Broncos trade up for WR Demaryius Thomas

The Broncos traded a 4th round pick to the Patriots and moved up two spots to select WR Demaryius Thomas. Not many people had Thomas going ahead of Dez Bryant, but after all the issues coach McDaniels had with Brandon Marshall last season, character was an obvious consideration.

That said, Demaryius Thomas is no slouch and should slot in quickly (if not immediately) as the Broncos #1 wideout. Thomas averaged over 25 yards per catch last year, recording 1154 receiving yards and 8 TDs for the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets.
