Pos: 
Large pocket passer who failed to meet expectations the past two years. Patient, goes through progressions and takes the underneath outlet if nothing is available downfield. Puts touch on screen passes and effectively sets up shorter throws. Keeps his eyes downfield, has a big-time arm and displays speed and velocity on throws. Tosses some beautiful deep passes right on the money.
Neg: 
Crumbles under the rush and makes some poor choices. Can be all over the place with throws. Struggled with injuries the past two years.
Analysis: 
Thorson looks the part and occasionally plays to it but never truly took his game to the next level at any point the past two years. He's a developmental prospect with big upside but needs a lot of work from the ground up.
