New Orleans Saints: The Fourth Wide Receiver Conundrum

4 of 4

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?
