I wouldn't take Mike Mayock to serious either for the simple fact he had the nerves to rank 5 guys higher then me coming out the draft. And we all know how that worked out 🤷🏾♂️. Who Dat tho 🙂 #letscallaspadeaspade— Michael Thomas (@Cantguardmike) September 5, 2019
Mayock ranked prospects in his former gig as a draft analyst for the NFL Network.
On Wednesday, Brown and Mayock got into a heated exchange, and the team is planning to suspend its star receiver, league sources told ESPN's Adam Schefter.
Thomas, who has been fueled by doubters throughout his football life, was in fact the sixth receiver drafted in 2016. He was drafted 47th overall out of Ohio State -- behind Corey Coleman, Will Fuller V, Josh Doctson, Laquon Treadwell and Sterling Shepard.
Thomas proved a lot of teams (and draft analysts) wrong when he shattered the NFL record with 321 catches in his first three seasons. He became the highest-paid receiver in NFL history last month on a per-year basis, signing a five-year extension worth between $96.25 million to $100 million.
