2010 NFL Draft Scouting Report: Demaryius Thomas



Strengths:
  • Very big frame
  • Great bulk and strength
  • Elite blocker; very physical
  • Good hands at LOS to get off jam
  • High points football at apex
  • Difficult to bring down; strong runner
  • Uses body to shield opponents from ball
  • Willing to go over the middle





    Weaknesses:
  • Extremely poor route runner
  • Too straight up when going into breaks; doesn't sell
  • Struggles to separate
  • Below average speed
  • Inconsistent hands
  • Loses focus
  • Lacks deep speed
  • Lacks agility
  • Unimpressive vision after catch
  • Limited upside

    Summary: I just don't see a natural receiver whatsoever when I put on tape of Thomas, who is considering declaring for the 2010 NFL Draft as a junior after his big season. He lacks speed and there is simply too much development needed to warrant a high second-round pick. Don't buy the hype. Thomas is a projected third-to-fourth-round pick.

    Player Comparison: Michael Clayton. Clayton occasionally loses focus and lacks the speed to be a playmaker in the NFL; both set the tone as run blockers.
