It isn’t often that a prospect from St. Paul’s College generates much attention heading into the draft — not a single player from the small Virginia school has ever been selected — but CB Greg Toler is changing that this year.
He was recently mentioned in Steve Wyche‘s column highlighting small-school players to watch and he is capitalizing on his rising profile with some solid workouts. According to Wyche, he has drawn comparisons to Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie.
Toler performed in front of scouts on March 19 at Richmond’s pro day and measured in at 5-foot-11, 191 pounds. There was a strong crosswind and the jumps were done after the position workouts due to rain. He ran a 4.50 and 4.45 in the 40, had a 33½-inch vertical jump, a 9-foot, 8-inch broad jump, a 4.18 short shuttle, a 6.95 three-cone drill and did 13 bench press reps.
More evidence on Toler’s rapidly improving stock: five teams (Browns, Jets, Ravens, Redskins and Cardinals) have already worked him out privately and a sixth (the Patriots) is scheduled to do so Wednesday.
