Compton spent his first five NFL seasons with the Washington Football Team, where he played in 57 games over five seasons (2013-2017). He played last season with the Raiders, where he was credited 38 tackles while appearing in nine games.

In his NFL career, Compton has 85 games of NFL experience, including 40 starts. Compton has 365 career tackles, three interceptions, and a sack.
