Negatives: Displays hesitation in his game and is late to react. Seems to do more chasing at times rather than playmaking.
Analysis: Toomer is a prospect whose game is on the rise, but he?s a late-boomer who?s transitioning his natural athleticism onto the football field. He possesses the size and skill to play on a strong side for a variety of defensive schemes and is a terrific developmental prospect.
