Oklahoma senior T Tyrus Thompson isn't as "polished or reliable" as bookend teammate OT Daryl Williams, writes CBS Sports' Dane Brugler.
Thompson started 11 games at LT last season after spending his first few years on campus as a part-timer. "Thompson lacks overwhelming strength and is too easily bullied on his heels, not effectively extending and utilizing his reach," Brugler wrote. "He will get grabby with late hands and reactions and needs to eliminate the mental mistakes and immaturity as a senior to prove he can be a consistent edge blocker." We saw Thompson as an average pass blocker last year, but Brugler is correct in his assertion that the prospect has good natural balance and rarely overextends himself. The tools, in other words, are there. "But in order for him to have a NFL future, he needs to show considerable improvement in 2014," wrote Brugler. Jun 6 - 9:35 PM
