Thomas possesses size and speed combo with upside that coaches seek in early round receivers. The nephew of Keyshawn Johnson, Thomas stands 6-foot-3 with good ball skills and huge catching radius.
The issues with Thomas in college were drops and consistency.
"He's a build to speed guy," one scout told Bob McGinn of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. "He's just so damn inconsistent. He could be the best blocker. He can crush people. He just doesn't do it all the time. He's got great catching range, all this and that. He also drops balls."
Fans will immediately compare Thomas' career to Colston, after the best pass-catcher in team history was jettisoned this offseason.
The team later traded up and selected safety Vonn Bell with pick No. 61.
