Former Georgia Tech wide receiver Demaryius Thomas was selected by the Denver Broncos with the No. 22 pick in the first round of Thursday’s NFL draft in New York.

Thomas caught 46 passes for 1,154 yards and eight touchdowns last season. He averaged a whopping 25.1 yards per catch to be the first wide receiver selected on Thursday.

At 6-3, 224 pounds, Thomas has the size and speed (4.38 in the 40-yard dash) that NFL teams coveted.

He wasn’t able to participate in the NFL combine in Indianapolis in February because he broke a bone in his foot while training.

However, he was able to hold a workout on Sunday in Atlanta where he ran an untimed cone drill and caught passes for scouts from 10 teams.

Former teammate Derrick Morgan was selected by the Tennessee Titans with the No. 16 pick.

He is the most recent first-round selection from Tech since wide receiver Calvin Johnson was chosen by Detroit with the No. 2 pick in 2007.
