"Tommy was the best player on our board. We were excited about him," director of player personnel Eric DeCosta said. "It's unusual to get a receiver with that kind of size who can run like that. Ozzie alluded to another size/speed guy that we developed a long time ago -- Michael Jackson. These kinds of guys are rare at times, the measurable. If you have a chance to get a guy like that and you are in the right position in the draft, it's probably a good thing, and he was the guy. We hadn't addressed the position. There were some other guys that we liked at the receiver position that got taken, and he was clearly the best guy at the time for us to take."
