Nick Toon #88
Nick Toon joined the Saints as the 4th round draft choice in 2012. He had an outstanding career as a Wisconsin Badger. He is third in his school’s receiving history with 2,447 career receiving yards/171 career receptions and fifth in his school’s touchdowns with 18.
The draft skinny on him is his size and route running ability. He can use his body to make a play on the ball. However, he may lack top receiver speed. Currently, he is learning the X or split end position.
*Interesting tidbit–Toon is the son of Al Toon, a former New York Jet.
Conclusion and a Question
The competition among these players for the 4th receive spot is expected to be played out until Week One. Roby is seen as a special teams standout, and certainly Nick Toon will be given time to develop. This logically leaves the battle between Arrington and Morgan for the spot. Who wins the spot?
