BIOGRAPHY: Broke into the starting as a junior. Suspended for most of his senior season by the NCAA after using a banned dietary supplement.
POSITIVES: Thompson has an NFL body with the potential to add even more bulk and strength. His progress was slowed last season by the
NCAA suspension. Thompson is a solid developmental prospect who should be given an opportunity on a practice squad for at
least one season.
NEGATIVES: Must improve his blocking balance as he tends to be all over the place. Lacks footwork sliding out to protect the edge.
ANALYSIS: Nice-sized offensive tackle best as a run blocker. Bends his knees, gets leverage on opponents, and turns them off the line.
Stout at the point, patient in pass protection, and effectively fights with his hands. Keeps his feet moving, adjusts to blitzing
defenders, and controls them once engaged in a block.
