Dolphins Go Running Back with Pick #62 Taking Kansas State’s Thomas

The Dolphins knowing that the RB spot may be in flux for them with Ronnie Brown and Rickey Williams’ future in doubt pulled off a solid pick in round two with the drafting of Kansas State running back Daniel Thomas.

Here’s a tidbit on Thomas from NFL Draft Scout:

2010: Last season’s Big 12 Offensive Newcomer of the Year, Thomas recorded the second-most rushing yards in a season at K-State with 1,585 this season, which is also a new record for a senior back, and ranked eighth nationally. He also led the Big 12 with 19 rushing touchdowns, one shy of the school record. His 2,850 career rushing yards rank second all-time at K-State, while his 30 rushing touchdowns rank fourth, his 12 career 100-yard performances rank second and his 269-yard outing at North Texas in the 2010 regular season finale was the third-most ever by a Wildcat running back…2009: Earned Big 12 Offensive Newcomer of the Year honors, while also being named First Team All-Big 12… Named a midseason All-Big 12 performer by Phil Steele
