New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady says that rookie wide receiver Kenbrell Thompkins is an impressive young player.

Tom Brady has described Kenbrell Thompkins as an "impressive young player" after he scored his third touchdown of the season.

The rookie wide receiver hauled in an 18-yard pass from Brady in the fourth quarter of the New England Patriots' 30-23 win over the Atlanta Falcons.

The quarterback told the team's official website: "He's an impressive young player. It's really rare to see that with a young player, to step in with confidence like that he has.

"We're missing quite a few guys, so hopefully when we get them back, we'll be more efficient. We slugged it out. We came to Atlanta, which is a tough place to play and they've got a very good team. It's nice to win and be 4-0."

Thompkins joined the Patriots as an undrafted free agent during the off-season.
