Senior Bowl 2021: 5 Offensive NFL Draft prospects NY Giants should scout
The Reese’s Senior Bowl has arrived in Mobile, Alabama, as have the NY Giants’ brass and the scouting departments of teams across the NFL.
The NCAA’s top senior NFL Draft prospects are all coming together this week to showcase their talents, abilities, and interview skills this week to impress NFL teams and convince them why they should be drafted into the league.
The annual showcase presents the country’s top senior players from the entire NCAA to go through a week of practice, workouts, and interviews with the week culminating and ending with the Senior Bowl game itself.
This year’s Senior Bowl presents many of the top upcoming offensive players in the 2021 NFL Draft.
Here, we breakdown some of the top offensive prospects to watch in this week’s Senior Bowl:
Kadarius Toney – WR, Florida
Size: 6’0, 193 pounds
Career Stats: 120 receptions, 1,590 yards, and 12 receiving touchdowns receiving. 186 carries, 2,170 yards, and 14 rushing touchdowns
Round Projection: Rounds 2-3
Kadarius Toney is one of the upcoming draft’s most electric playmakers.
A four-year player in the SEC, Toney did just about everything for the Florida Gators. Toney played primarily receiver his senior season but also saw extensive snaps and handoffs at running back. This was the story for much of his career as he split time between both positions.
Toney also returned numerous kickoffs and punt returns and returned a punt for a touchdown this past fall. Toney even threw the ball six times in his career with three completions and a touchdown on 80 yards.
Toney was a late riser in the 2021 NFL Draft and his strong last season in Gainseville helped his draft stock rise immensely. Expect Toney to get picked on Day 2 and he should be able to help any NFL team out in a variety of roles but best projects as a slot receiver. The NY Giants are openly in the market for playmakers and Toney would be a nice addition in New York.
