Miami selects in seventh round
The Dolphins selected Thompson in the seventh round of the 2022 NFL Draft, 247th overall.
Thompson is a fringe prospect at best, but he was a very good collegiate quarterback at Kansas State and an accomplished four-year starter. None of his four seasons featured high-volume passing, and even the rushing production dried up in the final two seasons, but Thompson has modest dual-threat abilities. The Dolphins will hope to turn him into a quality backup.
