    It seems some of you aren't familier with David Thomas, so I put together a quick little highlight video. You guys got a hell of a player. His hands are magnets. I NEVER saw him drop a pass in 4 years. It's nothing special, but here you go.....

    Certaintly seems like he brings a bit more to the table offensively than fauria did.

    Damn, he looks more like a WR from that video. Great skills this guy has. Damn.......Brady....Watson, Branch, Jackson, Caldwell, Dillon, Maroney, Pass, Faulk, Graham, Brown. Not a bad group of targets Bradys gonna have next year. :)

    Of course I don't need to watch that, however I'm sure these northerners are grateful for seeing what a real TE looks like. :)

    usually these highlight vids u gotta kinda take with a grain of salt though

    so, being a longhorns fan, what does this guy project to be?
    could he be a good number two te if graham leaves after this yr
    who would you compare him to
    chris cooley?
    jason witten?
    christian fauria?

    He could easily be a #1 after a few years in the system. He's so clutch, the Brady of TE's. Over the last three years, I cannot remember a dropped pass at the moment. And it's not like he only catches what everyone else can, as you can see in the video he's very athletic and has the talent to make spectacular catches.

    Out of those three I'd compare him more to Witten. Cooley is more of a short-yardage guy, while Fauria blocks the best, but both Witten and Thomas can go down the field and make big plays.

    yeah, he definitely reminds me of Witten or Dallas Clark. Remember Wiggens circus catches? I think he can do that for us.

    I don't understand how this guy dropped to the bottom of the third.

    Great video. Im pretty enthused with this pick. And just imagine what he can do in this offense with a quarterback who is a good passer.

    Great pick for the Pats.

    I think there's some question about his blocking. Don't forget, being a tight end isn't just about catching the ball.

    With that said, I'm excited. If nothing else, he's a guy with good hands and big game experience.

    Maybe he and Graham can learn from each other...

    Yeah, but can he block?

    Wow, he does look like a WR. Looks like he's tough to bring down with the number of videos showing him breaking tackles.

    Two reactions from watching that video and reading some of the reports:

    1) Fauria never moved as well as this kid after the catch

    2) Thomas isn't that big and his blocking is universally reported as weak. So all those folks writing that he is insurance if Graham leaves after next year are waaaaay off base.

    More to the fundamental point: Could we be seeing an offensive philosophy change by BB? Hear me out on this one: Is it possible that instead of 5 WR's and 3 TE's active for games might we see 4 WR's and 4 TE's? After all, Watson is almost a WR and TE's can do more than WR's on special teams, etc. If this Thomas kid can be an accurate snapper, that will save another roster spot (sorry Lonie).

    That was my thought exactly. He is a better pass-catching TE than a blocking TE and so is exactly the opposite of Graham. Maybe BB thinks he can coach up his blocking, although he isn't that big - in the 240's IIRC?

    BTW that QB in the highlights looks pretty good. #10, what's his name? Someone should draft him. Every pass was right on the hands.
