Summary

The Saints drafted Michael Thomas (6'-3" and 212 pounds) in the 2nd round a year ago. He earned Brees' confidence early and had 92 catches for 1,137 yards and 9 TDs in his rookie campaign. Thomas showed promise early in last season's pre-season work-outs and was productive out of the gate catching 6 passes on 6 targets for 58 yards in his first game. After he was drafted by the Saints, Thomas remarked that he considered his competitiveness, routes, hands and passion for the game as his greatest strengths. His self evaluation rang true during his rookie season. The Saints trade of Brandin Cooks shows the team is confident in Thomas's ability to be the top receiver. (May 20)
