Well, the last Oklahoma tackle they took worked out pretty well. Like this pick, little-to-no risk this late, very high floor player who would at worst be a good backup.

They're definitely trying to push Loadholt and Kalil. Or maybe this guy can play guard?

I like it. Nice low-risk, high-reward player late in the draft.

He has the potential to be a long-term starter, and show's flashes of being a pro-bowl player, but he lacks consistency, and sometimes get's knocks on how much effort he puts into playing.

Great project player.

Chris Tomasson ‏@christomasson 4m4 minutes ago
Thompson was born in Germany while his father was stationed abroad as a paratrooper in the U.S. Army. Sounds like a good character guy.

Thompson has second round ability. Moves very good for a guy his size. Needs a fire lit under his butt.

I thought he was selected already. Hitting on some depth oline to push our tackles. I like it.

Here's a scouting evaluation:

"He is the more athletic of the Oklahoma offensive tackles, but not as polished or reliable as Williams at this point in their development. Thompson lacks overwhelming strength and is too easily bullied on his heels, not effectively extending and utilizing his reach.

He will get grabby with late hands and reactions and needs to eliminate the mental mistakes and immaturity as a senior to prove he can be a consistent edge blocker. Thompson does some things well with his natural balance in space, staying patient and not overextending himself. But in order for him to have a NFL future, he needs to show considerable improvement in 2014, currently penciled in as the Sooners' starting left tackle." - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com

A project that should net at least a decent back-up as long as he takes well to teaching, and improves his technique, and adds sufficient strength in the weight room(which should happen).

pretty good write-up here:

lots of skills, but motivational problems too.

Not sure I get this pick unless we are insuring Kalil and Loadholt. Don't think Thompson can move inside, really struggles with power and isn't as physical as you'd want. He has the athleticism to stick at OT, but needs some refinement in his hand usage. He is a solid run blocker at the first level and did make improvements in pass protection this year. He has all the tools but is going to need some good coaching.

Some call him a finesse player; might be a LG convert so he can double team.
