Kansas City Chiefs could have drafted the Rookie of the Year

When the Kansas city Chiefs selected De’Anthony Thomas they knew exactly what they were getting. The Chiefs were getting a speedster, with “Man” abilities to make people miss. Well that little back might lack size but definitely not confidence.

Thomas told that his goals for his rookie season include winning Rookie of the Year, leading Kansas City in a slew of offensive categories and making a trip to the Super Bowl. What gives Thomas the confidence to set such bold goals for himself?

“I’m a player that nobody’s ever seen step on the football field,” Thomas said.

Could Thomas have a year like Cordarrelle Patterson had in 2013? Patterson was able to rush, catch and return multiple touchdowns. If Thomas puts up similar numbers to Patterson, there is no doubt in my mind he could win ROY, but until that happens it is just talk.
