NFL Scouting Report: Moe Thompson

Posted Nov 7, 2005

Moe Thompson\DE\Grambling

Full Name: Moe Thompson         School: Grambling

Ht: 6-3     Wt: 270     40: 4.81     Yr: 4Sr

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.
