Overview

Thompson is a converted defensive tackle that only has one year of experience at offensive guard. He is still learning the nuances of the position, but has enough natural ability to possibly contribute at the next level. He has quick feet and good length, but he is a waist bender that lunges at defenders. He also struggles to generate a push in the running game due to poor leverage and takes too many false steps when attacking the second level. He will not always locate his blocking assignment, but he does keep his head on a swivel. Thompson looks to be a rookie free agent.

Analysis

Strengths

Thompson is tall with a thick lower half. Possesses a quick first step and good lateral range to pull around the edge. Delivers a strong initial punch and uses his long arms to get inside defenders. Plays with a wide base to thwart the bull rush. Fights to sustain blocks.

Weaknesses

Does not sink his hips and lunges at defenders making him susceptible to counter moves. Plays too high and does not generate a good push in the running game. Does not show the awareness to consistently recognize stunts and blitzes. Not fluid enough to make blocks in space. Lacks a mean streak and is more of a finesse blocker.
