Thomas. He will be the most athletic and physically talented WR Manning will ever have to work with. If Manning is back to his old ways, I can see Thomas having a very, very good year.
A win next week and all is forgotten.

I like Thomas better - if he can stay healthy he should put up solid numbers. Decker is also solid and with Manning at the helm there will be plenty of balls to spread around so he should also have good production.

If Thomas wants too and Peyton is able, the sky is the limit. Decker may have a higher basement, but certainly has a lower ceiling.

Agree with this. Though while I do agree with it, I think it's notable to point out he had 8 TD's last year in spotty play with subpar QB play. Just a slight increase and he's looking at double digit TD's and with a healthy Peyton he should easily amass over 1100 yards. He's got a pretty high ceiling himself so I don't want it to sound like he's some average WR even though I agree with the premise.

All of the above is true, however it's worth pointing out that Decker is the much better value with where he will likely be drafted in comparison with the early pick you would have to use to get Thomas.

Very true. Decker should be able to be had as a later round guy, whereas Thomas is going to be on everyone's radar.

Broncos wide receiver Demaryius Thomas out to prove he can be a No. 1 guy

The Denver Post


After his first full training camp practice in nearly two years, Demaryius Thomas escaped to the weight room, then stripped off his white No. 88 practice jersey and cleats. He walked gingerly through the parking lot in his socks, and slowly lowered himself onto a picnic table bench.

He was exhausted in the best way possible.

Thomas made one of the biggest catches in Broncos history, catapulting him to the verge of stardom, as clips of his 80-yard game-winning catch against Pittsburgh replayed over and over throughout the offseason. The play capped a stellar end of the season for Thomas, giving Broncos fans — and his coaches — a glimpse at his enormous potential. Yet plenty of questions remain about the young

Thomas is technically a veteran as he heads into his third professional season, yet he's participating in basically his first training camp after foot and Achilles tendon injuries kept him on the sidelines and in the training room for most or all of the past two camps.

"It's a big step because I've been hurt my past two years, so to be able to go all the way through (the offseason) and start training camp, it is exciting," Thomas said.

It is possible no position group is under more pressure this camp than the wide receivers. They're learning a new offense under a demanding quarterback. The terminology and many of the passing routes remain the same from what Thomas, Eric Decker and Matt Willis learned back in 2010, but the tempo and precision is far different under Peyton Manning than it was under Kyle Orton.

Gonna be interesting to see how the battle between Thomas & Decker plays out in training camp. Of course in a Peyton Manning led offense, no reason both these guys can't be successful.
