Ian Thomas has one of the best stories of the draft. After losing both of his parents before the age of 10, Thomas was raised by his older brother in a tough part of Baltimore. He became a multi-sport high school star, attended junior college for two years and eventually landed with the Indiana Hoosiers.
After a quiet first season in Indiana, Thomas caught 25 passes for 376 yards and five touchdowns as a senior.
His 4.74 40-yard dash tied for fifth amongst tight ends at the combine. Despite a limited college resume, Thomas could be a diamond in the rough.
