Ourlads' Profile:

2016 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about DARIAN THOMPSON: Boise State, 6017 208 4.65. Three-and-a-half year starter from Lancaster, CA. The all-time Mountain West’s interception leader with 19 picks, passing Eric Weddle. Two-time first team All-MWC in 2014 and 2015. At his best when playing closer to the line of scrimmage. Has experience at both free and strong safety. No hesitation or wasted motion, he closes quickly on the ball. An instinctive safety who plays with good anticipation. Takes good angles in run support. Dependable in the open field. Breaks down or runs through a ball carrier. A leader and a playmaker on the field. Instinctive player who is quick to read and react. Can run with a tight end and mirror their route. Good range from hash mark to sideline. Good discipline and awareness. As a deep safety he reads the quarterback and his pattern recognition to get a jump on the ball. May lack the speed on the next level. Senior Bowl notes: Good ball skills. Solid moving downhill and is aggressive in run support. Good backpedal maintaining depth in deep coverage with good zone awareness and pattern recognition. Demonstrated physical play and good cover skills as a box type safety. 2015 stats: 65 T, 8.5 TFL, 1 sack, 2 FF, 5 INT, 4 PBU. BTR:left 4.79, right 4.83. OSR:14/17. Fifth/sixth round. (A-30 3/8, H-9 1/8, VJ-32.5, SS-4.33).
