6. Shaq Thompson OLB, Washington
Shaq Thompson is the most versatile player in this entire draft class. He can play safety, outside linebacker and running back. The skill-set that has the NFL so excited though is his pass rushing ability.
Thompson is an incredible athlete, I know we say that a lot but Thompson’s talent truly is freakishly incredible. Thompson is a hard hitter, who plays the game fast. His ability to do everything makes him a great pass rusher, he can beat the offensive tackle with a large repertoire of attacks.
Thompson has talent and I can’t wait to see how it pans out in the NFL.
