Demaryius Thomas has shown a positive connection with quarterback Tim Tebow. In the last five games of the regular season, Thomas caught 25 passes for 448 yards and three touchdowns. The connection should continue to bloom and the Broncos should make Thomas the guy to further that development.
Currently, however, Thomas is behind Eric Decker and Eddie Royal on the depth chart. Decker had a decent year with 44 receptions, 612 yards, and eight touchdowns. Not horrible, considering he's on a run-first offense. Royal contributed next to nothing on offense, with just over 100 yards and one touchdown.
Look at a few of the great wide receiving tandems in the league: Roddy White and Julio Jones of the Atlanta Falcons; Dez Bryant and Miles Austin of the Dallas Cowboys; Hakeem Nicks and Victor Cruz of the New York Giants. Each duo brings a combination of speed and power.
The Broncos need another high-quality receiver to take pressure off of Thomas. Decker and Royal are not those options. Decker makes for a great slot-receiver, but that's it, while Royal produces well on special teams, where he should remain.
