Number Two: Kadarius Toney

Kadarius Toney is an all-purpose player at the University of Florida and could be a great wide receiver to build around for the New Orleans Saints. The Saints have been riddled with injuries this season, especially at the wide receiver spot, and could use a talented player like Toney to take the reigns.

Toney is a six-foot, 193-pound wide receiver who can also run the ball very well. Drafting Toney could allow the Saints to save many roster spots because he can catch the ball, run the ball, and return the ball.

In four years at Florida, Toney logged 120 receptions, 1,590 receiving yards, and 12 receiving touchdowns. Toney also averaged 8.8 yards per carry and ran for 580 rushing yards and two touchdowns in that role as well.

Toney also logged 15 kick returns, 13 punt returns, 471 return yardage, and one punt return for a touchdown. To add some fuel to the fire, Toney also went three for six passing with 82 yards and a touchdown.

Toney would open up an insane amount of tricks for the Sean Payton lead Saints and could be a great player to add to the offense.
