't know why you think they are a run oriented offense. They pass quite a bit. They like the athletic QB, but they don't use them like, say, Nebraska does.

Again, nothing he did stood out to me. The rest of you guys are free to be as excited as you want to be about him. This is my opinion, based on what I've seen.

Re: Michael Thomas!!

I know this is a "highlight reel" but he shows some nice YAC in my opinion.

Did you even pay attention to his performance and attitude last year?? He isn't worth league minimum or the headache.

Re: Michael Thomas!!

We needed that big body to pair with Fleener running across the middle. I believe he fits the bill nicely. We still need a speedster to take the safeties off the top and make this system work.

Yeah I don't get it.

6-1, 300 pounds isn't undersized for a 3 tech DT at all.

4.52 isn't slow at all for a 6-3, 212 pound WR.


5-11 200 is not undersized for a FS at all

Tyrann Mathieu 5-9
Malcolm Jenkins 6-0
Reggie Nelson 5-11
Earl Thomas 5-10
Tashaun Gipson 5-11
Glover Quinn 6-0
Eric Weddle 5-11
Jairus Byrd 5-10

All pro-bowl FS's.
