It’s no surprise that this draft was about providing Goff with the necessary weapons to succeed, and the Rams accomplished that with one of this year’s biggest steals. Thomas hauled in 71 receptions for 1,392 yards (19.6 yards per catch) and 14 touchdowns this past season and it’s hard to believe he fell to the sixth round: sure he’s a raw player who has suffered from the occasional focus drop, but there is much more to work with. He is a 6’1,” 193 pound outside receiver who caught 14 passes for 20+ yards, seventh most in this class, can out-muscle defenders at the catch point, and possesses desirable burst after the catch. His route running has improved from 2014 and has flashed the ability to snap off in and out breaking routes while creating separation at the top; Thomas’ catch radius also allows him to go high and snag passes out of the air and haul in balls outside of his frame.
