Pos: 
Large, wide-bodied college tackle who projects to guard at the next level. Keeps his head on a swivel, displays good awareness and quickly picks up stunts, twists and blitzes. Sets with a wide base, works to bend his knees and quickly gets into blocks. Strong in his entire body and easily knocks defenders from their angles of attack. Keeps his feet moving, keeps his hands active and controls opponents once engaged at the point. Sinks his butt well at the line of scrimmage and blocks with leverage.
Neg: 
Only good in a small area and lumbers around the field. Displays limited range.
Analysis: 
Thompson has been dismissed by scouts but has the body type and strength to get consideration at guard at the next level.
