Nick Toon, WR, Wisconsin
Height: 6-2. Weight: 215.
40 Time: 4.54.
Vertical: 37.5.
Hand: 9.
Projected Round (2012): 2-4.
4/24/12: Toon was solid at the Combine and his 40 time was better than expected. He is a quality prospect for the second day. Toon flashed at times, but Wisconsin simply didn't throw him the ball that much, as the team featured a ground attack. He caught 64 passes for 926 yards and 10 touchdowns in 2011. Toon would have better production if he played on a team that wasn't based in the run game.

Toon has nice size, runs good routes, and has good hands. He also blocks extremely well. The wide out did a nice job of developing some quick chemistry with new quarterback Russell Wilson. Toon does not have special speed. That and durability seem to be the missing aspects of his game.

8/19/11: Nick Toon missed four games in 2010, and when you add that in with the Badgers having a run-heavy offense, it is not surprising that his numbers were down drastically. The son of former NFL receiver Al Toon, Nick had 54 receptions, 805 yards and four touchdowns in 2009. Last year, his numbers fell to 36 catches for 459 yards and three scores. Toon will need to test well at the combine to help make up for the lack of catches, yards, and touchdowns. If he can get back to his 2009 production, that would be a good start.

122. Nick Toon, WR, Wisconsin: A Grade
Nick Toon could have gone in the third round, so the Saints are getting really good value with him. They're also filling a need because Robert Meachem defected for San Diego.
