Nobody knows how Chiefs rookie running back De'Anthony Thomas will pan out in the NFL. However, everyone should know one thing about him now: Thomas has self-confidence in spades.
In a video posted to NFL.com recently, Thomas proclaimed that he's a type of player "that nobody's ever seen step on the football field." Then Thomas says his goals for his first season include winning Rookie of the Year, making the Pro Bowl and the Super Bowl, and leading all Chiefs in receiving, rushing, and touchdown totals.
Got all that? Now forget it, because it's obviously not happening. Thomas is buried on Kansas City's running back depth chart and is simply the Chiefs' newer version of Dexter McCluster. Thomas can catch and run, but he's not big enough to do either on a large scale. He hardly averaged 10 touches per game in college. A former track athlete and a big-play threat with some dynasty appeal, Thomas' contributions on offense should be scant this season.
