Good: Dymonte Thomas

With injuries to Will Parks and Su’a Cravens, the safety position has been in dire need of a playmaker outside of the starters. On Friday, we got to see how solid Dymonte Thomas can be as the nickel safety. His abilities to play a position that has been suited for Su’a Cravens. Coming up to stop the running game, covering the problem pass catchers, Thomas has been able to do it all.

I honestly believe that his performance on Friday has earned him a spot on the final 53-man roster. The secondary has been thin during the preseason. Having a player like Dymonte Thomas who can come into the game and make an impact will benefit the Denver Broncos defense.

The coaching staff will determine if he needs to play in the final preseason game. If he is a lock, I would fully expect Su’a Cravens to play the majority of the game in Arizona. If the coaches decide they want to see more of Thomas, then perhaps they will give him at least a half.

However you look at it, the chances of Dymonte Thomas making the final roster seem like it is a done deal given the situation of the secondary.
