promised myself I would not write about Devin Thomas today because we've written a ton about him already and we aren't even a week into training camp.

But while speaking to people I trust in the organization last night, three separate sources praised Thomas for his improved approach. They told me he has been attentive in his position group meetings, works hard in drills and knows the playbook, three things that could not be said about him as a rookie last season.

Barring injury or regression, they said, expect Thomas to be the starting Z receiver, or flanker, opposite top wideout Santana Moss, the X receiver, or split end. They said it is clear that's the direction the coaching staff would prefer to go, which would enable the Skins to move last year's No. 2 receiver, Antwaan Randle El, to a full-time slot receiver role.

Thomas and Malcolm Kelly are the key (well, besides the OLine) to the Redskins success. We saw last season that relying on essentially just Santana Moss does not work. The Redskins offense desperately needs a secondary threat at receiver. In addition t either of these two, I think Fred Davis stepping up can add a new dimension as well.
