Skylar Thompson is a Miami Dolphins quarterback that was a seventh-round pick in the 2022 NFL draft from Kansas State University. We’re going to get to know Skylar Thompson, and not just because there’s an unfortunate likelihood of Tua getting injured this season.
1/15 3:41pm EST – That interception was not cute. Way underthrown. He was backed up in the end zone and definitely felt the pressure.
1/15 3:05pm EST – Looking back on this from a 2023 point of view, we were unfortunately right about Tua getting hurt. We were also right about hearing his name more often. I think that he has been iffy as far as performance goes. Thompson has started two games, as well as playing the majority of three total games. He has completed 57.1 percent of his passes for 534 yards. With one touchdown and three interceptions, it hasn’t been until the playoffs that he really started getting more comfortable and confident. Let’s see what he looks like after half time. I have high hopes.
Highlights of Thompson’s Career
- K-State record for lowest interception percentage (1.81)
- Second in passing touchdowns, passing yards and completions at K-State
- Second in total offensive yards (8,221) at K-State
- 2021 Wins Texas Bowl and is awarded MVP
- 2020 Named the Big 12 Offensive Player of the Week and receives Davey O’Brien Award Great 8 Quarterback
- 2019 Named K-State’s Offensive MVP for the Liberty Bowl and voted a team captain.
Don’t Sleep on Thompson
Thompson was called out for being the most impressive player at two consecutive minicamp practices, so he is definitely one to watch. Depending on what happens in the upcoming days of training camps, Thompson may be turning heads. I know. You’re thinking, “he’s literally the overall 247 draft pick.” That is true. BUT consider his consistency throughout his time at K-State and his promising performance so early with the Miami Dolphins. When we start hearing the name “Skylar Thompson” more frequently, I want us all to meet back here.
