Texas DB Josh Thompson invited to NFL combine

Texas defensive back Josh Thompson received an invite to the 2022 NFL scouting combine.

It presents a great opportunity for Thompson to showcase his skills in front of scouts from every team in the league.

Thompson declared for the NFL draft after Texas’ season finale against Kansas State, forgoing his extra year of eligibility the NCAA rewarded players because of COVID-19.

The former three-star has been a reliable player in the Texas secondary for the past three years.

In his 22 starts at Texas, Thompson grabbed two interceptions and made over 100 tackles. The versatile defensive back played both corner and nickel in his college career as well as playing a major role on special teams.

Texas has a rich history of putting defensive backs in the NFL and Thompson looks to be next in line.

The 2022 NFL combine will take place in Indianapolis during the first week of March.
