Plyler on Thompson: "Thompson is a new wave of college defensive tackle. He is only 6-2, but he plays at a great pad level. He gets tremendous leverage. He will be one of the strongest players in his class. He is the type of defensive tackle you want to play behind because he is going to command double teams on just about every snap."
