Brandon Marshall is pretty good). That is why they have selected Julius Thomas. This guy is a powerhouse and an Antonio Gates proto-type. He played college basketball and college football making him a freak athlete. Standing at 6'5 this man can post up on any safety guarding him. He has the potential to lead the league in touchdowns and become the best Tight End in football today. Another bright spot is his blocking ability. In a awful offense that is run-first, your gonna need a great blocker.

"I've had some good plays, and I think I'll continue to be able to make big plays, but there are certain times I wasn't able to make plays, or I got confused or I made a mistake. Me personally, I don't like to allow that for myself."

" The thing about being a tight end is that you need to catch like a receiver, but block like a lineman "
