Draft 2018

Pick Analysis: Thompson spent six years in Baton Rouge, missing two years with injuries (2014-torn ACL, 2016-broken leg) and redshirting his first year on campus while recovering from a shoulder injury from high school. The four-star recruit played in 13 games as a safety and on special teams in 2012 (11 tackles). Thompson started five of 10 games played in 2013, missing the final two contests due to the knee injury that kept him out the following year. In 2015, Thompson started three of nine games played at free safety (15 tackles). Defensive coordinator Dave Aranda moved Thompson to a coverage linebacker spot for the 2017 season, and he had his best season (eight starts in 12 games, 43 stops, seven for loss, six sacks) despite not being with the team for the Citrus Bowl. His father, Tony Thompson, was a receiver at Texas A&M from 1985 to 1987 and his mother, Dyan Webber, was a track All-American at Texas Southern.
