Yeah, Benn is probably not going to be available in the 2nd round, as Phin said, which for me makes Thomas the best WR available at that spot. I'd rank him the number 3 WR right now, and number 2 in terms of potential.
Benn comes a little more polished, but Thomas has the bigger upisde with his speed, physicality/YAC ability, and ability to go up and make the catch over a defender.
That said, if he is unable to run at his Pro Day, I'd be surprised to see him go before round 3. A lot of people like to compare him to Anquan Boldin; I actually think that's a pretty good comparison; maybe not so much in terms of size/speed, but in the way he plays the game, and in the transition he'll have to the NFL.
Isn't Benn slow? Slow for a Wr that is.
