poor tackler??? obviously this is not the same guy your talking about because he's one of the better tacklers on Cal's D.
Thompson was terrible as a tackler in the last half of the season. I did not like what I saw in him at all. He was getting beat left and right, and just didn't look good out there. Not a fan of Syd'Quan at all.
He's going to have to clock in the 4.3's to keep his stock from plummeting. He grades out to the middle-3rd to late 4th for me.

If we pass on Joe Haden at #13 or #16/17, I think he could be a great option in the second round.
Pass on Haden? He may not be there when we pick.
Thompson in the 2nd would be horrific value. I would seriously question what Scottie is thinking if he selected Thompson, a small, poor-tackling, non-physical corner who would be nothing more than a dime-back for us, where there will be better players (based on my observations) all the way up to the 4th round. I can name about 10 corners I'd take over Thompson.
