Drafted in the 5th round (145th overall) by the San Diego Padres in 2002
Thompson, 19, moved from his home in La Junta to Denver for his senior year of high school to play at the highest level of competition in Colorado and get greater exposure. And he has a strong chance of becoming the state's top draft pick. Thompson isn't physical but competes so hard that he needs to be reigned in at times. His fastball is slightly below-average at 88-89 mph, but he more than offsets it with a dynamic curveball that scouts say is already pro quality. College is a secondary option for Thompson, who first committed to Hawaii for football, later selected Arizona State for baseball and now has Arizona's Yavapai JC for leverage. All of that should be academic, as Thompson's goal is get his professional career off the ground.
