Demaryius Thomas>>>>Dez Bryant. Better athleticism, bigger, more work ethic, etc. DT reminds me of a young TO. If he would've played with a real QB and a real system at GT he would've gone crazy. 1K yards and 25 yards per catch is insane. He supposedly also ran a 4.38 40 on tape before he injured his foot and couldn't run at the combine. Plus he has a better attitude and less question marks.
No way DT runs in the 4.3s. He is around a 4.45. At best. Those 40 times are so screwed up (Taylor Mays at combine ran an unofficial 4.28 and an official time of 4.43). however, Thomas is one of the most explosive players and straight line speed is not always as important as acceleration, which thomas has in spades.
Only thing keeping him back are his hands. They don't suck, but they sure aren't as good as Dez's. Thomas can lose concentration and drop easy passes, as well as the fact that he is really raw and has never ran pro routes.
I actually like Damian Williams, but I think both DT and DW will go in the first 7 in the second round.
Just realised that i wrote "eould" instead of would in the title. I gotta get more sleep.
