Countdown to Kickoff: #85 Chris Thompson

Continuing our countdown to the season with the player jersey numbers and Friday marked the 85th day before the Gators kickoff the season. Number 85 is none other than junior receiver Chris Thompson. Thompson is a player that should get on the field a lot in 2015.

He is the fastest player on the team, that is without question with J.C. Jackson out of action. Chris Thompson is a junior receiver with limited time on the field in his first two years. He has caught two passes in each of his first two seasons for a total of 30 yards.

He’s a real deep ball threat so to believe he was utilized in any way the fashion he should have been is a real reach.

Thompson faced a little off-season law matter but that has since been cleared up. He was having a good spring before the incident, but then was sidetracked. If there is one thing that is lacking the most in this offense it is speed throughout the unit. Thompson brings that better than anyone else and he has a chance to be really important to the Gators this season.
