A skilled pass rusher who gives maximum effort on every snap. Always working to get better. Intense. Closes well. Big frame, could grow into a defensive tackle. Good pursuit. Decent speed for his size.
Given that Thompson already looks like a college upperclassman, he will arrive at Ohio State physically ready to contribute. With the amount of depth on the defensive line already, however, it will be tough for him to get into the rotation. Rest assured, however, that he will be given a long look in camp.
