The Redskins selected Boise State CB Brandyn Thompson with the 213th pick in the NFL Draft, and I’ll be honest: I don’t know much at all about the 2010 Fiesta Bowl Defensive MVP. What I’ve read since the pick, though, reminds me an awful lot of a smaller, slightly slower DeAngelo Hall. Here, check this out, from CBSSports.com:
He’s a bit of a gambler, and while that’s led to a few embarrassing mistakes, it’s also led to two career multi-interception games, including a three-pick performance against Hawaii as a sophomore. By that second season, Thompson was already full of experience after being one of only five true freshman Broncos to play in 2007.
That said, SI.com gave him a glowing review at the Shrine Game practices, so maybe he’s something of a project.
