Thompson, a sixth-round pick from Utah State, is Matt Waldman's third-ranked passing-down back in the 2019 Rookie Scouting Portfolio. He already earned the label of a consistent playmaker during Chiefs minicamp. He's a short but strong runner with excellent contact balance and speed to stretch the field. Andy Reid made the most of Brian Westbrook in Philadelphia and Thompson has many of those skills.
