Idaho - Vandals
Korey Toomer - #16 - OLB-FB
|Hometown:||Las Vegas, NV|
Linebacker-tight end out of Las Vegas, Nev. Originally committed to Idaho, but failed to qualify academically and attended Arizona Western College for two years — recorded 44 tackles, 3½ for loss and a sack with two forced fumbles in 2007; and 86-8½-0 with a forced fumble and three interceptions in ’08. Appeared in 12 games in ’09 and was credited with 8-0-0. Redshirted in ’10. Was team MVP in ’11 — played all 12 games, starting the final 11 at outside linebacker, and produced 68-10½-4 with four pass breakups and an interception.Summary:
One of the best linebacker testers in this year’s draft class, Toomer is just a one-year starter, having spent two years in junior college and another redshirting at Idaho, but has outstanding timed speed and athletic ability — vertical (42 inches), broad jump (10 feet, 10 inches) and short shuttle (4.00 seconds) bested all linebackers at the Combine, and his 6.87-second 3-cone drill would’ve placed second. Was very popular on the NFL team visit circuit after his impressive workout, though tape evaluation reveals inexperience and green instincts. Will require patience to learn an develop, but closing speed and coverage and special-teams potential will be coveted.
