Boom Williams climbs up Mel Kiper’s big board


The biggest name in NFL draft coverage has Kentucky’s own Boom Williams moving up his board on draft day.

Mel Kiper, the king of the draft, ranked Williams at No. 150 in his final rankings, which would be a fifth-round selection if the rankings hold up. That’s Williams’ best projection to date and the only one that has him anywhere close to being drafted.

Unfortunately, Kiper lists Jon Toth as his No. 278 overall prospect, which would mean undrafted for the former Wildcat center. Toth’s projections are all over the place, ranging from fourth-round pick to not selected. Toth is No. 169 in Todd McShay’s final rankings.

Neither Wildcat is expected to get picked up tonight or tomorrow, but Saturday is a big day for their football futures.

    Toth probably gets drafted, purely because this isn’t a draft loaded with great OL guys.

    Boom won’t. And I doubt he gets picked up by anyone. He might have a place in Canada or Europe.

    I hate to say it but I really hope Toth ends up in New England. I just feel his intelligence, character/personality, and work ethic would make him a great cog in the machine that is the Pats.

    What is the deal with Toth? He anchored the SEC’s best O line last year? I thought he was a shoe in to at least be a decent pick the way Freddie slobbered all over him (in a good way!).

    Is it size, speed, or what that doesn’t look good to the league?

      Never mind. I just read Freddie’s latest post and says Toth is “better in a phone booth than on the move”, so it’s lack of speed/downfield blocking ability apparently.
