Biography

The Arizona Cardinals selected Alabama safety Deionte Thompson as the first pick in the fifth round and overall no. 139 pick in the 2019 NFL Draft on Saturday. Thompson was a projected third-rounder who may have slid due to injury concerns. In 2018, Thompson led Alabama in solo tackles (48) and forced fumbles (four). He earned first-team All-America and first-team All-SEC honors as a junior and was a part of two national championship teams at Alabama (2015, 2017).
