Demaryius Thomas

With Peyton Manning’s safety net receiver having not been re-signed (Wes Welker), Demaryius Thomas may very well step up to be the new go-to receiver for the Denver Broncos. In 2014, he caught 111 passes for a total of 1619 yards and 11 touchdowns.

Thomas has some incredible speed and some great moves to juke defenders. He will definitely need to be covered, and covered well. Any opening left for him will result in a major gain and quite possibly a touchdown for Denver.
