Cardinals Select Safety Jalen Thompson In Supplemental Draft

Lions checked out supplemental draft prospect Marcus Simms pro day

Under general managers Jerry Reese and Ernie Accorsi (1997-2017) the Giant did not select a player in the Supplemental Draft.

However, Tony Pauline wrote when Simms declared for the Supplemental Draft that he comes with "a lot of character concerns".

No players were taken until the fifth round, when the Cardinals selected Washington State DB Jalen Thompson.

At cornerback, besides Peterson, the Cardinals have Robert Alford, second-round pick Byron Murphy, Tramaine Brock Sr., Chris Jones, Brandon Williams, Deatrick Nichols and undrafted rookie Nate Brooks. Detroit drafted Will Harris in the third round in April for that kind of role and also has Pro Bowl alternate Quandre Diggs capable of playing either position at a high level, so the urgency to pull the trigger on Thompson doesn't seem high. Defensive coordinator Mike Pettine might like having another versatile, hybrid defensive back like Thompson on the roster. Last season, he finished with 66 tackles, three tackles for loss, two interceptions, and eight passes defensed en route to Honorable Mention all-conference recognition.

The Cougars and Thompson could cross paths this fall, presuming Thompson earns a spot on Arizona's 53-man. He also racked up just under 1,000 yards on kick returns and 157 yards as a punt returner.

"Thompson's size (he reportedly weighed in at a shade over 5-10 and 186 pounds at his National Football League workout Monday) is concerning on the National Football League level considering he plays with an aggressive, hard-hitting style". He has been charged with two DUIs and brings other character concerns.

The Cardinals' full-time safety rotation that began the 2018 season featured small, do-everything safety Budda Baker, unheralded free-agent signee Tre Boston, and veteran Antoine Bethea.

Yet, with the Packers need in the secondary and at wide receiver, it made sense that the team at least explore adding Thompson and Simms, even if it ended up without either player on its roster.
