Five Fun Facts About Demaryius Thomas Of The Broncos

Filed under: 5 Fun Facts — by Mark on January 29, 2014

Demaryius Thomas has proven to have the speed and route running to be one of the better receivers in the league. He also has great hands too, allowing him to catch the short screen, the quick slant, and of course the deep bomb. Here is a look at five fun facts about this awesome wide receiver!

The Most Ever!

In a game against Duke in 2008, Georgia Tech wide receiver Demaryius Thomas caught nine passes for 230 yards. This was his best game in college and was the second most receiving yards in a single game in school history ever.

Two Smart Pass Catchers

Coming out in the 2010 NFL Draft, Demaryius Thomas had the second highest score on the pre-draft Wonderlic test given to all college players heading to the NFL. The only player to score higher than him on the test was future teammate Eric Decker.

Whoops!

Demaryius Thomas fumbled the ball three times as a rookie while catching 22 passes and returning 16 kickoffs. The next season in 2011, he wouldn’t fumble the ball at all.

His First Game Ever

Demaryius Thomas caught his very first TD pass in his very first NFL game. He and Kyle Orton teamed up for a 21 yard touchdown in that 2010 win over the Seahawks. He finished the game with eight catches for 97 yards which were both the most on the team that day.

The First Long One

When Demaryius Thomas hauled in an 80 yard touchdown pass in overtime of a playoff victory over the Steelers on January 8, 2012, it was the longest TD reception of his career and his first of 50 yards or more. It was thrown to him by Tim Tebow.
