Analysis

Four-star recruit coming out of Bishop Gorman in Las Vegas. In college, it has been Thompson-Robinson’s athletic prowess that has stood out. His strong arm and quick feet pop on film, and he often creates big plays with his legs when he sees a hole up the middle. These raw talents are some of the best in the class. However, it’s his technique, or lack thereof, that’s cause for concern. When confronted with pressure, especially from the interior, DTR’s stature begins to deteriorate. His feet become jittery, and it becomes increasingly difficult for him to fire an accurate ball in a tight pocket. His ball placement is also inconsistent, rarely in places for receivers to make plays after the catch. When the pocket is clean, he can typically throw accurately between the numbers but struggles with outside throws. He has a noticeable hitch at the end of his drop, which sometimes throws off his timing and rhythm, on top of already inconsistent feet. His raw skills pop, but it often happens when everything around him is perfect, especially his protection. He may lack mechanical refinement, but shows enough ability to make plays with his arm and legs to be worth a late round flier.
