04/30/2012 - A closer look at the Saints' picks: Round 4/122 -- Nick Toon, WR, 6-2, 215, Wisconsin...The son of former New York Jets star Al Toon, he doesn't possess blazing speed, but does have the kind of size the Saints like in their wide receivers. - The Sports Xchange

04/09/2012 - NFL DRAFT SCOUT TOP WIDE RECEIVERS: Nick Toon, Wisconsin, 6-2, 215...As the son of Wisconsin Hall of Famer and New York Jets Pro Bowl wide receiver Al Toon, Nick has always endured the obvious comparison. In that regard, so far, so good. Nick surpassed his father's receiving yardage mark at Wisconsin (2,103 from 1982-85) with 171 catches for 2,447 yards, although his 18 touchdowns are one short of his father's 19. In the 1985 draft, Al Toon was selected tenth overall, ahead of Jerry Rice, but his career was shortened by nine concussions and he retired at 29. Nick is a physical player and excellent route runner, similar to his father. But Nick is expected to wait until the late second or third round to hear his name called. He has had his share of injuries the past two seasons. He missed three games in 2010 (turf toe) and sat out the Ohio State game (thigh). Toon underwent surgery on his left foot twice, including once in midseason last year. At his pro day in early March, Toon performed well with a 40-yard time of 4.43 seconds and a vertical jump of 39 inches. - Frank Cooney, The Sports Xchange

03/08/2012 - Wisconsin Pro Day: Senior wide receiver Nick Toon shaved more than a tenth of a second off of the 4.54 second time he had posted at the Scouting Combine, ran crisp routes and plucked the ball out of the air easily, highlighting what one veteran NFL scout called an "impressive group overall" at the Wisconsin Pro Day. The 6-2, 215 pound Toon was clocked at 4.43 seconds Wednesday. The improved time is important as average straight-line speed is considered to be Toon's biggest shorting. He also improved upon his vertical jump (39") from the Combine (37.5) and registered a 10'10" broad jump, as well. Toon is currently rated by NFLDraftScout.com as a 3rd round prospect and the No. 100 player on our board, overall. Toon was hardly the only Wisconsin standout to enjoy a strong day. - NFLDraftScout.com

02/22/2012 - Wisconsin wide receiver Nick Toon, the son of the former New York Jets' three-time Pro Bowl wideout Al Toon, has been around football his entire life, and is even familiar with some of the scouts and team executives at the combine. But the younger Toon isn't looking for, or certainly not expecting, any breaks from the scouts because of his famous surname. "I'm going [to Indianapolis] to make it on my own," the younger Toon said. "The name's not going to help." Nick Toon had a career bests in receptions (64), yards (926), and touchdowns (10) in 2011 in the Badgers' well-balanced offense, and league scouts regard him as Round 1 through 3 prospect, provided he checks out for medical staffs on the foot injury that slowed him late in the season. Toon reportedly has experienced some lingering problems with the foot, and may have to bypass the 40. Al Toon played eight seasons with the Jets, but his career was cut short by multiple concussions. - Len Pasquarelli, The Sports Xchange

01/02/2012 - Scouting the Wisconsin passing game: Wisconsin senior quarterback Russell Wilson solidified the offense with his leadership, rushing and passing. Wilson made himself into a Heisman Trophy candidate with his all-around athletic ability, throwing, running and catching passes. Wilson has completed 72.7 percent of his passes, completing 189-of-260 passes for 2,692 yards. Wilson's ability to not turn over the ball is a hidden success to Wisconsin's run to the Big Ten title. Wilson has thrown just three interceptions and tossed 28 touchdown passes. Wisconsin's diversified attack seven players with at least 12 receptions poses a problem for Oregon's defense. The Ducks can't just focus on stopping Wisconsin's running game, not with receivers Nick Toon and Jared Abbrederis combining for 100 receptions and 1,537 yards and 15 receiving touchdowns. Montee Ball can not only run the ball, but ranks fourth on the team with 17 catches for 248 yards and five touchdown receptions. - The Sports Xchange

12/16/2011 - For Nick Toon, the dividing line seems pretty clear. Before sitting out Wisconsin's Oct. 15 game against Indiana because of a left foot injury, he had 25 catches for 447 yards and six touchdowns in five games. Since missing that game, he has 30 catches for 375 yards and three touchdowns in seven games. Toon said his dip in production doesn't have anything to do with being slowed down by his foot, which feels better now than it has in a year. "It's just been a function of the way the game has gone," Toon said. "I can only control what I can control. My job is to go out and catch the ball and help the team to do that." With the Badgers preparing to face Oregon in the Rose Bowl, Toon hinted at some frustration but said team success is more important. "As a receiver, you want the ball thrown to you on every down, but it's not the reality of football," he said. "We've been having success offensively and we've been winning games - and that's what's important. The team success is much more important than my individual success. When we're doing well as a team, everybody's happy." Badgers coach Bret Bielema said he's expecting big things from Toon in the last game of his college career. A big performance in the Rose Bowl certainly would help Toon recapture the attention of NFL scouts. "I need a big performance," Toon said. "I think, obviously, any time you go out and perform well, it only helps you. I definitely would agree with Coach B. I am looking forward to going out there and playing one of my best games and finishing my collegiate career on a high note." - AP Sports

