So much for the notion that the New York Giants reached when they selected wide receiver Kadarius Toney with the No. 20 overall selection in last week’s NFL Draft. While the Florida product wasn’t readily mentioned amongst the blue-chip prospects at his position leading up to the first round, arguably no wideout has been more lauded over since the conclusion of the draft.
Pro Football Focus’ Mike Renner called Toney the “single most dynamic player in the draft.” Future NFL Hall of Famer Reggie Wayne dubbed the playmaker a “human joystick” and the “toughest” pass-catcher in his class. Moving from analysts to NFL teams, Jacksonville Jaguars head coach Urban Meyer admitted that his team was eyeing Toney at pick No. 25, and that missing out on him left the Jags “heartbroken.”
