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).
