2013

Thomas lacks height, but he plays hard and is very athletic, possessing both straight-line speed and sufficient lateral movement. He likely won't play much as a rookie as long as Ryan Clark and Troy Polamalu are healthy, but the latter player is often hurt. There's IDP upside here in dynasty formats.
