Pick Analysis: In early October of 2011, it looked as though Thompson?s football career could be over. After struggling with back pain in the spring and fall camp, he took a hit that broke two vertebrae in his back. But he rehabbed diligently over the next several months, somehow making his way back to the field for the start of the 2012 season. That sort of toughness, added to his sprinter?s speed, makes Thompson a potential late-round pick as a change of pace back and return specialist in the NFL ? if he stays healthy.

Thompson was considered one of the top all-purpose players in the country coming out of Florida?s Madison County High School, rushing for over 2,300 yards and 33 touchdowns while leading his team to a state title as a senior. He got on the field right away for the Seminoles, playing 11 games (23-120, two TD rush, 6-150 on kick returns), missing two due to a death in the family. Thompson started six of 14 games in 2010, leading the team in rushing (134-845, 6 TD rushing; 19-155, TD receiving) and earning the team?s Chick-fil-A Bowl MVP award with 25 rushes for 147 yards and a touchdown in the win over South Carolina.
