Jalen Thompson Cardinals

Cardinals add Jalen Thompson via the NFL Supplemental Draft

The Arizona Cardinals made the only move at the NFL Supplemental Draft today, acquiring former Washington State Safety Jalen Thompson for a fifth-round pick. The selection of Thompson means the Cards will give up their fifth-round pick in the 2020 Draft.

The NFL supplemental draft is available for players whose eligibility situations changed after the January declaration deadline for the regular draft.

The 5’11”, 190-pound Safety was ineligible for the 2019 Draft after a rule’s violation. It was widely reported that Thompson had a non-negative result to an over-the-counter supplement and was suspended.

Thompson recorded 140 tackles and six intercepts over the last two seasons. He was also named to the All-Pac 12 second team in 2017.

He will now join a stacked backfield for the Cards who have veterans D.J Swearinger, Budda Baker and former Alabama rookie Deionte Thompson.

It’s going to be a fun training camp in Arizona.
