Redskins Select Brandyn Thompson, CB From Boise State

Posted by Matt Terl on April 30, 2011 – 5:35 pm

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.

    I wish I could say every great college player or Heisman trophy winner was an NFL superstar. I wish I say that 3 or 4 years is that magic number for all or most college players to reach their maturity before they’re ready for the NFL.

    I’m pleased to say that Brandyn Thompson is one of those rare individuals who, like fine wine, will get better the longer he plays in the NFL. The kid is young, fast, has good hands, but above all else he’s smart. He is one of the smartest rookies in the 2011 draft. He listens, learns and grows. That is a rare quality among modern day players.

    Keep your eyes on B.T
