Brian Thomas Jr

Brian Thomas Jr. emerged as a standout at the NFL Combine in March, solidifying his status as a fan favorite. He clocked an impressive 4.33-second 40-yard dash, placing him among the fastest receivers. Next Gen Stats further cemented his athletic prowess with a score of 93, ranking him second-best at the combine. His explosiveness extends beyond long runs, evidenced by a quick 1.5-second 10-yard split. Standing at a commanding 6'3" and 209 pounds, he brings good size to the table. While his vertical jump of 38.5 inches might leave some wanting a bit more for his height, his overall athleticism is undeniable.

2023 saw Brian Thomas Jr. explode onto the scene, earning third-team All-American and second-team All-SEC honors. He led the entire FBS in receiving touchdowns with a staggering 17 while racking up 68 receptions for 1,177 yards. With his impressive physical traits and skillset, Thomas has all the makings of an elite NFL outside receiver. However, a key question remains: will he be available when the Bills pick at 28th overall? If General Manager Brandon Beane covets Thomas, a trade-up in the first round might be necessary to secure him.
