Did the Giants hit a home run with Kadarius Toney?
The New York Giants have been getting some mixed reviews after using the 20th overall pick of the 2021 NFL Draft on wide receiver Kadarius Toney. But for the most part people have been positive with many NFL executives raving about the Toney pick, according to Matt Lombardo of GMenHQ.
“I really like the NFL Draft overall,” an AFC scouting director told GMenHQ. “The trade was a great job by Gettleman, but Toney was really a sick choice. They needed a playmaker and got one. I like their entire draft, but love that pick.”
Even though Toney isn’t the best route-runner, one executive pointed out that he of course has time to get better in that area.
“The best part about this pick for them,” the AFC scouting director said. “Is he can line up at all three spots, has playmaking ability, and is outstanding after the catch.
“He might not be a refined route-runner yet, but will get better. He really helps that offense with speed and run after the catch.”
The nice thing is that the Giants don’t need Toney to come in and make a huge impact right away because of how much talent they already have at receiver.
