Ian Thomas, TE (Indiana), 6-4/259
Selected 101st overall by Carolina
Thomas projects as the future starting tight end for the Panthers when Greg Olsen eventually retires and follow his true calling as a broadcaster. A two-year junior-college prospect before transferring to Indiana, Thomas has enough speed to threaten the seam on vertical routes and is athletic enough to assume he can develop into a weapon in the short-to-intermediate area. Not well regarded as a run blocker, the 21-year-old is unlikely to see enough snaps this season for fantasy value in redraft leagues, but in dynasty formats he's an intriguing option.
Keke Coutee, WR (Texas Tech), 5-10/181

The Texans might have one of the league's fastest wide receiving corps, with Coutee joining Will Fuller as another thin, lanky wideout capable of taking the top off defenses. While DeAndre Hopkins and Fuller seem locked in as No. 1 and 2, respectively, on the depth chart, it's not hard to envision Coutee competing with the likes of Bruce Ellington and Braxton Miller to start in three wide receiver sets.
