2008 NFL Draft: Bills To Visit with Michigan State Receiver Devin Thomas

The Buffalo Bills have scheduled a meeting with Michigan State University wideout Devin Thomas, who is among the top five wideouts coming out of the upcoming NFL draft. 

Thomas played high school ball at Canton High in Canton, Michigan.  He is listed at 6'2" and weighs 215 pounds.

Some career highlights include his selection as the second team all KJCCC in 2005 and the second team all Big Ten in 2007. Last season his team played in the 2007 Champs Sport Bowl where they loss to Boston College.

Thomas is a junior and with impressive career numbers: 164 receptions for 2,610 yards with a 15.9 yards per catch average and 17 career touchdowns.  He has good size and speed, and he can move the chains with his yards and catching ability.

Thomas' 40-time was 4.40 and for the board jump his distance was 10'6". He was a top performer in both of the events recently at the NFL combine, and would be a good fit for the Bills' offense with his height and speed.

The Bills need a guy like Thomas because he does rack up yards after the catch, and he can move the chains.  Thomas would be a great addition to the Bills' offense, whether they do or do not secure Malcolm Kelly.

Thomas can really bring a lot to the struggling Bills' receiving corps.
