He was the 12th safety selected in 2017 and was one of three safeties drafted by the Seahawks that year. Thompson was the second safety selected by the Seahawks behind Michigan's Delano Hill, but was selected before Cincinnati’s Mike Tyson.[3]

On May 11, 2017, the Seattle Seahawks signed Thompson to a four-year, $3.07 million contract that includes a signing bonus of $672,004.[4]

Throughout training camp, Thompson competed against Bradley McDougald to be the primary backup free safety.[5] Head coach Pete Carroll named Thompson the third free safety on the Seahawks’ depth chart to begin the regular season, behind Earl Thomas and Bradley McDougald.[6]

Thompson was inactive as a healthy scratch for the Seahawks’ first seven games (Weeks 1-8). On November 5, 2017, Thompson made his professional regular season debut and made one tackle during their 17-14 loss against the Washington Redskins in Week 9.[7] He finished his rookie season in 2017 with four combined tackles (two solo) in nine games and zero starts.[8]

Personal life

He is the brother of ex-NFL safety Cedric Thompson.
