How acquired: Ravens signed him as an undrafted rookie out of the University of Florida in 2012. Career stats: Caught five passes for 51 yards and returned 15 kickoffs for 389 yards last season. Quotable: "I definitely feel like this is important Thursday night," Thompson said. "It's another time for us to go out and compete and show what we got, show our skill sets and a good chance to get our timing down with Joe in a game situation. I want to show them I can make plays in a game situation." Where he stands: Arguably the fastest player on the team, Thompson is the wild card in the competition as a potentially dangerous deep threat to complement Torrey Smith. He has upgraded his hands and route-running after entering the NFL as a somewhat raw prospect. The coaches are intrigued by Thompson's upside and are hopeful that his eye-catching practice performances translate into game production. It's rare for a player this athletic to go undrafted, and the Ravens are banking on him emerging as their latest undrafted free-agent discovery.
