Pos: Athletic pass rusher who can be a disruptive
force. Quick off the snap, plays with good pad level and consistently in the
opponents backfield. Displays an array of moves and hand techniques getting off blocks.
Agile, immediately changes direction or alters his angle of attack. Plays
with balance and rarely off his feet.
Neg: Does not go hard 100% of the time. Stymied at
the point by lesser opponents. Lazy and chided for poor work habits. Labeled
as an underachiever. A liability in run defense. Involvement in off-the-field incidents
led to his dismissal from South Carolina.
Analysis: Possessing terrific inmates skills, Thompson is
a forceful defender tough to stop when on his game. Needs to quickly change his
ways and prove maturity to have a serious shot at sticking on an NFL roster.
