I'm surprised about Michael Thomas

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; From what I've seen in videos, and from what I've read in dozens and dozens of articles so far, how in the world did this cat slip to the 2nd round? He has stud written all over him....

He looks to have all the tools to be great

He catches well, has tenacity when running after the catch and most of all is a self motivator

I read earlier that he ran a lap without being told to because he made a mistake in a drill.

I'm impressed. Let's hope he makes it through camp healthy. Treadwell who?

He wasn't putting up huge numbers at Ohio State. He didn't have the best pocket passers to get him the ball either. Seems to be a steal just like Jarvis Landry was for the Dolphins.

+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.
