Devin Thomas has fallen past what was supposed to be his worst-case landing: Tennessee. No receivers have been picked ahead of him, but at this point, even if Thomas goes in the last few picks of the first round, it's fair to say he probably would have had a significantly larger pay day in 2009. The "one-year wonder" knock seems to have some legs.

Thomas still waiting, should be up soon

Tampa at No. 20 seemed like another strong possibility for Devin Thomas, but the Bucs went the cornerback route as well. It shouldn't be long, though -- Dallas, Pittsburgh and Tennessee at 22 through 24 all flew Thomas in and have a need at wide receiver.

NFL draft update: Bills pass on Thomas

The Buffalo Bills just took cornerback Leodis McKelvin with the 11th pick, surprising many who thought they'd take Devin Thomas. The next real possibility for Devin is Chicago at No. 14. Stay tuned.
