Thompson is at the absolute bottom of the barrel on this list. After going undrafted out of Florida in 2018, Thompson spent time on the practice squads of the Baltimore Ravens and New York Jets last season. He signed a futures contract with the Lions in January.
Thompson has yet to play a regular season down in the in the NFL. He averaged 4.7 yards per carry with the Ravens in the 2018 preseason on 31 attempts. He also caught ten passes for 76 yards.
Thompson has a thick, hefty frame, the kind of build that the Lions like in their backup power runners. He is looking far up the gamut though as things stand in the running back room. If Thompson is on the 53-man roster when training camp breaks, something probably went very wrong.
Chances of making the 53-man roster: 5 percent
In: Kerryon Johnson, C.J. Anderson, Zach Zenner, Ty Johnson
Out: Theo Riddick, Mark Thompson
