BIO: Led the squad as a senior with 69/1/10 after a junior campaign of 40/5/7. Started during his sophomore season totaling 34/5/11. Performed well during Blue-Gray practices.
POSITIVES: Athletic corner with solid cover skills. Quick footed, stays with receivers out from their breaks and positions himself to make a play. Runs with opponents down the field and gets vertical to defend the throw. A demon on special teams that also defends the run.
NEGATIVES: Lacks the fluid backpedal and sits back on routes, getting lazy with his technique. Does not always display a good sense of timing.
ANALYSIS: A productive collegiate corner, Thompson should be considered a sleeper in this draft. His cover skills along with special teams ability could see him garner significant playing as a rookie.
