Wildcat center Jon Toth entered the season with late round grades, which is where he still sits on our board.  Some feel his draft stock has improved off his senior season and rate Toth as a middle round prospect.  The center has committed to playing in the Senior Bowl next month.

I’ve been high on Kyle Meadows since 2015 and believe the junior is a solid athlete who can play guard or tackle in a zone blocking system.
