Finally, a Jon Toth update! One of the biggest mysteries of the NFL Draft was why Toth, a projected fourth round pick, went undrafted. The former Kentucky center — considered by some the fourth best center in the entire draft — mysteriously slipped off the board, and after reports that he was signing with the San Francisco 49ers turned out to be false, there were rumblings that he was injured. For weeks, it’s been radio silence on Toth, but now, according to Rich Hammond of the Orange County Register, he’s got a tryout at the Los Angeles Rams rookie minicamp, which starts today.
The fact that Toth is only getting a tryout and wasn’t picked up as an undrafted free agent like his fellow former Cats is the latest indicator that something’s up. Here’s hoping he shows the Rams he could be a major steal in today’s rookie camp.
