Signed by Denver as a draft choice 8/1/10
Demaryius Thomas was drafted by the Denver Broncos 22nd overall in the 2010 NFL Draft. Thomas had 8 receptions for 97 yards and scored his first NFL touchdown in his NFL debut in a September 19, 2010 game against the Seattle Seahawks. Thomas battled injuries his rookie season, missing six games.
On February 10, 2011 Thomas tore his achilles tendon while working out and was expected to miss a majority, if not the entirety, of the 2011 season, Thomas was surprisingly activated from the Physically Unable to Perform List on September 3, 2011 prior to the start of the season as Broncos GM Brian Xanders said Thomas had responded to rehab well and was "ready to go."
On January 8, 2012 Thomas caught 4 passes for 204 yards and 1 touchdown in his playoff debut, setting an NFL Playoff single game record for yards per catch (51.0). He caught the game-winning, 80-yard touchdown pass on the opening play of overtime to beat the Pittsburgh Steelers in the AFC Wild Card game, 29-23. It was the first overtime playoff game ever contested under the new rules, but Denver's score ended the game because the rules only allowed the other team a possession if the coin-toss winner proceeded to kick a field goal (or, of course, score zero points). The play took 11 seconds, and is the fastest ending to an overtime in NFL history to date. It is also the longest playoff overtime touchdown in NFL history.

Broncos' Demaryius Thomas, added to AFC's Pro Bowl roster
Many of his teammates believed Broncos wide receiver Demaryius Thomas had done enough in the 2012 season to earn a Pro Bowl trip to Hawaii.
Monday, Thomas was notified he would indeed board a plane to participate in Sunday's all-star game. Thomas, who was fourth in the NFL with 1,434 yards receiving this season, was named as an injury replacement for the AFC team. Thomas replaced Patriots wide receiver Wes Welker. It is the first Pro Bowl trip.
Thomas had seven 100-yard games this season, his first to play in all 16 games since he was a first-round pick in 2010.
Denver Broncos wide receiver Demaryius Thomas carries the ball for a 71-yard touchdown ahead of Pittsburgh Steelers Troy Tolamalu (43) during the third quarter of an NFL football game, Sunday, Sept. 9, 2012, in Denver. The Broncos won 31-19. The throw to Thomas was Peyton Manning's first as a Bronco and the 400th of his career.
Thomas caught Manning's 55th touchdown, which set an NFL record for the most touchdowns thrown by a quarterback in a single season. Manning also broke the single season passing yardage mark on that same pass to Thomas. Recording 92 catches for 1430 yards and 14 touchdowns during the 2013 regular season, Thomas was again voted to the Pro Bowl in 2013. He was selected to the Associated Press All-Pro team for the first time in his career.
In Super Bowl XLVIII, Thomas had 13 receptions for 118 yards and a touchdown, but the Broncos lost 43-8 to the Seattle Seahawks.
On October 5, 2014 against Arizona Cardinals Thomas made 8 receptions for 226 receiving yards, breaking the old franchise record for receiving yards in a single game held by Shannon Sharpe. On October 19, 2014 Thomas caught Peyton Manning's all-time record-breaking 509th touchdown pass.
On July 15, 2015, Thomas signed a 5-year, $70 million contract extension with the Broncos, just hours before the deadline for franchise players. The Broncos finished the season 12-4 and earned the #1 seed for the AFC playoffs. The Broncos beat the Steelers and Patriots to make it to Super Bowl 50 where they defeated the Carolina Panthers 24-10 to give Thomas his first Super Bowl title. Thomas had 4 receptions in the Super Bowl.
