2010 Draft: Rnd 1 Pick 22
Shelton Sampson reminds us of Demaryius Thomas with his size, vertical speed and ability to make contested catches on jump balls. Sampson is one of the bigger top wide receivers in the 2023 cycle at 6-foot-3.5 190 pounds with 4.4 speed. Thomas was a touch heavier at 210 pounds as a recruit, but the explosive ability and ball skills are similar at the same stage.
