    Demaryius Thomas may be the most physically gifted receiver in the draft, and has a chance to eventually be an Andre Johnson or Calvin Johnson type player in the NFL. He's still raw, but his value will only go up after the combine. He may be a slight reach in the first round, but could end up being a steal in the second.

    See for yourself:

    Admittedly, I haven't seen him play. But, I like his size. Hope to see him at the combine.

    Is he gonna be part of it does anyone know?

    I'm really hoping Miami takes him. I loved watching him play and think he's going to be a very very good WR.

    The Sporting News Today's mock draft published today has the Dolphins taking him.

    The last workout warrior we had at WR was....David Boston.

    His acceleration and size are great. Looks like the type of physical player we're really in need of. I wouldn't be upset if we drafted him.

    Bring him on....size and acceleration opposite Ginn....
    Would like to see a video of him catching balls across the middle though.
    His size is impressive.

    I like what I saw of him. Did you see that block by the OT on one of those plays. That was great too !

    I'm personally not impressed.
    The only route I have seem him run has been a fly.
    Not going to work coming into the NFL. Comparisons to Andre or Calvin shouldn't come until you can show you can go across the middle and catch a ball. That's what really separates great WRs in the NFL. Not couting Randy Moss of course, just because he is the most physically gifted player ever in the NFL.
    He has great measurable and certainly is physical, but I'm just not impressed.

    He will be overreached for in the draft, and just doesn't plain have skills right now. He's one of those players that would be wonderful to take a gamble with a late 2nd, early 3rd. Won't have the luxury of getting him there.

    Love Thomas. Possibly the best WR in the draft at getting YAC. That's the propblem with our current WR corp, no YAC whatsoever. Also hands down the best blocking WR in the draft, and we all know Parcells covets WR's who can block. Thomas reminds me a lot of Marques Colston, and Parcells really likes Colston.

    Pat Turner is the 6'5" developmental receiver; not another.

    Had his needs held up, Boston would have been a very legitimate receiver in the league. Oh and the whole steroid thing. But I dont think DT is on roids....

    Pat Turner couldn't hold a candle to this guy IMO. Thomas is A LOT more physical, and has great strength at blocking and getting seperation.

    believe we will resolve the WR & ILB issues in the draft:
    Thomas or Bryant are obvious candidates
    for the WR/PlayMaker spot & McClain @ ILB

    look for us to pick up a NT & FS in FreeAgency
