Brandyn Thompson, CB, Boise State

Rarely does a true freshman see much playing time at Boise State. But Brandyn Thompson was one of just five to see playing time during the 2007 campaign. He was just a backup cornerback and a special teams player who made 16 tackles on the season, but that is quite productive for a true freshman. By the following year Thompson was a staple in the Broncos' secondary. He recorded 54 tackles and picked off four passes, including an amazing three interceptions against Hawaii.

As an upperclassman Thompson took over more of a leadership role. He started all 14 games as a junior and intercepted six passes. He also continued to be a solid tackler and totaled 45 on the season. Most opponents tried their best to avoid throwing in Thompson's direction during his senior season. However, Thompson still picked off three passes and broke up seven more. His tackle total decreased, but Thompson still proved to be a very capable coverage corner.

Thompson has great speed, but he lacks the size and strength to be a great corner in the NFL. Yet, with his speed, he could be a solid special teams player and possibly work his way into the secondary, but that may not be enough to get him drafted.
