Now’s not the time to judge Kadarius Toney
New York Giants’ rookie wide receiver Kadarius Toney hasn’t had the greatest start to his NFL career after only finishing one minicamp practice and skipping voluntary OTA’s.
Kristopher Knox of Bleacher Report wrote an article picking one offseason regret that every NFL team should have and he picked Toney for the Giants. Here’s a portion of what he wrote:
Taking a first-round flier on Florida wideout Kadarius Toney may have been a regrettable gamble, however. It’s not that Toney cannot become a quality receiver; the problem is that he’s unpolished and may not be a big contributor this season.
“His late-career production and role, lack of consistency throughout his game and overall rawness should cause some concerns for a team looking to select him and feed touches to right out of the gate,” Nate Tice of the B/R NFL scouting department wrote.
With Jones needing to deliver now, a first-round project gadget player was risky. New York passed on a more archetypal receiver in Rashod Bateman to take Toney as well as potential early starters in cornerback Caleb Farley and offensive tackle Christian Darrisaw.
I think people like Knox as well as Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk are overreacting about Toney. Let’s wait and see how he performs once the preseason and regular season kick off. It’s unfair to judge him by some minicamp practices.
