Thompson has emerged as a legitimate two-way prospect, with some teams seeing him as a shortstop thanks to the lack of players at the position in this draft class, and others profiling him as a reliever. He's a solid runner with quickness, good hands and a strong arm, so he should be a solid defender. He has a compact swing and a good approach, and he puts together competitive at-bats and doesn't swing and miss a lot. He may need to make adjustments, however, because it's a flat swing with some holes. He can flash average power but is better gap to gap. He may be shorter than his listed size of 6 feet, 185 pounds, but he is well put together. On the mound he has a fast arm that generates a low-90s heater. He holds his velocity deep into his outings and shows feel for spinning a curveball. More teams see him as a position player, figuring he can have the mound as a fallback option. His name could be called in the first four rounds, luring him away from his commitment to South Carolina.
