Will Kadarius Toney have a big rookie year?
Heading into the upcoming NFL season, I think there’s a good chance that New York Giants’ rookies Azeez Ojulari and Kadarius Toney will contribute in a big way.
Alex Kay of Bleacher Report decided to predict who the impact rookie for each team will be for the upcoming season. He believes that Toney will be the Giants’ impact rookie. Here’s a portion of what he wrote:
Kadarius Toney will likely line up in the slot regularly for New York as a rookie, and the 6’0″, 193-pounder should be able to thrive in that role. He brings immense quickness and explosiveness off the line and has quality hands that allow him to make big plays.
It would be a waste to only put Toney in the slot, however, as the Giants can scheme up all sorts of ways to get the ball in the rookie’s hands. The Gators utilized him as a gadget player, and he could thrive in a similar role in New York.
With Kenny Golladay, Sterling Shepard and Darius Slayton all in line for receiving targets, Toney can work as a big-play threat who will hit at least a few home runs for New York this season.
I do believe Toney could have a big season because I got a feeling he will take over in the slot for Sterling Shepard because the veteran will get injured at some point this season.
But if I had to pick who I think will make the biggest impact as a rookie, I think it will be Ojulari because the Giants’ desperately need an edge rusher to play well and he should be able to feast with a great secondary behind him and a very good defensive front eating up blocks ahead of him.
