BIOGRAPHY: Four-year starter used at both tackle and guard at Abilene Christian. All-Conference selection as a senior.
POSITIVES: Thompson is a versatile lineman, experienced at every position on the offensive line. He possesses the build to be used as
an interior blocker, and he could find a home as an inexpensive backup if he improves his mechanics and adds more strength
to his lower body.
NEGATIVES: Shows marginal skill in motion, and does not move well on his feet. Narrow base blocker, not a natural knee bender.
ANALYSIS: Strong, small-area lineman best as a position blocker. Quickly gets into blocks, stays square, and fights with his hands throughout
the action. Strong in his upper body, turns defenders off the ball, and then seals them from the action. Works hard until
the whistle blows.
