Demaryius Thomas worked out for 10 NFL teams on Sunday at a closed session in Atlanta.
This was his first workout since breaking his left foot in February while training for the NFL combine.
Thomas, a wide receiver from Georgia Tech, said his foot is about 90 percent healthy. He participated in some cone drills on Sunday that weren’t timed, and ran routes for the scouts. Thomas said he caught every ball thrown to him by Damarius Bilbo, a former wide receiver at Georgia Tech who was the quarterback on Sunday. Thomas also interviewed with several teams after the workout.
“It felt good,” Thomas said. “I’m glad it’s over with now.”
Thomas caught 46 passes for 1,154 yards and eight touchdowns last season for the Yellow Jackets. At 6-3, 230 pounds, Thomas has the size and speed (he was timed at 4.38 seconds at a training camp in Arizona) that NFL teams say they covet.
He is projected to be a first-round pick in the NFL draft, which begins on Thursday in New York. He will be flying to the Big Apple on Tuesday with his dad, Bobby, as well as his uncle James and aunt Shirley, who helped raise him, and a cousin for the event.
In two more impressive performances on Sunday, Tech softball player Jen Yee tied the school and ACC record for home runs in a season when she hit her 24th in a 4-0 win against Boston College at Mewborn Field.
Yee is tied with Whitney Haller, who set the mark in 2006.
The baseball team swept Clemson with an 11-3 win on Sunday.
