Round 7, Pick 231

Jeff Thomas, WR


I’m going WR in Round 7 no matter what. The draft is ridiculously deep at receiver, meaning when the final stanza comes along, WR is likely to offer the highest rated players on the board. Jeff Thomas is the type of high-risk/high-reward player you love in the seventh round.

Jeff Thomas was once considered the most gifted player on the Miami offense (and that’s saying something). But constant clashes with coaches and multiple suspensions always got in the way of tangible success. And the 5-foot-9 playmaker enters the draft with a chip on his shoulder and a reputation to repair.

Will he change his stripes? Probably not but it’s worth a flyer. Thomas is extremely quick and hard to get your hands on. He’s beaten some well-regarded defenders in press and can be a nightmare to match up against inside. He can do returns, gadget plays, slot and Z. Worth taking a shot on (Highlights Here).


The Dallas Cowboys traded back after seeing their board get wiped clean. Using three picks in the second, they collected their No. 1 CB, future starting 3-technique, and future Pro Bowl slot man. They followed it up with a starting safety as well as some high-potential developmental picks at TE, WR, and OT.

Trading out of the first isn’t optimal but is has to be seen as a viable option if they don’t see value at Pick 17. What do you think? Be sure to head over to Draft Network to run through some simulations yourself. Be sure to share some of those realistic scenarios below in the comments.
