The latest Boise State Bronco taken in the 2011 NFL Draft is defensive back Brandyn Thompson. Thompson has the speed to play the spot and makes big plays, but he needs to be more disciplined and take a few less chances to avoid getting beat in the NFL.
Here is what NFL.com says about Brandyn:
Thompson displays good awareness in pass coverage and against the run. Capable of jamming and re-routing at the line. Can jump routes. Understands zone coverage concepts. Shows pretty good closing burst to the football. Good hands. Gets upfield in a hurry and is a sound tackler in space. Can cover on special teams.
Gets caught taking chances at times. Doesn't have the speed to recover when beaten. Shows some hip-stiffness when transitioning. Loses some in-and-out of his breaks. Can by boxed out by bigger receivers in jump ball situations. Struggles to disengage from physical blockers.
