+1. I think Michael has the potential to become a complete NFL WR.

He kind of reminds me of Dez Bryant ... fearless, soft hands, strong & does not shy away from catching in traffic.

Re: I'm surprised about Michael Thomas

Well, Thomas' under-the-radar attitude, skills has worked out for the Saints and their draft who desperately needed to replace Colston without dropoff...

Would love to have been at the Buckeye ProDay when the Saints pretty much decided they were drafting everyone out of OSU not named Bosa...

Know everyone likes the amazing catches, but his attitude and focus to dedicate to his craft - that, that is what has really jumped out at me so far...

Without the bad attitude.

He didn't put up big numbers, but he did the frog-n-fly thing with almost everything thrown his way. Watched a lot of Buckeye football last year and for a while, his name around here was, "Howdy Dodat?" He'll be a fun one to watch this coming season.

Re: I'm surprised about Michael Thomas

I'm no college football expert by any stretch but from what I read about Thomas, the reason he didn't have the big numbers other receivers had was because of the run first offense he was in at Ohio State.

Now that he's in a pass first offense maybe he'll put up those amazing numbers he couldn't get in college. If he can, I think he'll be the perfect compliment to Cooks' speed and Snead's clutch grabs. We can hope.

That's a good point, didn't Demaryius Thomas play in a run first offense at Georgia Tech?

Then when denver signed Peyton Manning his stats shot through the roof.

Michael Thomas is out to prove that the OSU goofy QB system over the past few years hurt his play.

so far so good

Might take a chance and get the jersey while it's cheap.
Sounds and looks like he's a lock.
