New Orleans Saints Draft: Guard Jon Toth From Kentucky Is One Hawkish Cat
By Dean Mullen
Jon Toth is going to be playing on Sundays. Jon Toth is going to be drafted too. This Wildcat will make any team pay for passing on him. The New Orleans Saints may wanna look at some tape on him.
Jon Toth stands at 6-foot-5 and weighs 305 lbs. He has always proven his worth over and over again. Toth came out of high school not very highly touted, being only a two star recruit. The only scholarship that came in from a Power Five conference was the Kentucky Wildcats. They were happy with that.
At Kentucky, he played 48 career games at center. He also went on to get Second Team All-Sec honors, as well as an invite to the Reese’s Senior Bowl. Toth will go into the NFL playing guard most likely. Arguably, there is enough evidence for him to actually play at tackle. Although the guard position is where he’ll most likely dominate.
Toth has a plethora of abilities that will make NFL teams salivate at his ceiling. He has a great awareness of the connection between mind and body. His instincts and quickness are off the charts as far as picking up blitzes. Toth also has a sturdy frame which is built to add more muscle mass.
Furthermore, he is like a leech when making contact with defenders. By the same token, Toth can break off quickly, to move on to the next level to locate the next oncoming defender. Draft analyst Chad Reuter from from NFL.com had this to say:
"“A technically sound, intelligent leader, I expect Toth to be an NFL starter one day.”"
It’s pointless to attempt to guess where Toth will be drafted as far as round. The reason being, that this guy is gonna be priceless wherever he goes. This pick is such a “no brainer.” NFL scouts better take notice of this guy especially the Black and Gold.
