2022 Guide: What Ourlads’ NFL Scouting Services said about SKYLAR THOMPSON:
Kansas State, 6017 217 4.86. Three-year starter, Independence, MO. Low end velocity thrower with the ability to get in defensive seams for big plays with his legs. Throws the ball off platform with limited velocity and struggles with accuracy. Ability to make every throw is limited by arm strength. There are some throws that he struggles with getting to his target in time before defenders are able to catch up with the throw. Deep ball accuracy is affected negatively by his lack of elite arm strength. The ball seems to take its time getting to its target on out breaking routes. Has good ball placement on underneath and short crossing routes. Running ability is where his value is placed. Has clean mechanics that work well with his throwing motion and release. Has athletic ability. Questionable decision making on routine reads. Lacks pocket awareness and oftentimes not ready to throw with a base, preferring off platform throws instead.
