SaRodorick Thompson Is Showing His Skills to NFL Draft Scouts
Longtime Texas Tech running back SaRodorick Thompson is doing his best to impress NFL Draft scouts and he's been busy this offseason getting as many opportunities to do so as possible.
First Thompson participated in the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl and had several impressive runs when he wasn't getting stuffed by former teammate Krishon Merriweather.
After that performance, Thompson was called into action at the Reese's Senior Bowl after an injury to Texas Longhorn Roschon Johnson.
Thompson got to Senior Bowl practice a day late but is already impressing the scouts and NFL Coaches on hand to coach the players in attendance. The coaching staff at the senior bowl includes members of the Las Vegas Raiders, Atlanta Falcons, New England Patriots, and New Orleans Saints.
Even with his late start, as I said, he's been impressive.
Here he is showing off his quick feet.
And his punt returning skills.
The drills continue.
The game itself is played on February 4th at 1:30 pm and will be aired on the NFL Network.
Thompson ran for more than 2,600 yards during his time at Texas Tech and scored a whopping 40 touchdowns with double-digit touchdowns in two different seasons. Thompson's best season came in his redshirt freshman campaign when he had more than 900 yards from scrimmage and 12 touchdowns.
Along with the Red Raider running back, there are more than 20 players from current or future Big 12 schools in attendance this week. Tyree Wilson was scheduled to take part as well, but his draft stock has soared this offseason and is solidly inside the top ten picks currently, limiting his need to show what he can do at Senior Bowls.
Thompson on the other hand needs to impress as many coaches and scouts as he can to get a spot in the upcoming NFL Draft.
