NFL Market Share Production

Metric Recommendation: The old adage physical ability only takes you so far is true, but so is physical ability can get you a fat contract once. Julius Thomas has most of the physical attributes of an All-Pro tight end. However, his overall production in the NFL along with his lack of explosiveness make him good not great. He benefited a lot from a tremendous group of receivers at Denver with an Elite QB who could find one v one matchups. But I would expect Thomas to continue to be an average to slightly above average tight end producer if he goes to a team that uses him properly.

And being average in the NFL, is not an insult.
