I remember him as a late-first type...that draft was only a couple years ago too, so it's not exactly gone from memory.
Thomas isn't anywhere near Bryant as a prospect...not unless you want to draw shallow parallels like only one year of dominance in college or something...which would ignore that Bryant was not only better in his one dominant year (alot better)...but that Bryant also threw up 622/14.47/6 as a freshman while Thomas threw up 90/15.0/1 as a sophomore.
1- your memory must be lacking as everyone had him going to the Bills with the 11th pick of the draft that year, no one thought he would get out of the top twenty and no one thought he'd end up as the second receiver selected.....
2- where did I compare Thomas vs Bryant as football players? I didn't... I said you are going to hear people start talking about Bryant, considered by most as top 12 pick, making a Thomas like drop...
