 The Jets are looking at Georgia Tech WR Demaryius Thomas to be a late round pick. He be a good addition with Jerricho Cotchery and Braylon Edwards. The Jets need three good receivers to make the offense strong. Mark Sanchez would have more targets to throw to and score TDs. The report on Thomas he a king-sized wideout with impressive short-area quickness and body control for his size. Thomas knows how to go up and get the ball. He looks like a power forward when he's asked to attack the ball. He possesses both a physical element and great range when asked to catch away from his frame. Thomas does a decent job generating a burst out of his breaks, but he's a strider who takes a while to get downfield and lacks the type of gear to make plays. Thomas uses his body well to shield the ball from defenders and has impressive wingspan. He does a nice job staying on blocks in the run game but could be more physical on contact. He would a great blocker for Jets running game. Jets coaches Rex Ryan and Brian Schottenheimer are hoping Thomas is still around to be pick.
