Brandon Thompson   # DT

Height: 6-2   Weight: 315   Age: 28

Born: 10/19/1989 Thomasville , GA

College: Clemson

Experience: 6th season

High School: Thomasville HS [GA]









Draft 2012

Pick No.93

Selected By: Cincinnati Bengals

Round: 3

Pick (Overall): 30 (93)

Pick Analysis: Thompson brings value to the NFL in that he can play both defensive tackle or nose tackle at the next level. With his size and athletic ability, Thompson has been a disruptive force for Clemson. He plays stout against the run and will plug the hole well for an NFL team. He is able to find the ball as a defender and is effective after the snap in making plays in the backfield. He doesn't bring a ton of pass-rush ability, but he will be able to serve as a strong presence up front. He has the talent to warrant a late first or early second-round pick.
