Chiefs sign draft pick Thomas to contract
MAY 16, 2014 4:30p ET
Thomas is a wide receiver and running back whom the Chiefs are counting on to replace Dexter McCluster, who signed with Tennessee in free agency. The true value in Thomas is that in addition to playing multiple positions on offense, he can also return punts and kicks.
His stock dropped after running a 4.5 40-yard dash at the NFL combine, but his speed and elusiveness made him one of the nation's most dynamic playmakers during his career at Oregon.
