BIO: Two-year starter at both left and right tackle. All-Academic selection in the past.
POSITIVES: Intelligent and hard-working blocker best in confined quarters. Plays with good pad level, stays square and effectively uses blocking angles. Displays solid hand technique fighting throughout the action.
NEGATIVES: Marginal athlete, lacks flexibility and can be beaten by speed-rushers. Has difficulty finishing blocks.
ANALYSIS: A consistent blocker, Thompson's understanding of the game coupled with his growth potential could help him find a role as a backup interior lineman.
