Guys...the article actually quotes Hynes mentioning Thompson's speed as a positive:

Hynes credits Thompson's quick ascension to not only his natural gifts of size and speed, but his excellent work habits. "With his speed, [that part of the game] won't be an adjustment for him. It is going to be playing against older players and maybe a little bit more of a systematic game."
That was what surprised me. Pleasantly.
