WR Thomas a Player to Watch in Training Camp

Yahoo! Sports says that one player to watch in Jags Camp this Summer is wide out Mike Thomas, who should get a shot to play quite a bit:

Wide receiver Mike Thomas: With veteran Torry Holt gone, the No. 2 wide receiver spot is Thomas’ job to lose. The 5-8, 198-pound second-year receiver saw action in 14 games with four starts a year ago. He established a franchise record for receptions by a rookie (48). But he’ll need to do even more this season in order to take the attention away from No. 1 receiver Mike Sims-Walker. Thomas has the speed, but his size is still a concern. He showed he can be a threat on the end-arounds with 86 yards on 12 carries, including a season-best 22-yarder. The team likes that duo combination of a pass receiver/end-around threat, but Thomas must show he can do it on a consistent basis.
