He was the 185th overall pick in the draft – the second Oklahoma offensive lineman picked this year.
Originally a four-star recruit, Thompson saw action in four straight years after taking a redshirt as a freshman. Thompson was named to the All-Big 12 first team by the conference’s coaches and a second-team selection by the Associated Press.
Thompson was originally projected as a mid-round pick, landing somewhere in between the third and fifth rounds.
Thompson couldn’t run at the NFL combine because of a foot injury but performed at the Oklahoma pro day shortly afterward. He said his foot still wasn’t 100 percent at that time.
