Michael Thomas hasn't forgotten about anyone who slighted him in the past. After two huge NFL seasons, he's bringing out his receipts.

Today, someone on Twitter sent Thomas a screenshot of Mike Mayock's wide receiver rankings prior to the 2016 NFL Draft. Mayock ranks Thomas in a tie for the fifth spot with Oklahoma's Sterling Shepard.

Ole Miss' Laquon Treadwell, Baylor's Corey Coleman, TCU's Josh Doctson and Notre Dame's Will Fuller are ahead of them. Looking back, that seems insane.

Thomas has blown away the guys Mayock said outranked him. His 196 receptions, 2,382 yards and 14 touchdowns are all the most for any receiver in his class.

Shepard (1,414 yards, 10 touchdowns) and Fuller (1,058 yards, nine touchdowns) have done well, but Coleman, Doctson and Treadwell have disappointed due to injuries and other reasons.

Thomas laid into Mayock for his evaluation, calling him "a complete square."

OSU wide receivers coach Zach Smith also got in on the act.

Thomas shows no signs of Thomas slowing down in the pros, especially with Drew Brees still playing at a high level. He's already one of the top wide receivers in football.

He's proven his critics wrong thus far for sure.
