He's not the Wendy's guy; this is one of the MacKenzie brothers.
Seriously, this one is a real headscratcher when we have obviouls needs on defense.
Here's measurables from si.com:
David Thomas Grade: 3.64
Conference: Big Twelve
Ht., Wt.: 6-3, 252
40 Time: 4.74
Selected by: New England Patriots
Round 3, pick 22 (86 overall)
Three-year starter awarded All-Conference and All-Academic honors since his junior campaign. Led Texas in receiving as a senior with 50/613/5 after 25/430/5 the prior year.
Athletic tight end who plays with a good degree of intelligence. Finds the open spot on the field and effectively uses his frame to shield away opponents. Has soft hands, makes the reception in stride and keeps the play in bounds. Possesses excellent field sense, gets past the sticks on third down and is always in tune with the quarterback. Gives effort as a blocker.
Rarely moves linebackers off the ball blocking. Not a consistent deep threat.
Lacking great upside, Thomas has been a consistent pass-catching threat who elevated his play the past three seasons. Should see significant playing time in third-down back/red-zone situations at the next level.
It's so simple, even a Jets fan could do it.ä
