Strengths

Thompson is a big-time athlete. With his frame, he can match up with the NFL's biggest and fastest on offense. He excels in man coverage where he uses his quick-twitched feet and smooth hips to cover. He is good in off-man, where he can sit and wait on a move before reacting and then blanketing. He is a raw player who hasn't been exposed to top talent at this point in his career. He understands the game and is good to come and fill in run support, although he is a better tackler against the pass than he is straight up against the run. He needs to get tougher and get off blocks from bigger linemen more quickly. He would fit in right away on an NFL defense.

Weaknesses

Thompson is raw and hasn't played against top talent in college. He struggles at times in zone and can look out of sorts. He is not reliable to catch the ball, although he is around it often. He doesn't have speed that translates to the field when he is in pursuit; he needs to rely on his footwork more than he does at the current time so that he doesn't get out of position and have to chase at the next level.
