The Denver Broncos got an outstanding player when they drafted Demaryius Thomas in the 1st round of the 2010 Draft. Since then Thomas has put the team on his back and has consistently been the Broncos best receiver. Who ever wins the Denver starting quarterback position will come into a winning environment because of players like Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders. Both guys get the job done and will provide more than competent weapons on the edges for when Paxton Lynch rises up and seizes the job. That group could be very dynamic and the Broncos would be in a lot worse shape if they didn’t have Demaryius Thomas making plays for this offense. Thomas hauled in 1,304 receiving yards and 6 touchdowns in 2015. Those are big time numbers and while you’d like to the see the touchdown total a little higher, you still have to respect the 1,300 yards. That means Thomas was consistently putting up 100 yard receiving games week in and week out for Denver, showing how dependable this guy can truly be. When you watch film on Thomas you are even more impressed. Thomas can beat you with a fade up the sideline and he can beat you with post route. He also can beat you by faking a post and then quickly running a flag route. Not to mention you can throw a bubble screen to Demaryius Thomas and the guy is great after the catch with the ball in his hands. Some that makes him a possession receiver and a yards after catch type of player. Showing that Demaryius Thomas can do just about anything on a football field. He is leader of the Denver Broncos receiving corps and a spectacular football player when it’s all said and done.
