Former Washington State safety Jalen Thompson worked out in front of more than two dozen teams this afternoon in Los Angeles, and the reviews have been positive.

Twenty-six teams were on hand for Thompson’s workout, including the director of scouting for the Houston Texans. He measured 5103 and 186 pounds with hands at 8 3/8 inches and an arm length of 31 ¼ inches.

Thompson hit 33.5 inches in the vertical jump and 10-foot-4 in the broad jump and completed 11 reps on the bench press. As I reported on Twitter, his initial 40 time came in around 4.47 seconds with his second clocking at 4.56 seconds.

The other marks included 11.68 seconds in the 60-yard shuttle, 4.16 seconds in the short shuttle and 6.98 seconds in the three-cone. The position drills were run primarily by the Atlanta Falcons, though other teams stepped in and requested specific drills.

Thompson is meeting with the Green Bay Packers this afternoon, as the team has shown a lot of interest in the safety. Other teams lining up for Thompson included the New England Patriots, Los Angeles Rams, Miami Dolphins, Indianapolis Colts and Arizona Cardinals.

Stamped as a fourth-round prospect by several scouts this spring, the feeling is that Thompson will get drafted somewhere in the later rounds during Wednesday’s supplemental draft, which begins at 1 p.m.
