No. 3 overall, Cincinnati Bengals, 1979
Nicknamed "The Throwin' Samoan" in his college days at Washington State, Thompson went third overall to the Bengals but played sparingly behind starter Ken Anderson. In four seasons with Cincinnati, Thompson started just five games, but threw 19 interceptions. Even when he was given the starting job after a trade to Tampa Bay in 1983, Thompson struggled to make an impact. He finished his career with a 4-17 record as a starter.
