    in receptions with fifty four for seven hundred ninety nine yards. In January 2016, he announced his intent to enter the 2016 NFL Draft. He was drafted by the New Orleans Saints a few months later.

    NFL Draft

    Despite a projection of being picked in round two or three during the NFL Combine, there was a of forward thinking optimism regarding his NFL career. His height, weight, and speed made him perfect for the position. He also had a strong vertical push that would intimidate even the strongest of cornerbacks. However, the agents also noted that he would be easily intimidated by the more aggressive cornerbacks.

    2016 NFL season

    Thomas was drafted for his rookie NFL season with the New Orleans Saints on April 29, 2016 when he signed a four year contract with $2.6o million guaranteed salary.

    In fact, Thomas has had such a successful first season that many are questioning why he was not higher up in the draft picks. He quickly learned to work well with the quarterback. Aside from the season ending records, another highlight during the season was running one hundred fifty four yards against the 2017 Super Bowl qualifiers, Atlanta Falcons.

    Another question many are asking is why Thomas was not on the Pro Bowl roster. The lack of promotion is being chalked up to politics.
