New York Giants: Using a 1st-Round Pick on Kadarius Toney
The Giants needed to upgrade the supporting cast of quarterback Daniel Jones this offseason. The sixth pick in the 2019 draft showed promise as a rookie but stumbled last season—he had an 11-to-10 touchdown-to-interception ratio, a passer rating of 80.4 and 11 fumbles.
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.
Given Giants’ pivot this offseason with more “win-now” moves, the defense must continue to play at a high level in 2021 for the Giants to return to being competitive again.
