    Only this one is an express train rather than a freight train. Not practical enough to be anything other than a specialist on offense and a return guy. Is he worth a pick or just a UDFA prospect?

    I've watched this kids entire Oregon career. He is electric, but he's tiny. One good special teams hit could end his life. His draft combine numbers do not correlate to how he produces on the field. His quick twitch fibers make young Devin Hester's seem slow.

    I am not sure if he can carry another 10 lbs, but he could be another D. Sproles type player. He is taller than Sproles, just needs a little more bulk. I know that Sproles has helped every team he has been on. Maybe Thomas can help the Bears.

    8 reps for a RB? He's not going to be giving many people the 'ol Payton stiff-arm

    If we ended up with a 7th round pick somehow sure. Trestman I'm sure would try to move him all over formations via motion and such, try to get him in space somehow. Probably wouldn't be effective at all until year two. Look at R Bush, took him quite a while to bulk up and gain the strength to run thru arm tackles. Right now it may be hard to touch Thomas, but if ya get a pinky on him in the NFL hes prolly going down. I really hope this isn't our option for a young guy to compete for RB2.

    Chip Kelly will take this guy well before the 7th. If Danny Woodhead can play in the league, Black Mamba certainly can.

    He's the same size as that other little dude we brought down from the CFL as a WR and PR/KR guy. I think we're on the lookout for another Mr. Ridiculous, v2.0.

    The other one...............runs fast, has moves, can't catch. You know the other one who suckered Atlanta into hiring him.
