Heading into the 2017 NFL Draft, here are the strengths, weaknesses, and video highlights of center Jon Toth out of Kentucky.

The 2017 NFL Draft will soon be upon us as offensive linemen might not be the flashiest of picks but are in essence some of the most important selections to make for any team. In this year’s draft, when it comes to who are the top centers, it’s hard to not have Jon Toth out of Kentucky in such a conversation.

At 6’5″ and 307lbs., Toth is an anchor at center, capable of containing his assignments and also possessing a high football IQ to decipher blitzes quickly. At Kentucky, Toth played in all four years of college and truly solidified himself as one of the best at his position in the country.

STRENGTHS

More from The Jet Press

In the grand scheme of things, Toth is a very strong center that is willing to do whatever it takes to improve. He’s a workaholic that prides himself on mastering techniques to have consistency and execution in everything he does. Toth excels in pass protection and would thrive in an offensive system that is built around pure pocket passers.

WEAKNESSES

Sometimes Toth picks out the wrong defensive player coming in for a blitz and doesn’t put himself back in a better position once the football is snapped. On longer than usual plays, Toth struggles in adjusting properly which leads to him getting beat and allowing quarterback pressure.

VIDEO HIGHLIGHTS

DRAFT DAY PREDICTION

Toth comes with an impressive resume of being a consistent center that is coachable to the next level. Expect to see Toth get drafted in either the middle to late 2nd Round or early 3rd Round in this year’s draft. Toth has potential to really be a quality starter but needs some work on making the transition to the pros.
