Thompson has more projection remaining than the average college pitcher. He's big-bodied at 6-foot-6, 213 pounds and at times in the past he's flashed 95 mph velocity, though more in fall practice or the summer than in game action this spring. He had an uneven spring, which precluded him from reaching the first three rounds, which appeared possible early in the season. Scouts report Thompson has pitched with an average fastball most of the spring, sitting 87-91 mph with some downhill plane and touching 92 and 93 at his best. His top pitch has been a 12-to-6 curveball that earns some above-average grades. He doesn't stay on top of the ball consistently, leading to his fastball flattening out and becoming very hittable.
