PFF scouting report: Jon Toth, C, Kentucky


Name: Jon Toth

School: Kentucky

Position fit: Center

Stats to know: Graded better in 2015 than 2016. Allowed a sack, two QB hits and seven QB hurries in 2016. Finished with his lowest pass-blocking grade in 2016.

What he does best:

  • Stout, powerful frame.
  • High ceiling, somewhat raw and unrefined.
  • Shows good blocking demeanor on most blocks (looks the part).
  • Executed Kentucky’s inside zone scheme well.
  • Posted the top run-blocking grade among interior offensive linemen during both Senior Bowl practice and in the game.
  • Committed only two penalties in all of 2016 and only nine over the last three years.

Biggest concern:

  • Will lose on initial contact and gets steered by the defensive tackle in the run game.
  • Gets overextended a bit much and loses balance.
  • Comes to a stop to hit at 2L. Is this coaching or lack of skill?
  • Wasn’t asked to extend himself much within Kentucky’s scheme. Raises questions about versatility at the next level.
  • Grading took a step back in 2016 after two strong seasons in 2014 and 2015.

Bottom line: Toth was not challenged in Kentucky’s scheme, but he executed it well, even with a step back in his grading in 2016. He has the power and frame to be a solid run-blocker, though he may be limited to more of a downhill scheme rather than one that heavily feature outside zone. He has potential to develop into a starter.
