The honors continue to roll in for Jon Toth. Toth competed in yesterday’s Senior Bowl and received high praise. Pro Football Focus, a well-respected analyzer, gave Toth a grade of 81.8, which ranked him as the third highest offensive player. The site had nice things to say about the former Cat:
“He was easily the most impressive lineman on the South squad, flashing impressive athleticism on inside zone-rushing plays in particular. Toth’s movement skills enable him to make blocks in space. He looks comfortable in the screen game or when required to cut off linebackers at the second level.”
Pro Football Focus was not the only site showcasing Toth’s talents. Scout.com rated him as the fourth best offensive player at the Senior Bowl. The three players in front of him were OJ Howard from Alabama, Forrest Lamp from WKU and Conor McDermott from UCLA.
Other interior linemen came in rated higher than him by analysts, but we like what we saw. Is he a guard or a center? He actually looked more comfortable at guard, where he can anchor down against power defenders and hold his own on most occasions. He’s good at sliding down the line, so we could see him being an effective pulling guard at the next level. He always seems to be in position, but has to be careful about getting beat by quick swim moves.
This is extremely high praise for Toth. He is projected to be a 6th/7th round pick in April’s NFL Draft and should be an anchor for an NFL offensive line for years to come.
