Dymonte Thomas, S

The Broncos may have found another gem in the undrafted free agent class in Michigan safety Dymonte Thomas, who played just over 70 snaps down the stretch last season and played pretty  darn well.

Thomas, like Carter, was utilized a little in the box as well as back deep in coverage, and notched a hit on the quarterback.

He picked off a pass in the preseason and showed his deep speed, taking it back for a touchdown. That type of playmaking ability was on display enough throughout the preseason and training camp that Denver decided to keep him on the practice squad initially, and then sign him to the active roster late in the season.

I think for 2018, Thomas will absolutely factor in to the team’s secondary plans. He did a great job when given opportunities.
