Name: Demaryius Thomas

Height: 6' 3"

Weight: 229 lbs

Hometown: Montrose, GA

Position: Wide Receiever

Class: Junior

Strengths: Power, strength, and speed. Bay Bay is a receiver with good hands and long legs who out runs his defenders by taking long powerful strides. Thomas also has the ability to jump and used those abilities many times during his time at Tech. However, one of his greatest strengths is his ability to be a blocking receiver. Georgia Tech's runners amassed over 4,000 yards on the ground and many of these gains can be attributed to Bay Bay. He also has a powerful stiff-arm which makes him very effective off screen passes. He is not afraid to get in the opponent's face.

Weaknesses: The unknown. Bay Bay was not asked to run many precise routes. He ran a lot of curls and go routes so precise route-running may be an issue.

NFL Draft Talk: (note: all discussion here is before it was announced Bay Bay broke his foot) Right as his stock begins to rise, word comes out that he has broken his foot, taking him out of the NFL Combine where surely his name would have been a constant subject. Nevertheless, Mel Kiper has Thomas joining Michael Johnson in Cincinnati as the 21st overall pick. CBS Sports projects him to be a Top 20, and our very own SBN site, Mocking the Draft, had him at 35th overall (early 2nd round) to San Francisco.
