TEAMS: Oregon Ducks
Tweet   During his three seasons with the Oregon Ducks De’Anthony Thomas was among the more explosive players in college football. He amassed 1,890 rushing yards (26 TD), 1,296 receiving yards (15 TD), and 2,159 combined kick and punt return yards (5 TD). Thomas was a legitimate threat to score each time he touched the ball and his 278 points is good for fourth in school history.   On Sunday Oregon’s Mr. Do Everything announced he would forgo his senior season and make himself eligible for this year’s NFL Draft.   “I am officially withdrawing from the University of Oregon to pursue a professional career in the NFL,” Thomas said in a prepared statement Sunday. “I want to express my deepest appreciation and thanks to the University and all of my teammates, coaches and fans.  I look forward to staying connected to the University and visiting the sidelines as often as possible.”   While Thomas’ size (5’9″ 169 lbs) may be of caution for some teams there won’t be any questions about his speed.     NFLDraftScout.com currently has Thomas No. 20 on their running back board.
