2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

The former college basketball player is an athletic freak but with Jacob Tamme and Joel Dreessen, not to mention Virgil Green, ahead of him on the depth chart, Thomas' fantasy potential remains quite limited.

2012

Thomas has failed to break through as a consistent player for the Broncos, battling injuries and better players above him on the depth chart. With Jacob Tamme and Joel Dreessen on the roster now, the latter doesn't figure to change, leaving Thomas with minimal opportunities to make an impact.

2011

A fourth-round draft pick, Thomas finds himself on a Broncos team in need of tight-end production. He played four years of basketball at Portland State before walking onto the football team, but the Broncos believe he has the most long-term upside of their tight-end options. While he needs to improve his blocking at the line he has enough speed to stretch defenses and a good set of hands to make catches in traffic. Dan Gronkowski is more adept at blocking than receiving, so Thomas has a shot to earn targets in the passing game.
