Deonte Thompson Scouting Report

"Wiry, first step quick safety with length that plays angry and relishes delivering a punishing blow but needs better discipline and size to hold up"



Sudden, angry safety with length and ball skills. First step quick and gets downhill in a flash. Comfortable in single high and in the box. Relishes collisions and sacrifices his body to make the play. Impressive wing span and shows quick hands and ball awareness. Sheds quickly. Flashes good open field tackling ability.



Aggressive but sloppy technique tackler that dangerously lowers his head or fails to break down correctly. Has a burst but lacks make up speed. Reckless on contact and is susceptible to injuries. Undersized frame. Just a one year starter.



Thompson is a high upside guy with great length, aggression and burst. He can be a playmaker on the ball but needs more discipline. He's a reckless tackler that flies in at a 100 and can be hit or miss as a last line defender. His technique is sloppy and often not safe. He's versatile and comfortable playing the back half but is more suited closer to the los. He's chippy, aggressive, and relishes delivering a punishing blow. Opted to cash in after his one year as a starter.
