The Denver Broncos have a great selection of young players on their roster heading into 2018, however Dymonte Thomas is the guy we have to look out for

As the Denver Broncos off-season continues to loom over our heads, I believe we need look at some players who can make an impact in 2018.

Dymonte Thomas was the first player that popped up into my head, and for good reason.

Thomas appeared in three games for the Broncos in 2017. He has the opportunity to appear in more games heading into 2018.

Thomas will be a second year safety who can provide versatility to the already exhilarating secondary.

An undrafted rookie from Michigan in 2017, Thomas was able to earn a spot on the Broncos practice squad after an impressive Week 4 preseason display.

For many undrafted players, the fourth week of the preseason is the make it- or break it week.

Most players find themselves off the roster or bouncing around practice squads.

Thomas took advantage of every rep in this game.

Against the Arizona Cardinals, Thomas intercepted a pass and returned it for a score.

His break-away speed and maneuverability were automatic eye openers for football enthusiasts that know the game.

With Denver’s depth in the secondary, making the active roster would be a difficult task for Thomas. He remained on the Denver Broncos practice squad throughout the season, waiting for his opportunity.

When the Broncos’ young stud safety Justin Simmons was placed on injured reserve, Thomas finally got his chance.

Thomas Looks To 2018

Thomas saw action against the Colts, Redskins, and the Chiefs to close out the regular season.

He accounted for six tackles in the Broncos 27-24 loss to Kansas City in the regular season finale.

With Darian Stewart entering his 9th season, the Broncos could utilize Thomas and Jamal Carter more in 2018.

Stewart has been a consistent leader to the young guys in the secondary, which I believe allows Thomas and Carter to contribute right away.

His 6’2″ 190 pound frame makes him a candidate to see the field, potentially opposite of Justin Simmons on situational downs.

The Broncos have a history of finding undrafted gems, and I will make the bold take stating they have one in Dymonte Thomas.

Training camp looks to provide us with some amazing positional battles which will feature Thomas, Carter, Will Parks, and other young players in the secondary.
