“In 2018, Thornhill recorded 98 tackles with six interceptions and seven passes broken up. He goes under the radar, but some team sources feel that he is the second-best safety in the 2019 NFL Draft and worthy of going early in the second round. Evaluators like his instincts and his ability to make plays on the ball. They feel he can cover tight ends, has better than expected range, and could fit as a free safety in the NFL. Thornhill had a decent week at the Senior Bowl. Teams don't think he will make it to the third round of the 2019 NFL Draft.” 

Watching Thornhill work you can immediately tell how he polishes technique, and talk about great anticipation and reading the offense. That about his game is extremely impressive. Even at the next level I believe he will be able to avoid flags as well. His coverage skills are brilliant.
