Shaq Thompson

School: Washington
Position: OLB
Bio: Three-year starter who's lined up at safety, running back and outside linebacker. All-conference selection as a senior when he was the recipient of the Paul Horning Award. Defensive totals last year included 81 tackles, 2.5 tackles for loss and 1 sack. Also added 405 yards rushing and 2 TDs.
Positive: Versatile college prospect with a undetermined position at the next level. Instinctive defender who displays a quick change of direction and the ability to immediately alter his angle of attack. Fast moving to every area, possesses a tremendous closing burst and plays with an aggressive attitude. Remains disciplined with assignments, stays with the action and shows ability in space. Gets depth on pass drops, breaks down well and slides off blocks. Fires to the ball working to make plays and sells out on the blitz. Also a hard-charging running back who displays strength in his lower body, keeps his feet moving on contact and falls forward for the extra yardage. Gets out front and blocks when necessary.
Negative: Struggles getting off blocks at linebacker and easily caught up in the trash. Not effective as receiver out of the backfield when lined up at running back.
Analysis: Thompson was productive on the college level but has size and scheme limitations for Sunday football. He's built like a safety but plays like a defensive front seven defender. He may ultimately line up as a one-gap linebacker or potentially on the inside of a 3-4 defense which allows him to run freely to the ball.
