Notes:
2004 and 2005 Second Team All-Big 12 selection...Had 10 touchdowns heading into his senior season and made five scoring catches during the Longhorns' National Championship campaign...The favorite target of Vince Young, Thomas racked up 50 catches for 613 yards in '05...At 6-3, 245 pounds, Thomas is a bit undersized for an NFL tight end...Was a tight end/wide receiver hybrid in college, and it remains to be seen how his game will translate at the next level...Can make catches in the middle of the field but also has the speed and athleticism to hurt defenses with a big play...Has terrific hands and will not shy away from contact after the catch.
