It is a tough transition to the NFL for wide receivers and rarely do they fare well or even contribute to any significant degree in their inaugural season.

What Thomas is doing is special.

His work ethic, combined with Drew throwing to him are a perfect storm.

Corey Coleman was the first WR drafted, 15th overall:

In his first regular season game on September 11, 2016, Coleman recorded two receptions for 69 yards. In Week 2 against the Baltimore Ravens, Coleman made five receptions for 104 receiving yards and two touchdowns. Coleman broke his hand during practice on September 21, and was ruled out 4-6 weeks.

So as much as I like the praise of Thomas, I don't think your supporting information is quite right.

In fact, he was the 4th WR drafted.
