NCAA Football: Vanderbilt at Kentucky Mark Zerof-USA TODAY Sports

Jon Toth has put a cap on his college career with a great senior bowl performance. He’s played far better than his three-star high school rating, and continued that in the Senior Bowl, receiving the highest grade of any offensive player on the South Team by Pro Football Focus. They gave him an 81.8. He was the leader of UK’s offensive line this season, and was one of the main reasons why the run game was so successful. He’ll likely be drafted in the mid-to-later rounds of the NFL Draft.
