    Last updated: February 7, 2017


    Childhood and high school

    Michael Thomas, who is was born on march 3, 1993 in Los Angeles, California. He attended high school at Woodland hills. One of his biggest highlights was during his senior year, where he led the state with one thousand six hundred fifty six yards. That same year, he also scored twenty one touchdowns.


    Thomas began his college football career at Ohio State in 2012 where he played in eleven games, but he only ran twenty two yards. He was redshirted his scheduled sophomore year, and he began his second season of play in 2014 as a backup. However, he wouldn't have to wait long before he was promoted to a starting position to go on to end the season with nine touchdowns and the team lead

    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. He started in the 2016 season against Oakland Raiders. The season ended on a good note with him setting team records in for a rookie in touchdowns, receiving yards, and receptions.

    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.
