Deionte Thompson
3 Deionte Thompson xx Alabama   6010 195 x

Fits the mold - size, traits etc. Most draft books peg him #1 or #2 ranked safety (along with Rapp and Adderley) so it's a surprise he lasted to the 5th round. Did have a major off-the-field issue (assault), and that could be the reason.

"... - B Brooks (Rates #2 without commentary)

Desired size and length...Soild in zone...stays low in pedal...Instinctive...keeps plays in front of him..Closes quickly...more of a hitter than wrap-up tackler...Not a burner...equally proficient as strong or free safety but best suited for FS...Extremely aware and instinctive - PFW

Fits the profile of the modern safety (range, reliable tackler, ball skills - fast physical and able to track passes like a WR)...Prototypical build... Publically recognized by Lou Saban for his study and preparation...fantastic athlete for the position...Emotional leader of Tide secondary...Reliable open field tackler...unafraid of playing physical...excellent late explosiveness...just one season as full-time starter...A bit high cut....Comp: Eddie Jackson - Lindy's

Long, lanky, rangy centerfielder... Uses fluid athletiiscm,and pure speed to make plays....will deliver big hits as a tackler...fills hard as a run defender....Somewhat of a mixed bag late in season / gave up big plays...sometimes goes for big hit instead of wrapping up....might be a matter of a year or two's worth of reps to bring him up to speed in the pros...Operating in Saban defense works to his advantage rating-wise - Athlon

Talented deep safety...Forced 4 fumbles in 2018...Was a potential Top 15 pick until scouts took a more thorough look at his mid-season play - USA Today

Forty: DNP...BP: DNP....3C: DNP.....VJ: DNP....BJ: DNP....Hand: 9.8...Arm: 32.1.
