Demaryius Thomas Healthy, Improving Route Running

During his first two seasons in the league, Denver Broncos wide receiver Demaryius Thomas didn't need to do much route running. At least in 2011, much of that was due to the presence of Tim Tebow at quarterback, but Peyton Manning has changed all of that. At the start of training camp, cornerback Champ Bailey has definitely seen an improvement in the third-year wide receiver (via DenverBroncos.com):

"(Route-running) was the biggest thing for him because he’s a bigger guy," Bailey said. "Bigger guys struggle running routes most of the time. He’s on top of it now. He looks like one of the best now because he’s running his routes as crisp and can be and he’s catching the ball."

Thomas is considered one of the top players for a breakout season. With a multi-winning league MVP quarterback throwing passes to him, Thomas is sure to improve upon 2011's 32 receptions for 551 yards and four touchdowns.
