Strengths Weaknesses

Thompson lacks overwhelming strength and is too easily bullied on his heels, not effectively extending and utilizing his reach. He will get grabby with late hands and reactions and needs to eliminate the mental mistakes and immaturity as a senior to prove he can be a consistent edge blocker.

Thompson does some things well with his natural balance in space, staying patient and not overextending himself. But in order for him to have a NFL future, he needs to show considerable improvement in 2014, currently penciled in as the Sooners' starting left tackle.

--Dane Brugler (6/9/14)

Player Overview

After serving as a part-time player his first few seasons in Norman, Thompson started 11 games at left tackle last season, missing a pair of starts due to injury. He is the more athletic of the Oklahoma offensive tackles, but not as polished or reliable as Daryl Williams at this point in their development.
