Summary

There's not much room to improve from a season-long numbers standpoint for Thomas, but like his quarterback, he was a boom/bust option week-to-week, with low troughs and sky high peaks. He'll have better and healthier options around him in the passing game this year and the Saints aren't likely to shed their penchant to go conservative on offense once they are in control of a game. He's going to cost an early pick and he's worth it with the chance of yet another step forward in his game, but prepare for a rollercoaster ride. (May 1)
