Re: Saints sign two undrafted rookies

keep an eye on Marcus Thompson out of Rutgers. he may just make the practice squad. diamond in the rough for special teams? versatile. a bit of FB and DE in is history. 4.66 40 and a 3 cone of 7.09 aint shabby. he is a hustler coming out college

Marcus Thompson
School: Rutgers
Position: DE

Positive: Two-year starter who posted a career-best 51 tackles and 5.5 sacks last season. Undersized college defensive end who plays with great intensity. Displays terrific movement skills, bends his knees, and quickly changes direction. Explosive, aggressive, and chases the action in every area of the field. Effectively uses his hands to protect himself, quick off the snap and displays a short burst of speed.

Negative: Overwhelmed at the point of attack by large offensive lineman or disrupted from the action by the initial block. Does not possess the long speed necessary to pursue plays.

Analysis: Thompson was a competitive defender who made plays based on his hustle but lacks the size and speed numbers to consistently contribute at the next level.
