Michael Thomas, Wide Receiver 

The Saints invested big in Michael Thomas, the receiver who has impressed early from Ohio State. So, naturally we all look forward to see what he can do as the Saints begin to practice harder at training camp. There is no doubt that he has the talent to make an immediate impact for the New Orleans Saints, but it will be interesting to see just where he lands on the depth chart.

He has to fight with Willie Snead and Brandon Coleman (presumably) for playing time and targets in 2016. That’s two areas that shouldn’t be a problem since all the receivers on the Saints roster usually have a role to play throughout the season.

Thomas seems like the perfect guy to start opposite of Cooks with his 6-foot-3 stature and amazing hands. He will do everything to show just that, as he and Brees try to get their timing together at training camp.
