Nick Toon scouting report

Nick Toon WR Wisconsin #1
Ht: 6’2″

Wt: 215

 
Strengths:
Prototypical size and overall build. Does a great job going up in traffic and making plays. Shows great body control; looks comfortable along the sideline. Does a nice job adjusting to poorly thrown balls. Tough receiver; willing to go across the middle. Strong route runner; very quick with his cuts. Gives a solid effort as a blocker. NFL bloodlines; father, Al, played receiver for the Jets.
Weaknesses:
Limited straight-line speed; not a serious threat to stretch the field. Lacks the quickness to shake defenders; may struggle to consistently get open at the next level and will need to be a pure possession receiver. Missed time with turf toe injury in 2010 and also a thigh bruise.
Comments:
What you see is what you get with Toon, which is both good and bad. The downside is he has a limited upside. But the positive is he is a very safe mid-round prospect. He was a solid No. 1 in college, but lacks that something extra to make him stand out as an NFL prospect. He does everything fairly well, but nothing great. Toon should be able to contribute at the next level, but will never be a difference maker.
