Thompson has good NFL size at 6’2″ 205 lbs. Thompson has a wide catch radius and good hands. A natural runner with the ball in his hands, Thompson is never an easy tackle, always fights for more yardage, and has pig-blay ability any time that he touches the ball. He accounted for a large part of Toledo’s passing game before his injury and he caught a majority of balls thrown his way. An athlete with high potential and an above-average floor, Thompson could work his way back into late Day 1-Day 2 conversation with another strong year.

An athletic player suffering an ankle injury is something that you never want to see and the recovery has been long and tough so Thompson is a mild unknown. Thompson was best friends with former Toledo QB Logan Woodside and with his moving on to the NFL, it will be interesting to see how he performs with new QB Mitchell Guadagni at the helm. More of an athlete than a polished route runner, he also wasn’t asked to run many routes outside of hitches, posts, and go routes.

A well-rounded rceiver with good size, Thompson looks like the type of receiver that will translate well to the NFL. If he can return to his form before his injury he can rise up draft boards again and can bring himself into early draft conversation again. Developing a chemistry with Mitchell Guadagni will be key to both his success and the success of the team.