10/15/2011 - Wide receiver Nick Toon has a left foot injury and is not expected to play in No. 4 Wisconsin's game against Indiana on Saturday. It's the same foot Toon had surgery on in the offseason, but the most recent injury is not expected to keep him out for an extended period of time. Toon, the son of former Wisconsin and New York Jets standout receiver Al Toon, leads the Badgers with 25 catches, 447 yards and six touchdowns receiving this season. - AP Sports

09/25/2011 - Now that he's finally healthy, Wisconsin's Nick Toon has big things in mind. He wants to be one of the best wide receivers in the country and follow his father's path to the NFL. Toon had a career-high 155 yards receiving and two touchdowns in the Badgers' 59-10 victory over South Dakota on Saturday. He's the son of former Wisconsin and New York Jets standout Al Toon, but his Badgers career appeared to stall last year when he struggled with a turf toe injury. Going into Saturday night's highly anticipated conference opener against Big Ten newcomer Nebraska at Camp Randall Stadium, Toon is bound to start getting his share of national attention. Badgers coach Bret Bielema says Toon is "as good as any wide receiver in the country." - AP Sports

09/24/2011 - Nick Toon had a career-high 155 yards receiving and two touchdowns, helping No. 6 Wisconsin rout South Dakota 59-10 at Camp Randall Stadium on Saturday. Wisconsin (4-0) recovered from a slow start to take control of the game with a 21-point outburst in the final six minutes of the second quarter. James White had a 49-yard touchdown run, Toon scored on a 59-yard catch-and-run from quarterback Russell Wilson and Toon added another score with 12 seconds left to send Wisconsin into halftime with a 31-3 lead Wilson had another big day for the Badgers, completing 19 of 25 passes for 345 yards and three touchdowns before taking a seat in the fourth quarter. Running back Montee Ball added a pair of touchdowns for Wisconsin, which will open its Big Ten schedule at home next week with a much stiffer challenger in No. 9 Nebraska. - AP Sports

09/22/2011 - WR Nick Toon snagged 5 passes for 75 yards and 2 touchdowns versus NIU. The fifth-year senior hadn't racked up so many yards in a game since an 80-yard showing on Nov. 21, 2009 at Northwestern. He owns 121 career catches for 1,719 yards and 11 scores. His father, Al, finished his Wisconsin career with 131 catches for 2,103 yards and 19 scores. - The Sports Xchange

09/22/2011 - Going solely by the stats, senior WR Nick Toon is enjoying a solid but not great start to the 2011 season. He owns 14 catches for 198 yards and 3 TDs. The catches rank sixth among Big Ten players and his yardage total ranks eighth. But if you ask Wisconsin coach Bret Bielema how Toon has played, he's well on his way to all-Big Ten honors. "Nick Toon has probably played the most three complete games that I can remember for a long time - really doing a nice job for us." Toon boasts 121 career catches for 1,719 yards and 11 scores. His father, Al, finished his Wisconsin career with 131 catches for 2,103 yards and 19 scores. All of those marks were Wisconsin records. - The Sports Xchange

09/01/2011 - SCOUTING THE OFFENSE: Contrary to popular opinion, Wisconsin's scheme isn't about three yards and a clump of FieldTurf pebbles. Yes, the Badgers love to punish opponents with their massive linemen, but then they build off that with a play-action game that takes advantage of cheating defenses. Russell Wilson's arrival allows coordinator Paul Chryst to re-install all of the rollout stuff that worked so well for Tyler Donovan in 2006-07. Wilson will feed WRs Nick Toon and Jared Abbrederis when he's not busy handing the ball to Montee Ball and James White. - The Sports Xchange

09/01/2011 - PLAYERS TO WATCH: WR Nick Toon - The senior never hit his stride last season due to multiple injuries. Then he missed spring ball due to surgery on his left foot. Then he sat out a week of practice this fall when he dinged the same foot. But Toon and coach Bret Bielema say he's ready to be the undisputed No. 1 receiver that he was in 2009 (54 catches, 805 yards, 4 TDs). - The Sports Xchange

05/20/2011 - PLAYERS TO WATCH IN 2011: WR Nick Toon - After enjoying a monstrous sophomore year (54 catches, 805 yards, 4 TDs), Toon's injury-plagued junior season (36-459-3) leaves him hungry to wrap up his career on a better note. - The Sports Xchange

05/20/2011 - STARS OF 2011: WR Nick Toon - Though he never appeared to be completely healthy in 2010, Toon owns 107 career catches for 1,521 yards and 8 touchdowns as he heads into his senior year. - The Sports Xchange
