Nick Toon, WR, Wisconsin

Toon has the size, strength, and ball skills to be a solid possession receiver upon entering the NFL. He won't blow past many receivers on out routes, but he can use his size to his advantage in order to make plays down the field.

Toon ran a good, but not great 4.54 40-yard dash at the combine. The problem is that his game film will be tough for teams to glean a lot of information from. Wisconsin spends so much time focusing on their running game that it is tricky to watch him break press coverage and run routes throughout a game.

The Badgers have produced a few solid pass-catchers in the NFL -- including Lee Evans, Travis Beckum, Owen Daniels, Lance Kendricks and Jim Leonhard -- so the lineage is there for those who were successful at Wisconsin to become NFL pros. Toon needs to work on his ability to seal the edge as a run-blocker. He sometimes drop what should be sure catches, but has really improved upon this over his last two seasons. When route-running, he'll need to clean up his footwork and make sharper cuts.

Toon is one of the top senior receivers in this class. His father, Al, was a former player with the New York Jets.

Prediction: 1st Round

Could be another Marques Colston if he develops in a quick way.
