Broncos | Julius Thomas still learning
Tue, 17 Jun 2014 10:44:40 -0700
Denver Broncos TE Julius Thomas admits he was very unsure of himself in the offense last season, and he's just now starting to pick things up. "Last year, I was able to do a lot of good things. I kind of survived on self confidence and athleticism. In one game, the defense did something, and Peyton was like, 'Julius, did you see that?' And I said, 'Peyton, they got me; I had no clue what they were doing.' There are still situations I haven't been in before, and I'm still learning what to do," Thomas said. Tight ends coach Clancy Barone said Thomas is a gym rat in terms of his study habits and has high intelligence and maturity.
It's an encouraging sign for Thomas that he put up such a big season with limited knowledge of what he was doing on the field at times. The sky is the limit for him in 2014, and he'll be one of the first few tight ends off the board with Peyton Manning still at the helm in Denver.
